I am hoping someone can help me. I am currently involved in a project where I wish to use a large (3" - 5") LCD display with my Arduino mega. However, I do not wish to use it as a touch screen, since the user will most probably be using gloves and working with sensitive materials. I wish to use physical push buttons (preferable on a key pay (up/down/left/right arrows) of sorts) and communicate with the LCD display.
I would like to use the push button arrows to navigate the cursor (by highlighting , or encasing the selected item in a menu) on the display, whilst having real time stepper motor readings always visible (possibly next to the list of menu items). I cannot find any tutorials that discuss this or show me that this is possible.
Is this possible? And if so, where should I look for lcd types and code?
Thank you Kind Regards Scott
