Do you guys know how to initialize LCD without using the LiquidCrystal library on Arduino? I totally new and I wanted to understand how to the initialization process. I have the hitachi 2x16 LCD.
Hi @allI'm going to build a motorized slider for time lapse photography. I wanted to have a menu for adjusting some parameters and select different modes. I spent a lot of time in developing a own menu structure, tried the MenuBackend Library but ended up with changing an other existing menu library (http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1242443739).I think that it was made for a pre-Arduino1.0 so I had to alter some things. It also used the digital ports and a 4x20 LCD. I changed it to operate with my LCD shield(http://www.sainsmart.com/home-page-view/sainsmart-1602-lcd-keypad-shield-for-arduino-duemilanove-uno-mega2560-mega1280.html) which has a 2x16 LCD with a analog port keypad.It's just a quick&dirty solution - so feel free to change and share your ideas.I hope you like it - please comment!
Could you share your code?
