Software ( Arduino Library )

Arduino GLCD Library Version3 ( or AVR Controller )


GLCD-Arduino has the following features:
  • Support for Arduino 1.x (still works with pre 1.x IDEs)
  • Support for Mega 2560, Sanguino and Teensy boards
  • Easier pin assignment. Any pin can be assigned to any glcd function.
  • Accurate/Consistent font rendering of any font size on any pixel location.
  • User definable text areas
  • Up/Down text scrolling
  • Circle functions
  • Additional example and demo sketches including a diagnostic sketch
  • Fully search-able documentation in HTML format
  • Pins can optionally be assigned by AVR port and bit instead of Arduino pin number.
  • Supports fixed width fonts that provides up to 8 x 21 character display with the supplied system font.
  • CursorTo method to position the cursor to a given font location (fixed width fonts only)
  • DrawBitmap function to display bitmap images stored in Flash memory. A Processing utility is provided in the download to convert a monochrome bitmap file to a header file that stores the image in flash for use by the DrwBitmap method.

Create Font  use GLCD Font Creator 2
Use this program

How to Create Font in other Language

FONT 8 x 8

FONT 14 x 20

Example in Thai language
I've edit GLCD Font Creator 2 for Thai language only. ( Java Code )
