LCD LIbrary LCD_LIB-8bit


Senior Member
This is a port of the Arduino LiquidCrystal LCD library to the PICAXE to drive text-based LCDs using their 8-bit mode.
It uses an 8-bit port so it can only be used with the 18M2, 20M2, 20X2, 28X2 & 40X2 chips.

To use it:
1. Download the files
2. Extract the library files and example programs from the zip file into a directory.
3. Connect your PICAXE chip to the LCD. The manual has pictures showing how to connect each PICAXE chip to the LCD to work with the example programs.
4. Download one of the example programs into the PICAXE using Program Editor.

That's it!

See the manual for instructions on how to include this library in your own programs and for the list of commands that the library supports.

NOTE: You can only include one of the LCD_LIB libraries in your program. You cannot use LCD_LIB-8bit together with LCD_LIB-4bit or LCD_LIB-PCF8574-I2C.
