HMI Display

Post by G6FJA » Sat Jan 09, 2021 10:56 am

I have a nextion 4.3 screen and I have not been able to find a HMI layout for it. Would it be possible to convert a 5.0 layout to 4.3 . If so any guides to do this would be appreciated.
Regards
Fred

Yes, it is possible, but worth it in my opinion no.

Sorry but there aren't any guides.

The problem is in order to downsize it, you have to rescale everything manually. That is going to take an serious amount of time. In my opinion it would take more time to rescale everything than if you were to just start with a completely blank slate and recreate every field from scratch.

Plus downsizing graphics is going to lower the image quality, so really in order for it to look the best the graphics need to be created from scratch at the 480×272 size.

I would just use PD0DIB's:

There are also a number of them at the Nextion Facebook group for 4.3's.
