Hi All.

Does anybody, has some samplecode, on how to make big numbers on a 2x16 LCD?
I would like the numbers to be 2 wide x 2 high or 3 wide x 2 high.

I found this example, but I really don't like that "font".

Hope somebody has some good idears.

Best regards from.
Christian

According the link in your start post you need only 5 special characters for 3 wide, 2 high. (Only 4 special characters if you don't need decimal point)

Hi.

Thanks for all the answers. I got it all working, but I don't like what I see. It looks too clumsy Sad
What I need is actualy a 8x2 lcd with big numbers, like this one
http://www.crystalfontz.com/product/CFAH0802ZYYHJP.html
but importing that to Denmark, is just as expensive, at putting in a bigger AVR and a GLCD, and that is a little overkill for this project.

Has anybody seen a 8x2 LCD with BIG letter at a GOOD price, in europe, I would be VERY happy.

Thanks for you help.

Best regards from.
Christian
