New NextionDriver functionality (dec 2018)

  • refreshfield command : refresh all fields when switching to a page
    • when you manually switch to a page, set the command in the initialize event, then  the most recent fields will immediately be sent to the display by NextionDriver
  • 'last head' page : last (max) 20 heard users
    • give the LH command in the initialize event, and the NextionDriver will send the requested number of last heard users
  • display sleep function: save backlight lifetime
  • 'stop processing MMDVMHost commands to display' setting
    • to switch to own screenswithout MMDVMHost switching back to another screen, i.e. :
      • go to own system settings
      • stop MMDVMHost or shutdown or reboot even when a QSO is in place
  • update display with .tft file
    • update display without stopping MMDVMHost
