Smile Newbie Question : Draw Graphics on Hanlin v3 Display

Hello,

I'm trying to write a program (.exe.fb2) that draws graphics on Hanlin v3 display. I'm just wondering how I can set pixel on such display so that I can draw circles, lines, and shapes. Are there any libraries or documentations available?

Thank You Very Much

Thank you for your reply.

If I cannot set pixel of eBooks, are there any other ways to write a program that put graphics on Hanlin V3 display. Currency, I was able to write a simple C program (.exe.fb2) that runs on Hanlin V3 device. However, I cannot find any ways to mess around with the display.

Thank You Very Much

biodiesel,

I haven't done any programming in years (and never for eInk), but I think if you define your page/screen size you should be able use X and Y coordinates to draw simple graphics on-screen. I don't how complex your desired graphics need to be, but I think the Hanlin should have no problem with simple (geometric) graphics.

I'm currently trying to study most of the open source applications that have draw graphics implementation.

biodeisel,

Take a look at the code for the iRex iLiad and DR1000S; using a stylus, they write directly to the ePaper screen. Keep in mind that ePaper/eInk is not pixel based like CRT/LCD. The iRex forum is here.

I can't help wondering what on Earth it is that you are trying to do.

Have fun, and good luck!

Edit:

I’m reaching back some 30 years (when I was getting my kids into computing), but the LOGO language might afford you some simple (considering the limits of the processor and that your input will be limited to 8 menu/button choices) but impressive graphics. Coupled with you might learn from the iRex stuff, this might be right for you. A Linux version can be found here: UCBLogo.
