Text Area as Serial console


A feedback mechanism using the Text Area as serial console.

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


What do you want to achieve?

I would like to give a user feedback using a text area as a serial console. Its a way of telling the user if the command he sent went ok or processed with error.

What have you tried so far?

none yet. just wants a heads up or soe suggestion how to implement it.

Code to reproduce

The code block(s) should be formatted like:

/*You code here*/

Screenshot and/or video

Did you check the terminal example in the lvgvl examples?


looks like the examples have moved, the link is 404.

The example that was linked to isn’t available for v7 or v8.

Is there another way of doing this with v7?
I would like to print incoming data into a large portion of the screen and be able to scroll through it, perhaps clear the content by clicking on a button.
