OD01 Name Tag

Arduino
This code is used in an Arduino sketch (.ino file) to run the project.
#include <xCore.h>
#include <xOD01.h>

void setup() {
  // Start I2C bus
  Wire.begin();

  // Start OLED
  OLED.begin();

  //Print your name on the tag
  print_name("BEN DIXON");
}

void loop() {
  //Nothing needed here
}

void print_name(String your_name)
{
  //Clears the OLED to take away anything previously displayed.
  OD01.clear();

  //Set to large font size and print first line
  OD01.set2X();
  OD01.println("HELLO");

  //Print next line
  OD01.println("my name is");

  //Set to smaller font size to print a space
  OD01.set1X();
  OD01.println();
 
  //Set to large font size and print name
  OD01.set2X();
  OD01.println(your_name);
}
