Degree symbol
« on: October 16, 2020, 10:55:59 AM »

Hi guys

Do you know what is the best way to print the degree symbol ( ยบ ) an another special characters using FT813? I'm programming using Keil and stm32. I've tried to introduce the ascii code-176 but it doesn't work..

Thank you so much

One way is to create custom font characters with these special characters added.

When used individually, font characters are similar to bitmap images and can be displayed with a vertex command but if you want to use the characters within text strings of standard characters, you can also use the techniques shown in this draft application note below. It is built on the simple PIC framework from BRT_AN_008  but the same technique also works on other MCUs.

Here are the links to the draft document and the beta code,
