@peekay123, I am using hardware SPI. For the touch, I used Utouch library with four pins. I tied the LED to 3V, I can free up RST if I need a control pin, right now its tied to A0.
Strange, I just used dot factory to convert the " !"#$%&’()*+,-./0123456789", modified the start and end char as 0x20, 0x39, tft.print(“1. 31 1”); show up as 1.311 but no space.
Great, thanks for all the help!
