The TivaWare Graphics Library (grlib) offers a compact yet powerful collection of graphics functions which aid with the development of compelling user interfaces on small monochrome or color displays attached to TM4C microcontrollers. The grlib is included in all TivaWare firmware development packages supporting evaluation or development kits that include color displays or via add-on BoosterPack color displays. Latest TivaWare release for these kits can be downloaded from SW-TM4C.
Following installation of the TivaWare package, the graphics library source can be found in the C:\ti\TivaWare_C_Series-220.127.116.115\grlib directory (assuming the installation is in the default location) and various example applications using the library can be found in the below board specific directories:
Application examples for different kits are shown Table 3-1.
|fontview||All||This example displays the contents of a TivaWare graphics library
font on the DK board's LCD touchscreen. By default, the application
shows a test font containing ASCII, the Japanese Hiragana and Katakana
alphabets, and a group of Korean Hangul characters. If an SDCard is
installed and the root directory contains a file named font.bin, this
file is opened and used as the display font instead. In this case, the
graphics library font wrapper feature is used to access the font from
the file system rather than from internal memory.
The font used in this example contains ASCII, Hiragana, Katakana, Korean Jamo and a small number of Hangul syllables and Chinese ideographs. It is intended purely for illustration purposes and is unlikely to be of use in a real-world application.
|grlib_demo||All||This application provides a demonstration of the capabilities of the TivaWare Graphics Library using both primitives and widgets. A series of panels show different features of the library. As each panel is traversed, different capability is presented ranging from printing simple text to drawing primitives: lines, circles and different shapes to advanced widgets creating check box, container, push button, radio button and slider functions.|
|lang_demo||All||This application provides a demonstration of the capabilities of the
TivaWare Graphics Library's string table functions. Two panels show
different implementations of features of the string table functions. For
each panel, the bottom provides a forward and back button (when
The purpose of the string table and custom fonts is mainly for applications intending to display accented characters and Asian language ideographs. The font library containing the Asian language ideographs would be enormous for embedded applications. The string table and custom fonts allow only the needed characters for the application to be stored in a custom string table and fonts.
|scribble||All||The scribble pad provides a drawing area on the screen. Touching the screen will draw onto the drawing area using a selection of fundamental colors (in other words, the seven colors produced by the three color channels being either fully on or fully off). Each time the screen is touched to start a new drawing, the drawing area is erased and the next color is selected.|
|grlib_driver_test||dk-tm4c129x||This application provides a simple, command-line tool to aid in
debugging TivaWare Graphics Library display drivers.
The tool is driven via a command line interface provided on UART0. Configure the terminal emulator on your host system 115200bps, 8-N-1.
Commands allow a given low level graphics function to be executed with parameters provided by you.
Commands provide the ability to read and write arbitrary memory locations and registers, and tests displaying test patterns intended to exercise specific display driver functions.
|hello_widget||dk-tm4c129x||A very simple “hello world” example written using the TivaWare Graphics Library widgets. It displays a button which, when pressed, toggles display of the words “Hello World!'' on the screen. This may be used as a starting point for more complex widget-based applications.|
