The Degree symbol º

Post by mike2545 » Thu Sep 04, 2014 6:46 pm

I have tried most everything to have the LCD117 display the degreeº symbol to no avail.
Hex DF should do it or binary 11011111. I am using Big Number Mode otherwise I would generate my own 1C141C0000000000.
Modern device has this as a resource http://moderndevice.com/wp-content/uplo ... _2004D.pdf

which shows the degree symbol as one of the characters it can display.

I am using PicBasic Pro any suggestions?

mike2545,

Sorry for the really slow reply.

Try the character test button on the LCD117 and watch it scroll through the whole character set. If you don't see the symbol then maybe our docs are in error. It is possible that either they did not come from our LCD manufacturer or that our manufacture changed chips.

Make your own with a custom character - it's easy and fun!

I just tried the character test button, it scrolls through each one but the º symbol is not there. I would use the custom character but like I said in my original post, I am using the big number mode and all the on-board eeprom is filled. :(
