If I set the autoscroll before writing the message, the display clears itselfDirkS wrote:Did you set autoscroll *before* writing the message?
Does the example code work? You may have to change the pin configuration.
See https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Py ... har_lcd.py
It doesnt work even if I make the message longer. I use Adafruit CHar LCD. . . what am I doing wrong? ThanksDirkS wrote:IIRC autoscroll only works for messages that don't fit on the display and you probably have to set it before you display the message.
And the common is some wave form, which specifies which segments are selected, and which characters are going to be displayed, right?BMS Doug wrote:I think that is correct, I just use the libraries that other people have already written.
