Duffer did a fantastic job on the uOLED 128/160 display device objects.· While I was using his object, I quickly whipped up a simple/small 8x8 Font Editor app in .Net C#.· Attached is a screen shot and the executable + a dependency dll (both in the zip file).· You will need .Net 2.0 Runtime to run this app.· Extract the zip file to a folder and run the app. Simple.

Rev 1.0.0.2· On Sept 14 2007:
1. Fixed situation where the textboxes to enter custom formatting were readonly
2. Added 'Clear' button behavior

1. Added Statement Formating for Propeller and Stamp calls to uOLED object calls

Nice work. Clean and simple. The only thing missinghttp://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/idea.gif ...
A text box with·a prototype statement·that you can just copy and paste into your code...
OLED.ADD_BITMAP (Chr, $60,$9F,$95,$64,$00,$00,$00,$00)

Saves time and no mistakes copying the hex values.

Steve

P.S.· And just to show that you haven't forgotten about·our Stamp cousins, a second box for Stampers...

Very handy, ALIBE!

I like the Inverse option. Maybe I'm looking at the app wrong, but if I select <Custom> in the Precanned dropdown, should I be able to put in my own Prefixes and suffixes. the text boxes don't seem to want to accept input when <Custom> is selected. Also, is the Clear button not functional? No biggie, just wondering.

Thanks,· Steve

Good catch Steve

That was a sneaky bug was'nt she! I fixed that issue and added a couple more features. Updated the rev history and the binaries.

Thanks, Nagi
