MyLCD: Serially Connected LCD Character Display
I thought I would share a short video on the new revamped MyLCD plugin. This plugin takes advantage of a number of the new skinner friendly functions making plugin development very much easier. After all, if I can do it, anyone can ;)
You may want to view it a couple times so you can notice how the settings changes affect the LCD, and to see that changes are live (nearly instant).
Also notice the creative use of repeating the same display item so it always appears at the top of each "page" of information.
A lot of use of the framework DataSource functionality made this project pretty easy (thanks Boorte). A global datasource flag was used to arbitrate the radio and lcd com port scanning (auto detection) so there was no contention by testing the same port at the same time.
Datasource "subscriptions" allow for quick updating when a data value changes. Very slick.
