    • Viewports with scroll, auto-wrap and auto-alignment.
    • Tabs and column alignment support.
    • Selectable fonts and alignment styles.
    • Comprensive, easy-to-use function interface. The powerful feature set enable creation of any GUI style.
    • Use relative coordinate set. Create adaptable layouts. Design your own reuseable GUI functions.
  • Graphic drawing
    • Graphic line drawing and pixel setting.
    • Graphic Rectangle and Block drawing.
    • Black-on-White, White-on-Black.
    • Graphic buffer Cut and Paste.

    • Support for anti-aliased fonts
    • Support for transparent text and graphic.
  • Low processor memory consumption
    • Library is designed for use with embedded processors. Small memory footprint. Heap memory not required.
    • Can operate directly on internal video buffer in the display controller chip. No need for a graphic video buffer in processor RAM.
    • Selectable use of direct video memory I/O, or fast delayed update via RAM buffer.
    • Full support for Virtual Fonts, icons, and pictures stored in external memory devices. An easy way to handle large fonts and graphic objects with minimum processor memory consumption.
