how to get lcd to show soft serial received text ?

Hello All ,programming is not my strength ( electronics is)… I would like to display what i have coming out of my soft serial port so i can see on the lcd… I have been able to type into serial monitor and shows on lcd, but how to show what is coming out of soft serial seems to avoid me…

I want to make a small device that i can send a command ( text or number to my Bluetooth on the uno and be able to check what it receives on the lcd, works ok at present i can monitor on the serial monitor , just want to add lcd so was portable… My code below ( I bet it is something very easy I am just missing) ?


#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);

SoftwareSerial mySerial(3, 2); // RX, TX
#define text
#define text=myserial

void setup()

// set up the LCD’s number of columns and rows:
lcd.begin(16, 2);//added
// Open serial communications and wait for port to open:
while (!Serial) {
; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only

mySerial.println(“test comms”);

void loop()
if (mySerial.available())
if (Serial.available())
lcd.print("need to see what bluetooth received ");// this is where i would like to send soft serial so i can see it on the lcd ???

Instead of writing to Serial, try writing to lcd:

  if (mySerial.available())

Thanks Karma,,,, I needed to add a delay also so could see the display.. Cheers.
