Default Programming LED screens using VB.NET


Hi Guys,

for a test project that i'm doing i am looking for ways to program a LED screen. I ordered a few LED screens (320x160) that can be connected together). Using a special controlcard the whole thing can then display text etc. Using the software that a Chinese supplier gave me.

All the above works fine. But I am depending on the software I have. I have
VB.Net experience and I would like to put the software aside and write my own software. I would like to set up the COM connection and tell what LED to activate.

Problem i'm facing is that the chinese cannot provide me good use of the software dll files. I need a small Vb.net program that does the above. Would somebody be able to figure out how to do this.

The program is 9 mb so I cannot add this but please reply if you have any ideas?

Regards

Sven

When you say that the LED screens are 320x160 you are off by a factor of 10 in each direction as far as the count of LEDs goes. From the pictures you supplied these appear to be 32x16 LED displays.

Looking at the screenshot of the supplied software that you showed it looks like that the communications to the controller is via a Serial Com port. If this is indeed the case then you will have to figure out what the serial port protocol is to talk to the controller and then use the Serial Port class in VB to talk to the display.
