Using the Char map


New member
I would like to know how to use the characters in the map. I am thinking of using the bar graph characters to make boxes or maybe even use the special 8 characters on my screens. I dont know how to do this. It has to be something simple like ~char138~ or something. Any help would be great. :)

Nevermind. It doesnt display right on the virtual display. The actual display shows the correct character. So it works but is really hard to program without looking over at the LCD. I just find this weird because i am using the special font file. Do you have a windows font that correctly reflects the CGROM?

Ah right.
I dont know of a font that correctly emulates LCD characters.
The problem is that different LCDs have different character maps, so a font would need to be made for each.
Making fonts isnt an easy thing to do :(
