Migration Guide

From 13.7.x to 14.0.1

Front Panel

  • Fetch Front Panel Widgets 4.0.1 (it fetches by transitivity the UI Pack 14.0.1):

    <dependency org="ej.tool.frontpanel" name="widget" rev="4.0.1"/>
    
  • Re-organize imports of all Java classes (classes MicroUIImageFormat, MicroUIImage and MicroUIGraphicsContext have been extracted from LLUIPainter).

  • The doubleBufferFeature attribute has been removed from the Display widget. The bufferPolicyClass replaces it (see Buffer Refresh Strategy on the Simulator).

    <ej.fp.widget.Display x="0" y="0" width="480" height="272" bufferPolicyClass="ej.fp.widget.display.buffer.SwapDoubleBufferPolicy"/>
    
  • The FlushVisualizerDisplay widget has been merged with the Display widget. To use this functionality, use the Display widget instead of the FlushVisualizerDisplay widget in the Front Panel .fp file and set the option ej.fp.display.flushVisualizer=true in the options of the application launcher.

BSP Without GPU

  • [VEE Port configuration project]

  • [BSP project]

    • Delete the VEE Port include folder (often /platform/inc).

    • Delete the properties file cco_microui.properties.

    • In the C project configuration, include the new C files ui_display_brs.c, ui_display_brs_legacy.c, ui_display_brs_predraw.c, ui_display_brs_single.c and ui_rect_util.c.

    • Read the documentation about the display Buffer Refresh Strategy; then configure the C module by setting the right configuration in ui_display_brs_configuration.h.

    • Comment the line #error "This header must [...]".

    • The next actions depend on the available numbers of buffers allocated in the MCU memories and if the front buffer is mapped on an MCU’s buffer (if not, that means the LCD device owns a buffer). The following table redirects the next steps according to the display connection with the MCU:

      Copy and/or Swap actions
      Buffers Mapped Next Actions
      2 (1+1) no [Display “Copy”]
      2 yes [Display “Swap double buffer”]
      3 yes [Display “Swap triple buffer”]
      3 (2+1) no [Display “Transmit and Swap”]
  • [Display “Copy”]

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS: UI_DISPLAY_BRS_SINGLE.

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS_DRAWING_BUFFER_COUNT: 1.

    • Uncomment the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS_FLUSH_SINGLE_RECTANGLE.

      • Store (in a static field) the rectangle to flush (the array contains only one rectangle).
      • Store (in a static field) the flush identifier.
      • Unlock (immediately or wait for the LCD tearing signal interrupt) the flush task (hardware or software) that will transmit the back buffer data to the front buffer.
      • Remove the returned value (the back buffer address).
    • At the end of the flush (in an interrupt or at the end of the software flush task), replace the call to LLUI_DISPLAY_flushDone() with LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer(): it will unlock the Graphics Engine. Give the back buffer address (same address as at start-up) and the flush identifier.

  • [Display “Swap double buffer”]

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS: UI_DISPLAY_BRS_PREDRAW.

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS_DRAWING_BUFFER_COUNT: 2.

    • Change the signature and the implementation of the function flush: void LLUI_DISPLAY_IMPL_flush(MICROUI_GraphicsContext* gc, uint8_t flush_identifier, const ui_rect_t regions[], size_t length)

      • Remove the static fields ymin and ymax (now useless).
      • Remove the returned value (the back buffer address).
    • Case of hardware swap (LCD swap interrupt): change the implementation of the LCD swap interrupt:

      • Remove all the code concerning the post-flush restoration (remove the flush task or the use of a DMA). In both cases, the call to LLUI_DISPLAY_flushDone() is removed.
      • Unlock the Graphics Engine by calling LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer(), giving the new back buffer address and the flush identifier.
    • Case of software swap (dedicated swap task): change the task actions:

      • Swap back and front buffers.
      • Wait for the end of the buffers swap: ensure the LCD driver does not use the old front buffer anymore.
      • Remove all the code concerning the post-flush restoration (the call to memcpy or the use of a DMA). In both cases, the call to LLUI_DISPLAY_flushDone() is removed.
      • Unlock the Graphics Engine by calling LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer(), giving the new back buffer address and the flush identifier.
  • [Display “Swap triple buffer”]

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS: UI_DISPLAY_BRS_PREDRAW.

