Four letter phat question


#1

Hi probably a stupid question but can you scroll text on the four letter phat? Have searched but cannot find the answer. Many thanks in advance.

You can, but you’d need to do it manually.

You could accomplish it by popping the first character from your string and appending it to the end, then displaying a 4 character window from that string.

Something like:

fourletterphat.print_str(my_string[:4])
my_string = my_string[1:] + my_string[:1]

Then just keep shiftin’ and updating :D

Thanks reason i asked was to see if it could be used as an rss feed or twitter feed
