Hi all,

          I am using a Ardiuno Mega board with a 2x16 LCD display and a 4x4 keypad. I am able to read my keypad once a button is pressed and display on my LCD. I am also able to display the time on the LCD.

         Just want to know how can I change the time of my RTC using the keypad? The RTC I am using is the DS1307. What library should I be using and what is the function to call to change the time and date?

         Thanks a lot

As far as I know there is not such a library. I think that is not a general issue in order to build a library, but you can write your sketch to implement it....  :)

Hi,
You can use MENWIZ menu library programmed by brunialti. Its simple, userfriendly library.
You can watch a small video of its implementation here:

and watch the following thread for detail:

Hi is there a function inside the DS1307 library that allow used to write the sec, min, hrs individually to the RTC? So in that case I can capture the keypad number and store it into the clock. Thanks a lot

Have you seen how RTC work???.. In Arduino IDE the examples are given. You have to do some lines of programming to accomplish this task.
