How to get text input on m5Paper and lockup issue in UIFlow both online and desktop.

  • How do I place a text filed or label where I can get input from the user. I'm using UIFlow with an M5Paper. Also most of the time when I upload my app it will display the UI items but if I add anther UI item and upload the app again the m5Paper locks up and the screen goes blank (white) and the only way to get it to respond is by running m5Burner. Any thoughts on that?

  • Hello @wwhite

    not sure I understand what you mean exactly - are you looking for an element which would take text input from the user? E.g. with an onscreen keyboard? I don't think that already exists, but I could be wrong about that.

    Regarding M5Paper locking up. Is your M5Paper connected to USB when this happens? If not, you might need to charge the battery. It takes about 2 hours to fully charge the battery. Unfortunately M5Paper doesn't have an accurate way to tell what the battery charge is.
