Bodmer's TFT_HX8357 Library on Grand Central

Post by 4Dopenroad »

Is there a way to make the library ( https://github.com/Bodmer/TFT_HX8357 ) function correctly with the Adafruit Grand Central? My understanding was that the board was compatible with a normal Arduino Mega 2560. I understand that the Mega 2560 is an AVR board and that the Grand Central is SAMD but thought my program would still compile. The other libraries I'm including do not produce errors or warnings for the Grand Central board, just the one for the HX8357 based display. Hopefully I'm just doing something wrong. If not, I'm guessing the library for the HX8357 will need to be modified, which is likely beyond my meager coding abilities. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Try the Adafruit HX8357 TFT library with the latest Adafruit GFX. This supports the M4 (SAMD51).

Thanks. In the past, I was only able to get the required speed from Bodmer’s library, but with the better performance of the Grand Central compared to a standard Arduino Mega2560, I may be able to use the more standard libraries.
