Community Question

I would be grateful for some help with a couple of scripts. It is for a LCD05 16x2 display connected to i2c and can display text no problem, but I want to be able to display the live time and date but got no idea of how to write the scripts, although I have tried and failed. I did ask something similar in another post regarding voltage, but didn't manage to get that work either. Here's the main code for the display...

Code:

i2cwrite(0,0xc6,0,1,4,12,19,30,230,31,255,"Text is displayed here")



Ive tried numinous ways of scripting it to show the info with time, date, and voltage vairables, but it either shows the variable code ("$x" ), or a blank screen (without quote marks).

I very rarely ask for a full script to be written for me, just examples, as I like to work it out for myself, but I'm really stuck on this and have no idea what to do. So if somebody would oblige, even with one full example, I would very much appreciate it indeed. If I at least had a full working example, I could read through it, dissect it, hopefully understand it, and learn from it to write my own.

Thanks. :)

Code:



i2cwrite(0,0xc6,0,1,4,12,19,30,230,31,255,"Time is " + $time)

Thanks buddy. I think I missed the + out of my code. I'll try it tomorrow. :)

I thought I marked this as "resolved" already, but obviously it didn't go through. Anyway, thanks for the help DJ. I'm very grateful. :)
