Is there any documentation for the library at all to see if there are any other functions? Can text be right-justified or something like that? Is there a function for flashing the backlight on & off?
I've never used an LCD before, so it's a bit of a learning curve.
I don't quite understand how to to update a section on the screen, and also erasing what was shown before hand without doing the following:
Code: Select all
lcd.setCursor(17,3); lcd.print(" "); lcd.setCursor(17,3); lcd.print(angle);
By the way, the 'angle' in the above example can be between 0 and 359 - if I don't blank with a " " (three blank spaces) then if the angle changed from 359 to 0 then it would show 059.
(I've attached an image of the display, with an angle of 181 displayed - and I've used the cardboard box that it came in to keep it propped up - very 'Blue Peter'!)
