Visual GLCD is a standalone application used for rapid development of graphical user interfaces for graphic LCD. The software generates code compatible with MikroElektronika compilers, for the following architectures: PIC, dsPIC, PIC32, ARM and AVR. The software also implements an intuitive environment and many drag-n-drop components which can be used for building applications quickly.
You will love Visual GLCD!
We in MikroElektronika always try to save your development time by making the hard work automatized and offering hardware and software that work in harmony. When we were in the process of writing GLCD libraries, we figured that it was taking too much time to build high-quality graphical applications, and that the most of the process is not so flexible and intuitive. That’s why we began to work on a project to build a rapid development application in the form of a graphical vector editor where anyone can easily create complex and fully functional GLCD GUIs with just a few clicks. We now present you with the Visual GLCD - the first software of this kind, where you can enjoy designing GLCD applications without worrying about the code.
As easy as drag-n-drop
The Visual GLCD drag-n-drop development environment enables you to spend less time programming, allowing you to focus on functionality and design. Grab the object you need and simply drag it to the location of your choice. Move things around until you are satisfied.
Advanced touch control
Introducing touch-screen input with GUI in your device, will open a whole new potential for user’s interactive participation. Visual GLCD implements functionalities that empower you to handle touch inputs easily. Navigate the screen faster, do more than before.
Supported controllers and display sizes
Visual GLCD supports the most common GLCD controllers and display sizes. See the table below for more information.
The following microcontrollers can be controlled over SPI as well: KS0108, S6B0108, NT7108C, T6963C, RA6963.
Nobody likes complicated settings and options at the beginning of each project. With new hardware templates, single click on a dropdown list item does all the work for you. Everything will be automatically set.
The interface is simple to use, you'll feel like you are using any other vector graphic editors.
We’ve mixed functionalities from the both worlds: the world of design and the world of programming. There are several palettes of the most useful components that you can use in your application.
Just drag a component into a pixel grid display screen and it will be drawn instantly. Use the Object Inspector to edit component properties and to assign desired events.
Do you need more space for your images and fonts? Do you want to create image slideshows, or to even play a video from MMC/SD Card? With new Resource file feature, Visual GLCD software brings you all this and much more. If this option is selected, after code generation, Visual GLCD will store all of your images and fonts in the resource file and will optimize them as much as possible for faster utilization. You just have to copy that file onto your MMC/SD card and you are ready to go.
Code and design in one place
Visual GLCD supports a wide range of development boards from MikroElektronika, so you’ll have all the hardware you need to get started. Each board has a hardware pattern, a configuration template with hardware connections for GLCD and touch-screen so you can achieve all the necessary settings with a single click.
Design fantastic GUIs for SmartGLCD in Visual GLCD software with ease. Even if you are a total beginner, you’ll be able to create amazing applications. After you’re finished with the design, there’s no need to worry about the code - source code generated by Visual GLCD will be integrated smoothly into your favourite MikroElektronika compiler.
The perfect companion for Visual GLCD is the SmartGLCD 240x128, a full-featured board for easy development of embedded graphical application using PIC18F87FK22 microcontroller.
