TCPmaker : Visual Tour    Sending Messages to Screen Controls  

The screen shot below shows the initial appearance of the controls on the "Btns, LEDs" page.  

Note that the button labeled "Home" is a navigation button: when pressed, it causes the browser to display the Text page, which is the index or "Home" page of our content. 

This page demonstrates the following Control Message API functions:

mtSetButtonMode() - Set the operating mode for a button
mtSetColorIndices() - Set the color indices for a control
mtSetButtonGoToPage() - Set the "GoTo" page (g property) of a Pb button control

Compare this to the appearance of these controls after some buttons on the demo board have been pushed, shown on the next page of this tutorial.
