Writing a character in a character LCD (novice question)


New member
I am interfacing a CFAH2002A-YMI-JP with a PIC18F4520 (8-bit interface mode). I can understand the initialization process without a problem.

Once I get the cursor to the starting position, how do I actually write a character? For instance, I am trying to write the capital letter V, which is 0101-0110 in the CGROM table. What is the order of commands that I have to use? I don't know if I need to use the CGRAM or DDRAM address (or both), and when do I use the "write data to RAM" command?
