Can the display.scroll () function be slowed down? [SOLVED]

Hello,

can the display.scroll () function be slowed down?

In some cases it is very fast so one can't read say a decimal number scrolled on the 5x5 LED display on a micro:bit out there.

Check out the delay parameter for the scroll function. Higher is slower.


from microbit import *

display.scroll("Long string", delay=500, wait=True, loop=False, monospace=False)

Thank you very much for pointing me into the right direction.
I learn now how the microbit.display.scroll(string, delay=150, *, wait=True, loop=False, monospace=False) module works.
I am using this code now:

Code: Select all

display.scroll(str(speed), delay=500, wait=True, monospace=True)
Best, Pal
