Pros LittleVGL help

Good day fellow forum goers, i have been told that the lvgl library for pros can be used to make a custom gui for the vex v5 brain, i am having a bit of trouble figuring out how to use it and i was wondering if someone could post a sample program to show how the library works

I recommend downloading and installing the PC Simulator and use eclipse to re-write the demo program. It takes a little work to download the required apps but then the GUI can be written w/o the Brain. One thing to note is that the Brain has a status bar that takes up some of the screen.

If you do this you can pretty quickly see how to make many widgets and to see the power of LVGL. BTW, once cloned from github, the path to the demo is lv_examples/lv_apps/demo.

It is recommended to run PC Simulator under linux. Compiling under windows is too slow

on thanks for all of your help guys will try that out

Once you get that done, I or 3038922 (who has a slick gui) can probably answer more directed questions. I’m also trying convince the team’s gui programmer to publish his gui. He’s working on 3d-printing now and doesn’t want to spend any time supporting (answering questions) about code. I helped him figure out some styles weirdness so I’m almost competent.

that would be great thanks

ok so i have been trying to figure out how to run the pc simulator on windows but i just cant seem to get it to work, the steps on the lvgl website dont seem to work for me when i compile i get an error that says something like it cant find the path to a file called “make”

Professional programmers usually develop on LINUX. Almost all professional-level tutorials are for LINUX.

Are you using MINGW for your toolchain? If so you probably need to copy mingw32-make.exe to make.exe. This will be in a directory like C:\Program Files\mingw-w64\x86_64-8.1.0-win32-seh-rt_v6-rev0\mingw64\bin

To make from the GIT bash shell I had to manually add that path to the windows PATH.

If this doesn’t help please list all related programs you have installed.
