Code Example

MicroGraphics graphics;

public override Task Initialize()
{
Resolver.Log.Info("Initialize ...");

var display = new Il91874V03(
spiBus: Device.CreateSpiBus(),
chipSelectPin: Device.Pins.D02,
dcPin: Device.Pins.D01,
resetPin: Device.Pins.D00,
busyPin: Device.Pins.D03,
width: 176,
height: 264);

graphics = new MicroGraphics(display);

return base.Initialize();
}

public override Task Run()
{
graphics.DrawRectangle(1, 1, 126, 32, Meadow.Foundation.Color.Red, false);

graphics.CurrentFont = new Font8x12();
graphics.DrawText(2, 2, "IL91874V03", Meadow.Foundation.Color.Black);
graphics.DrawText(2, 20, "Meadow F7", Meadow.Foundation.Color.Black);

graphics.Show();

return Task.CompletedTask;
