Step 2:

Do Not Bother About These much Steps These I Have Done To Make Everything More Clear To You

Go & Proceed With The Next Step :) ;) ..........

Step 3: Download the Files

Downloaded These Files ..........

Pixel To Matrix Application :--

Code :--

Step 4:

Need To Extract the Pixel To Matrix App

Step 5:

Open The Extracted File ........

Step 6:

This Is The Pixel To Matrix App

The App Is Same As That Of 8*8 Led Matrix

Which Has 8 Rows & 8 Columns

Step 7:

Click On The Squares To Make Patterns .....

Step 8:

Then Click The Generate Button To Get The Code .........

Step 9:

This Is The Arduino Code For Led Matrix

Step 10:

Copy The Code ........

Step 11:

Open The Notepad To Paste The Code ....

Step 12:

Paste The Code Here ......

Step 13:

Click To Make The Patterns .......

Step 14:

Copy The Code ...........

Step 15:

Again Paste The Code On The Notepad ..........

Step 16:

Continue Making The Patterns In The App And Copy The Code

Step 17:

Paste The Code In Notepad Till Your Wish To Display The Patterns Which Was Made In The Pixel To Matrix App

Step 18:

Then Open The Arduino Code ........

Step 19:

Delete These Lines ..........

Step 20:

Then Type byte a[8]= {

Step 21:

Then Type byte b[8]= {

Step 22:

Type Till byte j[8]= {

I Have j Lines In My Notepad Code

So That I Have Made It To byte j[8]= {

Step 23:

printByte (a);


Step 27:

Type Lines Upto ,

printByte (j);


Beacuse Iam Having J Lines In The Notepad ...........

If U Have More Than J Lines You Can Type Upto That Line Or Vice Versa .........

Step 28:
