Standard 16 x 2 LCD

This node works with any standard 16x2 LCD module.

Hardware Setup

There are a lot of connections to be made when setting up an LCD to work with an Arduino. See the Arduino LCD Hello World page on the Arduino website for a setup guide. Go through the wiring instructions and upload the sample program.

Using the Node

Once you have verified that your LCD and Arduino are set up correctly, you can use the Standard 16x2 LCD node. The default pin numbers are the same as in the Arduino example so unless you wired up your LCD differently than in that guide you should already be able to use the node. The first two string inputs are the only ones you will need to use, simply edit their values or connect other string outputs to them, and whenever the input text changes the LCD will update.
