Use a variable field to show the value of a variable on an LCD display.

  • 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 maximum length of the value displayed. If it does not fit, "*" are displayed.
