I'm using the AdaFruit LCD Shield that has the Left, Right, Up, Down, Select and Reset Buttons and I'm stumped.
When a button is pressed as in the Hello World Example it holds the text on the display of the last button pressed. I can't figure out for the life of me how to press any one of the Buttons and have my code go on to another task.
Example: If I press the Down Button I want my initial welcome screen to change to "Start In" and on the second line a count down timer from say 10 down to 0 Seconds. I then want the rest of my code to execute and have the capability to pause it by pressing one of the other buttons. If I press the Down Button again the countdown timer will again run before going on.
All I can get it to do is display "Start In" and a countdown timer that is only updated each time I press the Down Button. I have also not been able to use any conditional statements as well to move on when 0 is reached in the countdown.
I know this is a stupid question but I'm newer than a new born baby and it's got me stumped. Most of my other code is built and far more complex than this but as I say I'm stuck on this one.
