Nearly every feature of MakerPlot-J may be controlled through serial data, from basic plotting to configuring controls to creating an entire interface. Below are some examples to test with. This data may come from a control’s event code, the Debug/CLI Window or from the controller.

These examples use Arduino coding to demonstrate operations from the controller side but can be adapted for nearly any other microcontroller.

All strings must end in a Carriage Return (ASCII 13) or Line Feed (ASCII 10).

The Menu, Folder –> Code contains code examples for the following microcontrollers:

  • Arduino (Uno)
  • Parallax Propeller 2
