UI without touch or pointer


Hello, I’m new to the LittlevGL, I just want to rise a question before a move much as I’m still evaluating the library.

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


What do you want to achieve?

Is possible to use the UI without a touch screen or mouse pointer?
Can I use push button to assign to a button on the GUI?

With the text entry widget, can I use some external source (eg push button, rotary encoder,…) to navigate/jump between letters?

Or there is any other mechanism to text entry to use without a touch/pointer?

What have you tried so far?

Nothing, I’m new to the library.

The touchcscreen is only one of the supported input methods. Check out the types of input devices on the website for a complete list of the supported methods. Buttons, keypads, keyboards and encoders are indeed supported.

I haven’t used these other methods myself, but there are examples that demonstrate these on github.
