Blinka logo taking space in 1.8" TFT v2

by Andrescoutt on Fri Apr 17, 2020 11:25 pm

Hello, I am using the Adafruit 1.8" TFT Display with CircuitPython and the adafruit_st7735r library. I ran the example from:

https://learn.adafruit.com/1-8-tft-disp ... quickstart

This example is perfect for me to start using the display (I want to display some text as selectable menu items), but now I wonder how I can avoid the blinka logo from taking space? I would like to remove the logo so I can use all the rows and columns.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

You can't remove the Blinka logo when using the default terminal included with the CircuitPython firmware. It's built in.

If you want to make your own interface, then you can use displayio:
https://learn.adafruit.com/circuitpytho ... -displayio
That will replace the built in terminal with the logo with whatever you provide. The guide includes an example for text:
