Basic LCD


New member

I was just wondering, has anyone ever written any code to make crystalfontz LCDs work with qBasic?
Looking for additional LCD resources? Check out our LCD blog for the latest developments in LCD technology.
Qbasic has support for input and output to the parallel port. All you would have to do is port a module over from visual basic, or some other language, into qbasic that will output to the lcd. I think that this would work the same way for serial lcd's but I'm not sure.

porting a vb module over would be very difficult because qb's method for controlling the serial port is very different. However, I have been forced to look elsewhere because I can't order a crystalfontz LCD from Australia.

I can supply you basic Q-Basic code for 4 bit mode.
8 bit mode will be easier. That is for a paralell LCD.
