octagonal user interface

    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.
