LCD Consistent printing

Hi I am wondering how I can get the LCD to stop printing stuff out on the screen every milli second. I want the LCD screen to display, e.g. "press 1 to enter menu," while checking for a keystroke. How can I do this without a delay which does not allow checking until the screen is blank. Thank you

It only does what you tell it to do. Stop telling it to print stuff out every millisecond and it will stop doing so.

You will undoubtedly get a better answer if you provide the code that you are using.
