There are two versions of EmbedCONTROL desktop UI, the first is built into TcMenu Designer and is aimed at developers and more advanced users that fully understand the menu tree, and may want to create customize views. The second version is user centric and available from the App Store for that platform. This version will also support mobile devices running iOS and Android soon. TcMenu Designer runs on most desktop systems and can monitor and control embedded devices that are running tcMenu software over Serial or LAN connections.
Instead of the desktop version, on Raspberry PIs you can serve a React.JS based single page web application that needs no installation. It works on a wide range of mobile phones, desktop and tablet devices. It is not supported in the Arduino or mbed environment directly at the moment. Using the deployed app To open the app, simply browse to the device on the configured host and port. For example if the device were 192.
Embed Control can load layouts that have been generated in tcMenu Designer. These layouts provide more control over the mobile layout than what is possible using the Auto UI. Either the user-centric or tcMenu Designer based UI can load forms, but only tcMenu Designer can create them. How does Embed Control show menu items? A form layout is nothing more than a grid of drawing instructions, and you can select the number of columns in the grid, along with the layout name and a few common options.
Summary Please see GitHub for the ongoing work, this only shows historic work. Projects that have been compeleted in Q1/2 of 2021. All releases use the name of a popular LP / album. See the Product roadmap for current projects Sprint: There’s a new dawn (The New Dawn) Status Est Project Task Done testing Fully test tcMenu 2.1 UI with 2.0 libraries to ensure all new features are working, and high compatibility Done website Document the changes in the interfaces for 2.
Current status, TcMenu Designer 2.1.x is the current stream, the 2.0 library and plugins will be released soon. At this point 1.7 will become previous, and 2.0 current. All menus we’ve tested have transitioned without any issues. The main changes: All graphical classes moved into the “graphics” directory, so for example GfxMenuConfig.h is now graphics/GfxMenuConfig.h. Most of the graphical code is now in a namespace, you may need using namespace tcgfx; in your code, although the library takes care of backward compatibility for most.
Release 1.7.12 (download version 13) Windows 10 Full testing completed Ensure that save adds to the recent list immediately Release 1.7.11 Windows 10 BETA Automated testing has been added during the release cycle, tests complete menu creation flow. Very minor formatting and display bugs have been fixed. This will probably become the next Windows Store seed. Release 1.7.10 Windows 10 BETA Refactored the tree view to be more like the MacOS and Java version.
Summary Please see GitHub for the ongoing work, this only shows historic work. Projects that have been compeleted in Q3 of 2020. All releases use the name of a popular LP / album. See the Product roadmap for current projects Emergency changes to Windows designer to restore stability (Completed 23/12/2020) Next sprint abandoned while we restore stability to the windows tcMenu designer application and make it possible to download and use all current patch releases of the software.
