hello people
In terms of connecting the SSD1306 display to the esp8266 it doesn't work I use pin D1 and D2 It doesn't work here the example I'm using could someone help about the output pins to use.
I thank
SSD1306:
Sub Process_Globals
    Public Serial1 As Serial
    Public WiFi As ESP8266WiFi
    Public Udp As WiFiUDP
    Public WifiSSID As String="xxx"
    Public WifiPass As String="xxx"
    Private ssd As AdafruitSSD1306
    Private d1pins As D1Pins
    
    
End Sub

Private Sub AppStart
    Serial1.Initialize(115200)
    Log("AppStart")
    ssd.InitializeI2C(d1pins.D6, 0x3c)
    
    ssd.ClearDisplay
    ssd.GFX.SetCursor(0, 0)
    ssd.GFX.ConfigureText(2, ssd.WHITE, False)
    ssd.GFX.DrawText("Wifi ...").DrawText(CRLF).DrawText(CRLF)
    ssd.Display
  
    If WiFi.IsConnected=False Then
        ConnectToNetwork
    End If
    
    'Udp.Initialize(8888,"UDP_PacketArrived")
    ssd.ClearDisplay
    ssd.GFX.SetCursor(0, 0)
    ssd.GFX.ConfigureText(2, ssd.WHITE, False)
    ssd.GFX.DrawText("Wifi .. OK").DrawText(CRLF).DrawText(CRLF)
    ssd.GFX.DrawText("No UDP Data")
    ssd.Display
End Sub

Sub ConnectToNetwork
    If WiFi.IsConnected Then
        Return
    End If
    If WiFi.Connect2(WifiSSID, WifiPass) Then
        Log("Connected successfully to: ", WifiSSID)
        Log(WiFi.LocalIp)
    Else
        Log("Failed to connect.")
    End If
End Sub

Try to change i2c address 0x3c to 0x3d.

You could try an I2C Scanner. Here is one for the Arduino IDE.

What ESP are you using?

B4X:

#include <Wire.h>
 
void setup() {
  Wire.begin();
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.println("\nI2C Scanner");
}
 
void loop() {
  byte error, address;
  int nDevices;
  Serial.println("Scanning...");
  nDevices = 0;
  for(address = 1; address < 127; address++ ) {
    Wire.beginTransmission(address);
    error = Wire.endTransmission();
    if (error == 0) {
      Serial.print("I2C device found at address 0x");
      if (address<16) {
        Serial.print("0");
      }
      Serial.println(address,HEX);
      nDevices++;
    }
    else if (error==4) {
      Serial.print("Unknow error at address 0x");
      if (address<16) {
        Serial.print("0");
      }
      Serial.println(address,HEX);
    }   
  }
  if (nDevices == 0) {
    Serial.println("No I2C devices found\n");
  }
  else {
    Serial.println("done\n");
  }
  delay(5000);

Here is a b4r snippet for i2c address scanner , The esp is 8266. what is the electric circuit diagram?

You are using i2c of esp8266 nodeMCU D1 scl and D2 sda....
but in your code in initialization you use pin D6...is that correct?
it should be
B4X:
ssd.InitializeI2C(d1pins.D1, 0x3c)
As far as i know, his code is correct if Pin D6 is free. Here is my setup.

if you are using wemos D1 mini,
D1 is GPI05 => pin = 5 for your init
D2 is GPIO4 => pin = 4 for your init
by default SCL is pin 5 and SDA is pin 4 (GPIO is the pin corresponding at arduino)

Yes I am using NodeMCU ESP8266
D1 and D2
Look at the photo and the same configuration that I am using here

first step is to check if slave I2C is seen with I2C-scanner provided above :
- what is result of this script ?

hello all
Here for me everything goes wrong kkkk
I've done as friends said and it doesn't work for me here the settings I'm using
If anyone has any more advice, I'd appreciate it.

1.You'd better post the project, File ->Export As Zip
2.Show us your electric circuit picture as below

There is only one thing I can think of. In the directory for rAdafruitSSD1306, there is a file called Adafruit_SSD1306.h. If you open the file with a good text editor (Notepad++ for example) and scroll to line 73. You can see that you have to set the resolution of the display. Have you done/tried this?
Lines 55 to 76 from Adafruit_SSD1306.h:
#define SSD1306_I2C_ADDRESS   0x3C  // 011110+SA0+RW - 0x3C or 0x3D
// Address for 128x32 is 0x3C
// Address for 128x64 is 0x3D (default) or 0x3C (if SA0 is grounded)

/*=========================================================================
    SSD1306 Displays
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The driver is used in multiple displays (128x64, 128x32, etc.).
    Select the appropriate display below to create an appropriately
    sized framebuffer, etc.

    SSD1306_128_64  128x64 pixel display

    SSD1306_128_32  128x32 pixel display

    SSD1306_96_16

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------*/
   #define SSD1306_128_64 <-- comment or uncomment as required! This works for the 0.96" OLED.
//   #define SSD1306_128_32
//   #define SSD1306_96_16
/*=========================================================================*/

As I said before, your code looks correct. Have you a second OLED to try?

Just an after thought, what Arduino IDE version are you using?

SSD1306:

I made the same clock file and the one you are using does not work







Sub Process_Globals

Public Serial1 As Serial

Private wifi As ESP8266WiFi

Private clock As Timer

Private ssd As AdafruitSSD1306

Private d1pins As D1Pins

End Sub



Private Sub AppStart

Serial1.Initialize(115200)

Log("AppStart")

'example of connecting to a local network

If wifi.Connect2("Help-Info Central Tec 2.4G", "Pp1c2s3m4") Then

Log("Connected to network")

TimeNIST.Start

clock.Initialize("clock_Tick", 1000)

ssd.InitializeI2C(d1pins.D1, 0x3c)

ssd.ClearDisplay

TimeIsAvailable

Else

Log("Failed to connect to network")

End If

End Sub



Public Sub TimeIsAvailable

clock.Enabled = True

End Sub



Private Sub Clock_Tick

ssd.ClearDisplay

ssd.GFX.SetCursor(0, 0)

ssd.GFX.ConfigureText(1, ssd.WHITE, False)

ssd.GFX.DrawText("Date: ").DrawText(TimeNIST.GetDate).DrawText(CRLF).DrawText(CRLF)

ssd.GFX.ConfigureText(2, ssd.WHITE, False)

ssd.GFX.DrawText(NumberFormat(TimeNIST.GetHours, 2, 0)).DrawText(":").DrawText(NumberFormat(TimeNIST.GetMinutes, 2, 0))

ssd.GFX.DrawText(":").DrawText(NumberFormat(TimeNIST.GetSeconds, 2, 0))

ssd.Display

End Sub[/CODE]

Its good news when everything works. Please use </>CODE tags when posting.

What did you do to get it working? The only thing I can see is the initialise with Pin1.

I want to thank everyone

Now it worked
Here is the code I used As I said I've been using this amazing tool for a few days. I have a lot to learn from you guys thank you so much dear
