The Adafruit_GFX library for Arduino provides a common syntax and set of graphics functions for all of our TFT, LCD and OLED displays. This allows Arduino sketches to easily be adapted between display types with minimal fuss…and any new features, performance improvements and bug fixes will immediately apply across our complete offering of displays.

The GFX library is what lets you draw points, lines, rectangles, round-rects, triangles, text, etc.

Check out our detailed tutorial here It covers the latest and greatest of the GFX library!

Since this is a 'buffered' display, dont forget to call the "display()" object function whenever you want to update the OLED. The entire display is drawn in one data burst, so this way you can put down a bunch of graphics and display it all at once.
