Scrolling Text on an RGB

by DarrenStarr on Thu Feb 07, 2019 9:29 pm

I purchased a 32x32 RGB LED display. I have the unit working fine, but would like to scroll text from right to left across the display. Is there a specific command in the matrix library that would allow me to do this?

Thank you.

I reviewed the GITHUB info you suggested, but it was not clear that the code was allowing the text to wrap and therefore not helpful. I noticed that in the example sketch for the 16x32 RGB matrix, the text freely scrolled. I have tried to adapt the sketch for the 32x32, but cannot seem to get the text to scroll. Is there some code available for the 32x32 that would enable the text to scroll as well?

That I don't know but, perhaps someone else here might.
