CIKU LCD LIBRARY FUNCTION

Below is a list for basic LCD function that you can used with CIKU. You also can refer to the LiquidCrystal.h (under CIKU.X folder) for more lcd function.

[code lang=”c” highlight=””]void lcd_4bit(UINT8 rs, UINT8 enable,
              UINT8 d0, UINT8 d1, UINT8 d2, UINT8 d3);

void lcd_8bit(UINT8 rs, UINT8 enable,
              UINT8 d0, UINT8 d1, UINT8 d2, UINT8 d3,
              UINT8 d4, UINT8 d5, UINT8 d6, UINT8 d7);

void lcd_begin(UINT8 cols, UINT lines);

void lcd_clear(void);

void lcd_home(void);

void lcd_setCursor(UINT8 col, UINT row);

void lcd_write(UINT8 value);

void lcd_printString(const char *s);

void lcd_printNumber(long n, UINT8 base);

void lcd_printFloat(double number, UINT8 point);
[/code]

USER CODE

This example code shows related function that you can used with LCD Keypad Shield. You also can see this code on User-ControlPanel.c file (under CIKU.X folder).

[code lang=”c” highlight=””]#include "Arduino.h"
#include "LiquidCrystal.h"

int key;
char flag = 1;
unsigned long previousMillis = 0;
int interval = 1000;

void setup()
{
  pinMode(LED, OUTPUT); // LED on CIKU board
  pinMode(A0, INPUT); // Button on LCD Keypad Shield

  lcd_4bit(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7); // RS, E, D4, D5, D6, D7 and backlight is connected to pin 10
  lcd_begin(16, 2);
  lcd_printString("   SHIELD-LCD   ");
  lcd_setCursor(0, 2);
  lcd_printString("Press any key…");

  while(analogRead(A0) > 1000); // Wait until any button is pressed
  lcd_setCursor(0, 2);
  lcd_printString("Button:         ");
}

void loop()
{
  key = analogRead(A0);
  if(key < 1000 && flag == 1)
  {
    flag = 0;
    lcd_setCursor(7, 2);
    if(key < 60) lcd_printString("RIGHT    "); // If RIGHT button is pressed, display "RIGHT"
    else if(key < 220) lcd_printString("UP       "); // If UP button is pressed, display "UP"
    else if(key < 390) lcd_printString("DOWN     "); // If DOWN button is pressed, display "DOWN"
    else if(key < 600) lcd_printString("LEFT     "); // If LEFT button is pressed, display "LEFT"
    else if(key < 870) lcd_printString("SELECT   "); // If SELECT button is pressed, display "SELECT"   }   else if(key > 1000 && flag == 0) // If no button is being pressed, display blank
  {
    flag = 1;
    lcd_setCursor(0, 2);
    lcd_printString("Button:         ");
  }

  unsigned long currentMillis = millis();
  if(currentMillis – previousMillis > interval)
  {
    previousMillis = currentMillis;
    digitalToggle(LED); // LED on CIKU board blink with 1 second interval
  }
}[/code]

NOTE

If you want to compile the User-ControlPanel.c, under MPLAB X IDE, first please remove the User-Template.c (CIKU – Source Files – user). Right click on User-Template.c and select Remove From Project. Then, right click on user folder (CIKU – Source Files), choose Add Existing Item…, open User-ControlPanel.c, and proceed with Build Project.