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS_DRAWING_BUFFER_COUNT: 3.

    • Change the signature and the implementation of the function flush: void LLUI_DISPLAY_IMPL_flush(MICROUI_GraphicsContext* gc, uint8_t flush_identifier, const ui_rect_t regions[], size_t length)

      • Store (in a static field) the back buffer address (LLUI_DISPLAY_getBufferAddress(&gc->image)).
      • Store (in a static field) the flush identifier.
      • Unlock (immediately or wait for the LCD tearing signal interrupt) the swap task that will swap the buffers.
      • Remove the static fields ymin and ymax (now useless).
      • Remove the returned value (the back buffer address).
    • In the swap task: change the task actions:

      • Swap buffers.
      • Remove all the code concerning the post-flush restoration (the call to memcpy or the use of a DMA). In both cases, the call to LLUI_DISPLAY_flushDone() is removed.
      • Unlock the Graphics Engine by calling LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer(), giving the new back buffer address and the flush identifier (the Graphics Engine can be unlocked immediately because a buffer is freed for sure).
      • Wait for the end of the buffers swap: ensure the LCD driver does not use the old front buffer anymore.
  • [Display “Transmit and Swap”]

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS: UI_DISPLAY_BRS_PREDRAW.

    • Set the value of the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS_DRAWING_BUFFER_COUNT: 2.

    • Uncomment the define UI_DISPLAY_BRS_FLUSH_SINGLE_RECTANGLE.

    • Change the signature and the implementation of the function flush: void LLUI_DISPLAY_IMPL_flush(MICROUI_GraphicsContext* gc, uint8_t flush_identifier, const ui_rect_t regions[], size_t length)

      • Store (in a static field) the rectangle to flush (the array contains only one rectangle).
      • Store (in a static field) the back buffer address (LLUI_DISPLAY_getBufferAddress(&gc->image)).
      • Store (in a static field) the flush identifier.
      • Unlock (immediately or wait for the LCD tearing signal interrupt) the transmit & swap task that will transmit the current back buffer data to the front buffer, and that will swap the back buffers.
      • Remove the returned value (the back buffer address).
    • In the transmit & swap task: change the “transmit & swap” actions:

      • Start the transmission of the current back buffer (called buffer A) data to the front buffer.

      • Swap back buffer A and back buffer B.

      • Wait for the end of the back buffers swap: ensure the LCD driver is now using the buffer A as the transmission buffer.

      • Remove all the code concerning to the post-flush restoration (the call to memcpy or the use of a DMA). In both cases, the call to LLUI_DISPLAY_flushDone() is removed.

      • Unlock the Graphics Engine by calling LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer(), giving the back buffer B address and the flush identifier.

      • Wait for the end of the transmission: ensure the LCD driver has finished to flush the data.

      • (optional) Unlock again the Graphics Engine by calling LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer(), giving the buffer A address and the flush identifier:

        • The call to LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer() returns false: that means at least one drawing has been performed in the buffer B; there is nothing else to do.
        • The call to LLUI_DISPLAY_setBackBuffer() returns true: that means no drawing has started yet in the buffer B. In that case, the Graphics Engine will reuse the buffer A as a back buffer, and the restoration of the past becomes useless. The back buffers swap is so canceled; update the LCD driver status in consequence.

  • ej.drawing.LLDWPainter

    • [Added] Equivalent of module com.microej.clibrary.llimpl#microui (LLDW_PAINTER_impl.c): implements all ej.api.drawing natives and redirect them to the interface DWDrawing.
    • [Added] setDrawer(DWDrawing): allows to configure the implementation of DWDrawing the LLDWPainter has to use. When no drawer is configured, LLDWPainter redirects all drawings to the internal Graphics Engine software algorithms.

