#MCUFRIEND_kbv Library for Uno 2.4, 2.8, 3.5, 3.6, 3.95 inch mcufriend Shields

  1. The Arduino Library Manager should find and install MCUFRIEND_kbv library

  2. Install the Adafruit_GFX library if not already in your User libraries.

  3. Insert your Mcufriend style display shield into UNO. Only 28-pin shields are supported.

  4. Build any of the Examples from the File->Examples->Mcufriend_kbv menu. e.g.

graphictest_kbv.ino: shows all the methods.

LCD_ID_readreg.ino: diagnostic check to identify unsupported controllers.

MCUFRIEND_kbv inherits all the methods from the Adafruit_GFX class: and Print class:

The only "new" methods are hardware related: vertScroll(), readGRAM(), readPixel(), setAddrWindow(), pushColors(), readID(), begin()

readReg(), pushCommand() access the controller registers

The File layout changed with v2.9.3. If replacing a pre-v2.9.3 library: Please leave IDE. Delete the existing MCUFRIEND_kbv folder. Start the IDE. Install from Library Manager.

HOW TO INSTALL AND USE: is now in "mcufriend_how_to.txt"

CHANGE HISTORY: is now in "mcufriend_history.txt"
