Bitmap2LCD is a tool for programming small Graphic LCDs in embedded systems and a programmable graphic and text processing tool.

Bitmap2LCD : Console Application / Command Line Mode

This feature has not been released yet !

From version X.XX Bitmap2LCD is designed to be started as console application (Win32 Console).  If started with one or more parameters in the command line, for example “bitmap2lcd.exe parameter1 parameter2” the program automatically enters in console application mode at start instead of entering in normal Graphical User Interface (GUI) mode.

This console application mode allows the integration of bitmap2LCD services in host programs, bitmap2lcd tasks being called with for example functions of Windows API like ShellExecute or CreateProcess.

>> Bitmap2LCD program is started by the host program, defined process is executed and finally program is closed. A report text file is optionally generated.

The console application mode is entered by calling a graphical or text processing batch as first command line parameter : This batch contains the change of settings and the task(s) to process.

Command Line Example : Bitmap2LCD.exe convertgraphic example.bmp /r

convertgraphic is a Graphic Processing Batch File : ConvertGraphic.SIP

/r : Enables creating of a processing report (text file)

A Console Application Test Mode is available in the Mode Main menu.
