Hi Peter,

I just got me a RPi 3, that one works.

Seems that there really is some incompatibility of mmbasic with a RPi2.

Thanks for you support.
I can give mmbasic a try now .

Regards
Daniel

Hi Peter,

btw. GUI FRAME command doesn't display the 3rd character of the caption.

One question:
How to disable the blinking cursor in a program?
I want to play around with the GUI elements and always have the blinking cursor on screen while the program is executed.

Regards
Daniel

For the record...

Pi 2 Model B v1.1 (BCM2836 Cortex-A7 - now deprecated)
Pi 2 Model B v1.2 (BCM2837 Cortex-A53)
Both units have no problems with Peter's (and Geoff's) MMBasic - jessie or stretch
versions - whether by ssh or by local keyboard/mouse and display.

Thanks Peter & Geoff
Best Regards

Hi Peter,

regarding the cursor off: I certainly read Appendix E and also gave it a try,
but this is not doing exactly the job I had in mind.
Since I am not planning to operate the Pi headless I would like to keep the
blinking cursor in the Bash as well as in the mmbasic prompt or edit.
But with the guideance in Appendix E the cursor is completely off.

I rather would like to turn off the cursor at the beginning of a basic programm,
and turn it back on right before the program exits.

Is there an option for that as well?

Regarding my non-functional RPi2: I was looking at the various Pi models available,
and I must confess it's not a RPi2, but a RPi1 Model B.
That's most probably the cause of the trouble I had.

Regards
Daniel

That definitely isn't supported as it uses different I/O - sorry

Try executing the requisite Linux commands using the SYSTEM basic statement at the top an bottom of the Basic program

Hi *,

Is the official 7" display for RPi supported by MMBasic, incl. touch?

No. If it is HDMI then it can be used as per any other HDMI screen but touch is not currently supported. I don't have one to develop with so won't be progressing this at the moment

Hi *,

I am a little bit confused about the right display for RPi + MMBasic.
HDMI surely works, no question about this.
But I also always read support for SSD1963 based displays, which are mostly controlled over SPI, I assume.
But how is the touch controller connected in such a case?

What I have read so far the RPi does only have one SPI, how is this going along with the two SPI slaves in case of an SPI driven display with touch?
Is the RPi providing two individual chip selects for the two slaves then?

Can you recommend a display in the 5"..7" range with touch, which is supported by MMBasic?

Thx. and Regards
Daniel

The Pi-cromite supports 5 and 7" SSD1963 displays over an 8-bit parallel interface Pinout details are in the manual. This is only used as an application display and not a console display. The easiest application display to use is one of the 3.5" or 4" ili9481 displays as these plug directly onto the Pi

All types of displays support touch using the XPT2046 controller. A single SPI channel can be used for any number of devices as long as they have separate chip selects.
