Serial libraries

The serial libraries allow to print the screen on a serial console as an image or a pixmap table to be used as a header file.

The header file needs to be included into an application at build-time and displayed at the next run-time.

To summarise,

Method Image print Pixmap print
Screens Fast Fast
Save on Serial console Serial console
Save as Image structure Pixmap table
Generated at Run-time Run-time
Read from Header file Header file
Included at Build-time Build-time

The header file on serial console library is available on the advanced and commercial editions.

Configure

No configuration is required, as the output is the default serial console.

Select one of the three options for the file library:

  • Print screen content to the serial console at run-time on an SD-card to be included in an application at build-time.

  • Print screen content as portable pixmap as header files at run-time on an SD-card to be included in an application at build-time; and
