Custom character generator for HD44780 LCD Modules

Hi guys!

I've made a custom character(glyph) generator for HD44780 LCD modules.
It was inspired by Omerk's custom character generator, wich can be visited here.
The differences are that my version supports creating more than one glyph at a time and it has a more modern design.

It can be visited at Glyph Creator
The source code is available at

Very nice.
I'll put a link to it in the LCDcustomChar sketches in my hd44780 library.

One thing that would be cool is if you could hold down the mouse button an move around to invert pixels vs having to click each on separately.

It also might be nice if there was a button to flip between the binary output like you have now to a single line of hex bytes like this:

uint8_t bell[8]  = {0x04,0x0e,0x0e,0x0e,0x1f,0x00,0x04,0x00};

As it is more compact.

BTW, link was added to the example sketches and will be available on the next release of hd44780.

Hi bill!
Thanks for your feedback! I really appreciate it.

I was working on other projects so I didn't really have time to look a the forum.
I have updated the web page to have the features you suggested.
