Squareline project on RP2040 with GC9A01 Display -> only garbage after upload

Hello all!

Description

I’m trying to upload a screen (created with Squareline) to the Raspberry Pi Pico and show it on the GC9A01 display. After the upload the display shows only garbage.

What MCU/Processor/Board and compiler are you using?

RP2040 with Arduino framework on PlatformIO

What do you want to achieve?

I want to show the generated screen on the display.
Target

What have you tried so far?

Code to reproduce

Add the relevant code snippets here.
Code of Platformio.ini

The code block(s) should be between ```c and ``` tags:

[env:pico]
platform = raspberrypi
board = pico
framework = arduino
monitor_port = COM4
monitor_speed = 115200

lib_deps = 
	lvgl/lvgl@^8.3.6

Screenshot and/or video

If possible, add screenshots and/or videos about the current state.
Display shows me only garbage after the upload.

I’m a total noob with lvgl and hope someone can help me :slight_smile: to show the screen correct on the display.

Thanks a lot and best regards

Hello, I am having the same issue, did you manage to solve the issue?

Try check if work tft part ok add after orientation

tft.fillScreen(TFT_BLACK);
