This is my take on a LCD menu system that I am going to use for my school project.
Hopefully, I’ll have the chance to do more Arduino related projects in the future, thus I would like to know how I can improve as to not make the same mistakes in the future.
I researched a fair amount on LCD menu systems, however almost all of them I see mainly uses Arrays. Which I do not understand well, therefore I tried to avoid using it. This is also the case for the “while” statement.
This current code works, but it did take me quite a lot of time, along with numerous trials and errors.
A few things that I would like to know is:
- Making the code easily “manipulable”? (Example: Adding more menus and stuff easily.)
- Disadvantage of mainly If/Else and Switch.
- Advantage of using Arrays, While and any other statement that I do not know of.
As the code is separated by tabs and total character would exceed the limit of 9000, I don’t think I can use the Code tag. Instead, I’ll attach all my files in this post.
