TCPmaker : Visual Tour    Sending Messages to Screen Controls  

On each of the 5 pages of our PC browser content, you are directed to press the pushbuttons on the demo board to cause the PIC code to call Control Message API functions to command the controls on the PC browser to change their appearance.

For instance, the picture below shows the first ("Text") page, before we press any buttons on the demo board.  This page mainly demonstrates the Control Message API functions in the Text category:

- Set the color of a Tx text display
mtSetTextRom() - Set the text of a control
mtSetTextSize() - Set the size of text on the Tx text display

It also demonstrates:

mtSet_rotation() - Rotate a control

Compare this to the screen shot on the next page of this tutorial, after some buttons have been pushed.
