Embed Control developer version for controlling and monitoring Arduino

By dave on May 25, 2022

There are two versions of Embed Control 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 a user-centric Embed Control packaged for App Stores and available from the App Store for that platform. This version will also support mobile devices running iOS and Android soon.

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 allows you to control tcMenu based applications using either a mobile phone or desktop computer. is gradually being made available on the App Store, in a lighter user-centric form more suited to end users and mobile device use. It uses the same forms as the full desktop developer version and has at least as good connectivity. Available already on the Windows Store, and a BETA/RC is available for all Apple devices.

Generating Form Layouts for use with Embed Control

By dave on December 4, 2023

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.

tcMenu Designer UWP and MacOS - 2.x releases

By system on February 5, 2021

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.
