 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

got into Arduino tinkering just two weeks ago (first simple robot project is here: ) and I love it!

Next project would be a kind of "ticker" which displays a bit of text I get from a website on an LCD Display. I have already used the Wifi Shield to get the data from the Website and can display text with the LCD Keypad Shield - but only one shield at a time.

Any information or tutorial how to make both shields work in combination? Or how I can add an LCD Display (without shield) by my own? I googled a lot but could not find any tutorial or a Youtube demo on the successful combination of Wifi and LCD.

Thanks!

I would go with an I2C LCD, it uses only two pins, A4 and A5. There is a LCD I2C library in the playground section, here is the link.http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/LCDi2c

I know that the Radio Shack where I live sells I2C lcd displays, and Ebay has tons, but the shipping time is terrible.

Added: If you get it from Ebay, they usually give you a compatible library.

OK, thanks for the hint!
I just found a serial 7 segment display I ordered from Sparkfun but never used. This one works perfect as long as I only want to show 4 digits smiley

For connecting parallel LCD interfaces to arduino, you can use adafruit tutorial: http://learn.adafruit.com/character-lcds

Just FYI, I sell serial LCDs. You just do Serial.print to it and need no additional library. Google phi-panel LCD backpack and click the inmojo.com store link.
