Displaying Strings on the Screen

Contributions to this software library are always welcome. Please ensure that you post program listings rather than .raw files. They give a reasonable idea of what your program does without having to load them into a DM42 and you can also include comments in your code. Check out the following link for a decoder/encoder: http://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/decoder/

You can then copy/paste the listing and post it in "code" tags.

Displaying Strings on the Screen

Post by Bill (Smithville NJ) » Sun Feb 04, 2018 9:37 pm

NOTE: The routines have been updated on February 12. The routines now include both "Big Char" and "Small Char" fonts as specified in Free42.
I have also changed the way the programs interface. Please page down to the Feb 12 post for description of the revisions and the revised RAW files.

While the DM42 has a beautiful screen and capability to display multiple lines to it, the HP-42S programming leaves a lot to be desired in the way information can be presented to the screen.

I’ve been wondering how I was going to make use of this additional screen real estate when wawachief posted his Sudoko program demonstrating that numeric digits could be drawn on the screen. I have taken this idea further by creating some font and screen display routines.

FONTS –

Creates a 1 x 128 Matrix Table “CH” for storing the alpha characters.
Each element had the five alpha characters that are used to draw a Font Character to the screen.
Note: “CH” starts at 1 and not zero. So each Character is stored at one higher than its character code.
Label “99” is used.

DISPLAY –
Displays the Alpha Register onto the screen.
Upon entry, the Alpha Register contains the string to display and Register “P” contains a complex number which is the screen coordinate.
Labels 97 and 98 are used.
Register “00” is used for the ISG looping.
Registers 101 to 145 are used indirectly for storing the index value into the “CH” matrix array.
Note: SIZE must be set to at least 150.

I have created a sample program STRING that calls FONTS, then loops 15 times displaying the value of PI at various points on the screen.

NOTE: I used the DM42 decoder/encoder page to directly edit the byte codes for where the "append" character was in the string. I may also have edited other bytes (can't remember which ones) for some of the other special characters.

I tried to attach the "raw" files, but the forum says that file extension is not allowed. I likewise coundn't attach adobe or word documents.

Exactly what files ARE allowed to be attached?

Okay - I was able to add as attachments the Zipped up RAW files for FONTS, DISPLAY & STRING.



I would appreciate any comments, corrections, suggestions that you may have.

I would also like to think Thomas Okken for making FREE42 and sharing the source code where I obtained the Character Code font data: bigchars.

Hi,

I unzipped the three archives (using linux) and renamed the files like so

mv <filename>.raw g_<filename>.raw

to group them together on the flash listing later.

I save them to the flash, unmounted the device, unplugged the USB-plug.
The file were not listed by the DM42.
I again connected the DM42 via USB, mounted the device and listed
PROGRAMS....the programs were still there.

The complete list of programs:

(listed with 'ls -l' using zsh under Linux)

I then renamed the last files back to their original names (using lower case) -- they were still not listed by the DM42.
I uploaded one raw file as example back to the encoder page -- it was translated to TEXT without problems.

Then I saved a program, which was in RAM already to the flash -- this program was "saved successfully" -- but is
also not listed by the file browser.

I deleted some file and the remaining files are:

(I removed: Base.raw Calendar.raw SunBS001.raw bior001.raw bior2_00[123].raw days.raw psycho_00[123].raw )

After that, the previously listed files were listed again. It seems, the filebrowser can handle only a certain amount of files.
Since there is still plenty of flash memory left, when hitting that limit, I would appreciate to make more files listable. ;)

(What I am doing wrong here?) I now think, the filebrowser has a upper limit of listable files.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Meino,

I think your post should be moved to

"Usage tips, tricks and problem reports"

since your question is on how the File List works and not on my routines.
You would pro bally get a better response there to your question.

Did you get a chance to try the routines I provided and do you have any
comments/suggestions about them?

Thanks,

Bill

Bill,

I put a post with link and some explanations into "Usage tips, tricks and problem reports".

Currently my profession puts me "under fire" and I dont find much time for everything else.

Dear Meino,

you could/should ask the Administrator to move your post from ( mcc » 06 Feb 2018, 18:01 ) to your other thread.
In this thread it is mis-placed / off topic.

Thanks, Thomas

The limit of programs we can read and sort in one folder is 85.

Hi,

can I create subfolders under PROGRAMS, which then can be opened and read/written as well?

Given the capacity of the flash memory, a maximum of 85 entries seems pretty limiting. But an endless scrolling through even more than 85 looks cumbersome too. I think subfolders at least in the Programme folder would be nice for the users and a nice challenge for David ;)

There will be subfolders. No problem for David the magician!
