Bitmap2LCD : Batch Programming
A batch program is a set of conditions, functions etc… one per line.
The program can’t be edited directly by writing texts. Any action must be made inside the field indicated by the red and green arrows. Cursor is a highlighted line. Cursor moves are made using keyboard up and down keys or by clicking on the destination program line.
- Use the tabs to browse the group of basic functions ( Blue arrow )
- Use the Comboboxes to select and program the condition/setting or function. ( red arrows ) In the Edit Mode, insert the selected function as next to the current cursor position with return key.
- Use the Edit fields ( green arrow ) to edit a constant like an index (numeric), a text (chars) or a comment (chars)
- Call the pop-up menu ( purple arrow ) by clicking the right mouse key inside the white program field.
