0.96" OLED I2C Display with XOD

#1

I want to experiment with a 0.96" OLED I2C Display (SSD1306) … I cannot find a separate component.

While typing this request I observed in the pop-up this has been discussed before (i.e bradzila84/highzl) … has this topic been completed ?

i made the mistake of grabbing one in a rush from the store because it was ironically the cheapest, back home… going through the addresses of the text lcd i2c node i scrolled through the datasheet http://www.upgradeindustries.com/media/ebay/Photos/OLED/datasheet.pdf
and almost suffocated in nervous laughter as things slowly dawned on me.
Would it be possible to at least have something that can spit out 2 lines or so?
Or should i toss the thing?

PS: I get panic attacks when i see code, thats is why i love xod so much.

The built-in text-lcd-* nodes are not going to do you any good. Search for LCD in the libraries (https://xod.io/libs/?q=lcd) and one of the tft libraries might work for you. Once you have a library name, install it from XOD using File > Add Library

Very good :clap:
As I said in another post, and another bitrex request, you need a node that allows you to copy and paste the bitmap, text or sequence in PROGMEM, in a simple way without editing the node.
I hope it is not difficult to implement

oh my god, it actually works…

its such an odd feeling when you dont expect it to work because you are use to it and then all of a sudden it lights up and i can even punch in text.

MAGIC! i feel like a kid again ty :slight_smile:
