 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello all,

I need to print a "special" character to an HD44780 controlled display. The character is a complete block, which is stored in the display controller ROM as xFF after the japanese characters. (shown here http://www.electronic-engineering.ch/microchip/datasheets/lcd/charset.gif ) I know I can use the lcd.create function to just create a special character and use that, but I already have 8 special characters and dont want to have to write/rewrite characters.

Is there a way to write the block character from the current ROM, and how do I do it?

Thanks.

Turns out you can just use lcd.write(data) with the hex/binary/decimal of the character.