  • Widget “led2states”:

    1. Rename led2states by ej.fp.widget.LED.
    2. Rename the attribute id by label.
  • Widget “pixelatedDisplay”:

    1. Rename pixelatedDisplay by ej.fp.widget.Display.
    2. Remove the attribute id.
    3. (if set) Remove the attribute initialColor if its value is 0
    4. (if set) Rename the attribute mask by filter; this image must have the same size in pixels than display itself (width * height).
    5. (if set) Rename the attribute realWidth by displayWidth.
    6. (if set) Rename the attribute realHeight by displayHeight.
    7. (if set) Rename the attribute transparencyLevel by alpha; change the value: newValue = 255 - oldValue.

    9. (if set) If extensionClass is specified: follow next notes.
  • Widget “pixelatedDisplay”: ej.fp.widget.Display Extension Class:

    1. Open the class
    2. Extends ej.fp.widget.MicroUIDisplay.AbstractDisplayExtension instead of com.is2t.microej.frontpanel.display.DisplayExtension.

    2. Implements the interface ej.fp.widget.Pointer.PointerListener instead of com.is2t.microej.frontpanel.input.listener.PointerListener.
  • Widget “push”:

    1. Rename push by ej.fp.widget.Button.
    2. Rename the attribute id by label.
    3. (if set) Review filter image: this image must have the same size in pixels than the button skin.
    4. (if set) Remove the attribute hotkey (not supported).
    5. Keep or remove the attribute listenerClass according next notes.
  • Widget “push”: ej.fp.widget.Button Listener Class:

    This extension class is useless if the implementation respects these rules:

    • (a) press method is sending a press MicroUI Buttons event with button label (equals to old button id) as button index.
    • (b) release method is sending a release MicroUI Buttons event with button label (equals to old button id) as button index.
    • (c ) The MicroUI Buttons event generator name is BUTTONS.

    If only (c ) is different:

    1. Open the listener class.
    2. Extends the class ej.fp.widget.Button.ButtonListenerToButtonEvents instead of implementing the interface com.is2t.microej.frontpanel.input.listener.ButtonListener.
    3. Overrides the method getMicroUIGeneratorTag().

    In all other cases:

    1. Open the listener class.
    2. Implements the interface ej.fp.widget.Button.ButtonListener instead of com.is2t.microej.frontpanel.input.listener.ButtonListener.
  • Widget “repeatPush”:

    1. Rename repeatPush by ej.fp.widget.RepeatButton.
    2. (if set) Remove the attribute sendPressRelease (not supported).
    3. Same rules than widget push.
  • Widget “longPush”:

    1. Rename longPush by ej.fp.widget.LongButton.
    2. Same rules than widget push.
  • Widget “joystick”:

    1. Rename joystick by ej.fp.widget.Joystick.
    2. Remove the attribute id.
    3. (if set) Rename the attribute mask by filter; this image must have the same size in pixels than joystick skin.
    4. (if set) Remove the attribute hotkeys (not supported).
    5. Keep or remove the attribute listenerClass according next notes.
  • Widget “joystick”: ej.fp.widget.Joystick Listener Class:

    This extension class is useless if the implementation respects these rules:

    • (a) press methods are sending some MicroUI Command events UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT and SELECT.
    • (b) repeat methods are sending same MicroUI Command events UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT and SELECT.
    • (c) release methods are sending nothing.
    • (d) The MicroUI Command event generator name is JOYSTICK.

    If only (d) is different:

    1. Open the listener class
    2. Extends the class ej.fp.widget.Joystick.JoystickListenerToCommandEvents instead of implementing the interface com.is2t.microej.frontpanel.input.listener.JoystickListener.
    3. Overrides the method getMicroUIGeneratorTag().

    In all other cases:

    1. Open the listener class.
    2. Implements the interface ej.fp.widget.Joystick.JoystickListener instead of com.is2t.microej.frontpanel.input.listener.JoystickListener.
