Library

The TFT library? , which handles text, shape and image drawing to the screen, extends the Adafruit GFX, and Adafruit ST7735 libraries. The GFX library is responsible for the drawing routines, while the ST7735 library is specific to the screen controller for the Arduino GTFT. The Arduino specific additions were designed to work as similarly to the Processing API as possible.

Library

The Arduino TFT library extends the Adafruit GFX, and Adafruit ST7735 libraries that it is based on. The GFX library is responsible for the drawing routines, while the ST7735 library is specific to the screen on the Arduino screen. The Arduino specific additions were designed to work as similarly to the Processing API as possible.

The library is backwards compatible, which means you can still use the Adafruit functions described here.

The TFT library relies on the SPI library, which must be included in any sketch that uses the scree. If you wish to use the SD card, you need to include the SD library as well.
