Display Page Controller Element

The display page controller element is used to control navigation and interactivity for any pages within the hardware’s display. The display page controller is required in order to enable the display to navigate between pages, which is accomplished through connecting either a Semtech SX9500 element (NXP Rapid IoT’s touch sensor buttons) and/or user button element to it. This element is only available within NXP Rapid IoT projects.

The display page controller element is located in the Element Toolbox within Studio’s Embedded View.

The display page controller element is part of a series of embedded elements working in tandem to create Rapid IoT display pages and their navigation and interaction. Unlike other elements, properties of these elements (such as their x- and y-coordinate placements) affect other such elements. To learn more about using NXP display-based embedded elements and how they work together, visit the NXP Display Elements Guide.
