I'm not sure I understood why we have 2 plugins (036 in the official repository and 205 in the playgournd) which are supposed to be just one!
the 036 sems to be a simpler versione with no commands to update text, while 205 is outdated (since 1 year) but a quick look at the code seems to have more functionality including ability to send CMD to update text lines via rules (for example!)...

can someone clarify this?
why the 205 is not the official plugin as it contains more features?
As I understood the devs, it has to do with the writing to the Flash after each changing of text, which will reduce lifetime of it.

oh boy, looks like the oled-device itself should not be named oled at least with my setup, when using another name normal function is back -> and do not use V. 2 dev versions, as devs removed string upload feature to the 12 lines for some reasons. Up to v. 148 framed oled works.
is there any update about this for the V.2 version?

Why not use the more recent Mega builds?
Please wait for the 20180430 build, because there are quite some wifi fixes included.

• Wemos D1 Mini with OLED Shield (64x48) SSD1306.
• Flashed with: ESP_Easy_mega-20181031_dev_ESP8266_4096.bin

Is there a way to set the LCD dimensions with the framed OLED display device like for the non-framed one?

Very cool functionality!

According to send string text to an oled Display. Isn't it possible to set variables that translate the value of mqtt.
E.g. if Window state=0 set variable %Window to closed?

I'm new in using an esp8266 but maybe this works?!?

According to post #44 in this thread, no. Maybe with a dummy device or a rule, MAYBE, but if you are using Node-Red it is fairly easy, probably some others as well.
Pretty sure this has been discussed in the forum, no idea where, probably in one of the displays. Check the Wiki first, rules and different display plugins, then start reading the forums.

Hi folks, I am new in ESP Easy world and tried my best to send text message to my scrolled OLED Display. I read the hole thread and did it as described but without success ...
I named my OLED display and send: http://192.168.1.95/control?cmd=display,off or http://192.168.1.95/control?cmd=display,1,test
I got always the message in browser: Unknown or restricted command!
I deleted my admin password ... no change ... I am closed to jump out of the windows ...
Could someone of the experts here push me in the right direction ?
Any advice or help is highly appreciated ... Tank you in advance.

OLED framed? If so no such command exists. You need to use the basic OLED plugin for that... Will change in the future but not now.

@grovkillen and what does ist mean in this post ? http://www.letscontrolit.com/forum/view ... 8445#p8445

"You can send the command using either http or mqtt or even via the webserver. To use mqtt, you should publish to the normal subscription topic of your esp followed by /cmd - e.g. /ESP01/cmd"

May I ask a other question? If I configure the normal OLED I have four dots on the bottom on the display (like in scrolling OLED) and on the configuration site a "Intervall" setting ... why? nothing scrolls
Ans I can add only 6 differend lines .. line 7 starts again on line 3, line 8 on line 4 and so on ... why?

Sorry for all the questions ... but I am new in this area ....

I use the version: mega-20190212

I attached a foto where you can see the dots ...

That must be left overs from the OLED framed plugin?

I updated to 20190215 .. deleted the framed device now ... reset ESP ... same dots ... (now three ... with three blue lines)

Unfortunately no answer regarding the cmd command for OLED framed and the post that I linked.

ok, it seams is a bug ... after a factory reset and no new OLED framed the dots are gone ... maybe is worth to open a issue ...

I remember that after v.2 the scrolling OLED devices function wasn´t the same as introduced by Namirda.
see: http://www.letscontrolit.com/forum/view ... =50#p17390
since then I still use version 1.8 with the scrolling oled plugin for this special purpose
but definitely at that time commands like that one below were known and worked fine.
