Best way to manage lcd messages display

Hi,

In the main loop I have a method that display on 16x2 lines LCD the current hour and the current date.

16:29:00
Saturday 18 Dec

Sometime I would notify me when some timed actions are doing their job.

So I write another message that replace date message

16:29:00
JOB01 is working

But I would like that message appears only for 5 seconds and then let display of date message again after 5 seconds.

I am working on a generic code to manage this kind of problem.

Continuously message interrupted by quick messages.

Nice that you do that, it might be of interest to others. Keep us informed when you're done.
