I have noticed that some of you are having problems with using I2C LCD displays so hopefully this may help.
The serial displays I use are the LCD05
Here is a script example of how to use it in I2C mode
# first clear the screen and hide the cursor
# print at 1,3 first message
i2cWrite(0,0xc6,0,3,1,3,"The EZ-B is now")
# next print at 2,2 second message
i2cWrite(0,0xc6,0,3,2,2,"displaying on LCD")
Thanks, this may come in very handy should my LCD I ordered from China about 3 weeks ago not turn up this week.
Rich the command codes for the Chinese displays will probably be different, the LCD05 has a hybrid PCB (with a PIC microcontroller) on the back that handles the comms.
I can really recommend the LCD05 displays, that work well and are a good price.
I bit the bullet and ordered one, hopefully it'll be here this week and I can get it mounted and set up. Just writing the scripts for it now in preparation
