Refresh textbox on jpg

jpg_decode method

jpg_decode(jpg_filename {, x, y, width, height})

Decode a jpg file and return it or a portion of it as a tuple composed of (buffer, width, height). The buffer is a color565 blit_buffer compatible byte array. The buffer will require width * height * 2 bytes of memory.

If the optional x, y, width, and height parameters are given, the buffer will only contain the specified area of the image.

blit_buffer method

blit_buffer(buffer, x, y, width, height {, alpha})

Copy bytes() or bytearray() content to the screen internal memory, x, y, width, height specified area. Note: every color requires 2 bytes in the array. alpha defaults to 255.

Refresh the specified area of JPG

Based on , rewrite the text_rect method as a class and add an erase method, in which you use the jpg_decode method to store the semi-transparent text box background, then use the blit_buffer method to overwrite the semi-transparent text box, achieving partial refresh.
