Graphics Test

We have a library with example code ready to go for use with these TFTs. The library is not incredibly fast and optimized but its a good start and can easily be ported to other micrcontrollers. However, we'll assume you're using an Arduino.

Our github repository contains all the code and examples you'll need for driving the TFT. You can download the latest ZIP by clicking the button below
Uncompress the folder and rename it Adafruit_ILI9341 make sure that inside that folder is the Adafruit_ILI9341.cpp and Adafruit_ILI9341.h files. Then copy it to your arduinosketchfolder/libraries folder. For more details, especially for first-time library installers, check out our great tutorial at http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-all-about-arduino-libraries-install-use

You're not done yet! You will also need to get the Adafruit GFX graphics core - this is the general purpose graphics drawing library (the ILI9341 library just handles the low level stuff). Click this button to grab it if you don't have it yet
Uncompress the folder and rename it Adafruit_GFX make sure that inside that folder is the cpp and .h files. Then copy it to your arduinosketchfolder/libraries folder like before
Restart the Arduino software. You should see a new example folder called Adafruit_ILI9341 and inside, an example called graphicstest. Upload that sketch to your Arduino! You should see a collection of graphical tests draw out on the TFT.
