View Full Version : LCD - Reverse Block Characters

01-15-2009, 07:40 AM
Hi folks,

Before I go reinventing the wheel, is there an 'easy' way to do a reverse block character on the 4x20 LCD (#27979). I'm using the Prop.

For example, if the letter 'A' is black dots on the green background, I would like it to be the other way around - black background, with the letter 'A' outlined in the green.

I can obviously create a custom character for each letter I need reversed, but that is certainly a pain since I will need quite a few of them.

Looked around, but didn't find any handy-dandy command yet. However, perhaps it is obvious and I missed it.

Thanks for any help to point me in the right direction.

Best regards,

Typically displays with more advanced features like that do cost a bit more. I believe the Matrix Orbital display we carry is capable of that, as are any graphical display we carry. I hope this helps. Take care.
