Hay,
I would like to ask, if it is possible to use the OLEDs LCD Screens (like "https://www.google.com/search?q=I2C+OLED+Display+Module+0.91+Inch+I2C+SSD1306+OLED+Display+Module+White+I2C+OLED+Screen+Driver+DC+3.3V~5V+for+Arduino&sxsrf=ACYBGNSXs3GW3uR3rALhh1RaHq_1nvBwdA:1575650266095&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiAgprTuqHmAhXSJFAKHYNxBQwQ_AUoAXoECAsQAw&biw=1680&bih=907")?

I would like to use it for my A320 FCU (and maybe both of the EFIS Panels too). The problem is, that I can use in MobiFlight just the normal LCD Screens where every line have the same height. But I would like to do it like the real one (on the top a little text which goes on and of and under them the normal numbers like the 7 Segment...)

with best regards

Hi
I use one of these for my annunciator with mega visual studio

"https://www.banggood.com/Nextion-NX3224T024-2_4-Inch-Man-machine-Interface-HMI-Screen-Kernel-In-English-p-1105052.html?rmmds=myorder&cur_warehouse=CN"

I did not use mobiflight on mine but it would be virtually the same. The Nextion helps a lot with the design of the graphics on the screen.

oops sorry I forgot. I dont think mobiflight supports the screen which is why I used winforms in visual studio.
It was a thought any way.

would be nice if it is possible to make a feature to control OLEDs LCD Screens like those which I had linked or the other type of them...

These devices look cool but the flexibility is really high. I am not sure how to integrate such a screen with MobiFlight- should MobiFlight come with predefined screen templates or would you want to control every pixel?
Have a great day!

Hay,
I think it would be nice if it is possible to realize the A320 FCU & EFIS, etc.. maybe some templates for A320 FCU/etc, Boeing Annuciators/etc , and so on. And maybe that it is possible to create own templates... but i don´t know how much is possible...
but it would be nice to use them with mobiflight xD

with best regards

I am currently building an A320 cockpit and it would be a great help to have more choice for the LCD / LED hardware displays. (even an i2c 4 digit LED!) I know that it would be tricky to fulfil all possible wishes, but a basic 4 / 6 digit 1306 driver for 0,91in & 0.96in displays would be a good start. I have built this with native Arduino and it looks great. (although physical size is a bit of a challenge)
