Can you upload a full dump from the a540 please.I only have a short one.
It would be good to get some testing on VxWorks cameras before committing this to SVN.
Note: the updated finsig_works finds a lot more of the event procs, which also changes some of the existing values - most noticeably GetCurrentAvValue. I checked on a couple of cameras where this value has changed and the new value looks correct.
Quote from: philmoz on 24 / October / 2013, 08:39:40It would be good to get some testing on VxWorks cameras before committing this to SVN.I'll try that. Is there a simple script to test this (I guess it should prove that the method works AND the camera can then continue to work normally)?
--[[@title Display On/Off Test--]]sleep(2000)set_lcd_display(0)sleep(2000)set_lcd_display(1)console_redraw()
updated script:Code: [Select]--[[@title Display On/Off Test--]]sleep(2000)set_lcd_display(0)sleep(2000)set_lcd_display(1)console_redraw()Tried the following cams: a410, a460, ixus65_sd630, s80. Works on all, bitmap overlay disappears when the display comes back on (as described in the first post). No other side effects noticed.
On my (DryOS) cameras the DISP button cycles through various display modes:- display off- display on, no bitmap- display on, bitmap overlayI wonder if it's something like this, where the display comes back on; but the bitmap overlay is off.Perhaps calling set_lcd_display(1) twice might re-enable the bitmap.
- the bitmap ui overlay (both chdk and canon) may not display after turning on, until you do something that causes the canon firmware to refresh it.
Probably better to maintain the pattern - I'll add it as 'set_lcd_display'.
It been almost two months, so I think its safe to suggest / request that set_lcd_display() get added to 1.2.0? I know that's not strictly according our release guidelines, but as I continue to update some of the better, camera-agnostic scripts, it would be nice to swap out the set_backlight() function for this. Turning off the display is probably the #1 newbie request on this forum after they figure out how to get CHDK running in the first place.If philmoz is busy, I can make a patch pretty quickly.
