Spencer animation creation

Hi all,

I try to make an animation with firstname blinking as the Horoscope animation but if I use two print block one after the other only the last one appears.
Dp you have any example or doc to follow to understand where I am wrong?


The animations in CircuitBlocks are updated in the “Arduino loop forever” block part.

If you want to write something after an animation is over, you can wait for it to finish, then stop it with the “stop animation” block, and then write whatever you want on the display.

We’re planning to add a "when animation is finished, do this: " block in the future, but this code should work just fine.

Place this file Horoscope.zip (4.8 KB) in Documents/CircuitBlocks if you’re using windows. After that, you should be able to open it from CircuitBlocks.

I hope this helps you!

Thanks for your return.

I do not want to write after an animation.
I want to do like the animation Horoscope, show firstname letter by letter because the firstname does not feet the screen and I cannot redefine letter format.


I’m sorry for misunderstanding your issue.

So if I’m not mistaken, you need to show a name on the display and it doesn’t fit on the screen?

In that case, you could try scrolling the name like this

    void loop(){
    	for(int x = 0; x < 30; x++){
    		LEDmatrix.drawString(x, 0, "firstName", 255);
