Have just received a (genuine) Nextion Intelligent Series NX8048P070-011C (800x480, 7", capacitive) and am trying an existing app for a Nextion Advanced Series NX8048K050 (800x480, 5", resistive)
Loaded my LTS editor app into Editor 0.58, fixed an unrelated issue (seems that string variables cannot start with “$” in 0.58?), compiled OK, played with debug OK, copied .tft file to SD-Card and updated display via SD-Card - all OK.
First, easy, observation on the real screen is that my buttons with a .pic attribute set to a say 89x89 .png containing a circle, don’t look round - they are stretched horizontally.
On further investigation, 800 pixels x 480 pixels is an aspect ratio of 1.666, but the measured visible display area is ~154mm x ~85.2mm which is an aspect ratio of 1.807 - hence the horizontal stretching and the potential conclusion that the 7" Intelligent series doesn’t have square pixels. Which is a bit (a lot) of a problem when trying to draw/display circles…
…or in fact when trying to draw/display just about anything
In “debug mode” in Editor 0.58 everything is drawn round, as expected.
Any ideas please?
