Post datasheets of TFT display and Touch Screen and mention driver used in TFT display. If there are some buttons on the display then you have to create arrays representing them. Which Compiler you use? If you use mikroC Compile then it has TFT library but don't know whether it supports your TFT. mikroe also has Visual TFT software to create GUI for TFT. Make sure whether your university allows to use mikroe compilers.

I have purchased a 7 inch tft touch screen lcd module which has a ssd1963 lcd driver (below is the link of its datasheet) and i am planning to use avr atmega 2560 microcontroller for that..But i dont know which software to use for creating GUI (as i m new to it) and implementing that gui code to Microcontroller Pls suggest me something so that i can initiate something
**broken link removed** 1963 LCD DRIVER)

Is your touch screen 4 pin type? I need to know the pinout of your display and touch screen. Does you TFT + Touch panel has 47 pins in total?

By looking at its schematic it has total 40 pins to interface with MCU either in 8080 or 6800 parallel mode. Now cud you pls suggest which software to be used to create GUI and the supported language (the main issue i am facing). If i am able to create a GUI on certain software then what is the procedure to implement on LCD
THANKS

You can use Visual TFT from mikroe to create the GUI.

The TFT has 16 data lines and I see one SPI interface the other the T_CLK and other pins starting with T, I have to check reading the datasheet.
