API

constructor

var lcd = new CharLCD(params);
params is an object with the following keys:

  • at: a DOM element in which to place the object, or its id; default: at the bottom of the page;
  • rom: jp (default) for Japanese standard font, or eu for European standard font.
  • rows: - number of rows; default: 2;
  • cols: - number of columns; default: 16;

Unlike the real hardware where only certain combinations of rows/cols exist, there are no restrictions in the simulator;

char(r, c, h)

lcd.char(r, c, h); - set the character at row r, column c to byte h.

text(r, c, s)

lcd.text(r, c, s); - print string s at row r, column c.
This function treats \n as new line and maps UNICODE characters to the internal character set.

font(n, data)

lcd.font(n, data); - define the pixels for the n-th character; data is an array of up to 10 bytes.
In real hardware, only first 8 characters can be changed, but there is no such limitation in the simulator.
