Screen cell

Use a screen cell to show a text string and a variable on an LCD display.

  • Text is the string to display in front of the variable
  • Variable is the variable containing the value you want to display
  • Row is the row on the screen, starting with row 0. On a two-line display you will only have the rows 0 and 1.
  • Column is at which column to start displaying the screen cell. Which is handy when you want to show more than one screen item on the same row.
  • The length is the combined length of the screen cell and the value displayed.

If it does not fit, “*” are displayed.
