MPGuino with LCD Philips PCD8544 (?)
 
Hi,

i want to make MPGuino work with LCD Philips PCD8544 (Nokia 3310)
it's possible?...or it's possible but hard to adapt MPGuino code? :confused:

sorry, but i'm new at arduino. =/
Thanks

70% done :D

30% with error:
can't see "cursor" in SETUP. (foto: 7)
big font with error. (foto: 6)
function names. (foto: 2, 3)
...

need help for big font and for SETUP.

have big font like in (foto: 5) but only for "123456" string.
how to correct big font?

in SETUP how to make "cursor" become visible?

Thanks,
BR

LOL, nice hacking there :) though I don't know anything about that display, does it have built in or user defined fonts/glyphs or is it draw your own characters from bitmaps every time?

For $10 more I would consider this, with 1:1 aspect ratio and a lot more real estate and a backlight.

thanks :)
i'm new at all this.
that why i'm using old 3310Lcd.

i think that it is user define font. (normal font 5x7)

Do you have a link to your code example? Not sure where you started. If it is all one file you can cut and paste into a post too.

despite all the tests..

now i'm using two libraries for Philips PCD8544
you want this or MPGuino code?

I was just curious how you did the 123456 part, I hadn't looked into graphical LCDs much prior.

ok, it "looks" like you are sending bitmaps for each character to the LCD when you want to display them, and you have bitmaps/fonts defined from 0-9 and degree and space, so if there is still room in memory you might be able to add character fonts to that ASCII_Large array and figure out how to map character values into it when processing a display string. The temp buffer is only good for 6 characters of course.

Did you write this or where did you find it?

I usually use PROGMEM for "large" tables FYI, so that they don't soak up a bunch of RAM. i.e.
//creating the custom fonts:
LcdCommandWrite(0b01001000); // set cgram
static byte chars[] PROGMEM = {
0b11111, 0b00000, 0b11111, 0b11111, 0b00000,
0b11111, 0b00000, 0b11111, 0b11111, 0b00000,
0b00000, 0b00000, 0b00000, 0b11111, 0b00000,
0b00000, 0b00000, 0b00000, 0b11111, 0b00000,
0b00000, 0b00000, 0b00000, 0b11111, 0b00000,
0b00000, 0b00000, 0b00000, 0b11111, 0b01110,
0b00000, 0b11111, 0b11111, 0b11111, 0b01110,
0b00000, 0b11111, 0b11111, 0b11111, 0b01110 };

also using binary notation can allow you to visualize the font in the code sort-of. Here we have 5 8x5 characters. A thick line on top, a thick line on bottom, a thick line on top and bottom, a completely filled font, and a dot.
