TCPmaker : Visual Tour    Sending Messages to Screen Controls  

This is what the "Any Control" page looks like before any buttons are pressed on the demo board.  It contains a Horizontal Slider control, an LED indicator, and a Horizontal Gauge.

This page demonstrates the following Control Message API functions:

mtSet_x() - Move a control in x direction only
mtSet_rotation() - Rotate a control
mtSet_alpha() - Change transparency of a control
mtSetColorIndex() - Set the cx (i.e, the one and only) color index for controls Hs, Bx, C1

Compare the screen shot below with the appearance of these controls after some buttons have been pushed on the demo board, as shown on the next page of this tutorial.
