Topic: How to scroll only 1 row? (Read 195 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi, I have this cute little setup with a normal Hitachi HD44780 type lcd display which displays some text in the upper row and the time since reset in minutes and seconds in the lower row. It works nicely if the text is only 16 digits/letters but if it's longer it obviously only displays the first 16 letters.
To solve this you can use the scroll commands. Sadly they all affect both rows, which also puts my little clock out of bounds.
My question is: How can I only scrow one row?

The short answer is that you cannot do this using just the commands available in the LCD controller, you have to do it in software.

See if either of these old threads help:
