Is it possible to output text on an i2c LCD on Activity Board?
Revolve Posts: 6
so i have this i2c LCD with the SPI backpack on it like the PCF8574. I got it off amazon and I know that theres a tutorial for the Propeller 2 breadboard, my question is can this be programmed using BlocklyProp? Also, I have a 16x64 SRGB matrix that i would like to see if I can use BlocklyProp to output text as well.
Yes, but I don't know how to do it in Blockly Prop. The attached Spin object is something I use pretty regularly with the P1. It's Spin, so you may have to look up a few things, but that will be helpful in your learning process.
what do i use for that? Simple IDE? or something else?
I use Propeller Tool for programming the P1 ad P2 in Spin, but for you case where the files are just reference, you can use any text editor. I'm am working on the assumption that you have I2C available in Blockly Prop. If you follow the logic, the LCD driver is built on the PCF8574 object which is built on I2C.
