It will print a char array, I know this because I too use that library. The function I gave is from my own library that works with UTFT.
Do this, and see if it prints.
char myMSG = "Hello";
I know that decimal 65 is "A", how might I go about converting a 65 found in an array to a string value I can print on screen?
Use myGLCD.printNumI for integers and .printNumF for floats.
If you look at the UTFT library, you will see two versions of the .print function. One is for char pointers, and the other is for, yes, Strings.
