octagonal user interface

November 3, 2008 | 11:13 pm

dear all, i am trying to create an octagonal user interface. 8 sides in which the dial moves around the outside going from 0 127 on each side.
i have no idea where to start. i presume something like the jsui object but learning javascript seems to be a total headache.

please could i have some help.

thanks
Paul

you could design a dial or pictctrl where you draw each frame individually… bit of a pain, but probably faster than jsui for a simple dial.

I would recommend the LCD object. It’s very versatile for simple graphics, and you don’t have to learn javascript. For instance, you can have it draw a background (or import an image) and then for the moving parts use sprites, which don’t erase the background when they are moved around.
