Display issues with Special character
« on: April 17, 2018, 06:17:43 AM »

I'm using the MikroC compiler to program a FT90x and FT812 display.
When I write the following to the display "°C", the display severely breaks up with missing text/boxes and squiggly lines displayed. The issue is the "°" degree symbol. If I leave this out, the display works perfectly. If I write "DegC" it works perfectly (point being that it is not a string size issue).
Is there an issue with the FT812 displaying special characters?


P.S. Does every post have to be approved by a moderator?

Could you provide further information about how you created the degree symbol and how you use it in your code.

Did you create a custom font containing the ASCII character set plus some special symbols such as degrees?

You can also send any code or details to our support address below if you prefer
