Display Text or String on LCD 16×2 using Arduino

Earlier you learn Interfacing of LCD with Arduino and then LCD begin & how to set Cursor of LCD to display, Now you will learn how to display text or string on LCD 16×2 using Arduino, for this we will use LCD function print.

Syntax: object.print( Text to print );

Arduino Programming Code for LCD 16×2

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>
LiquidCrystallcd(2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7);

void setup() {
  // set up the LCD's number of columns and rows:
  lcd.begin(16, 2);

  // set up cursor at top left
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("HELLO");

  // set up cursor at bottom left
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("WORLD");
}

void loop() {

}

Configuring is Important

After uploading the code to the Arduino, may be no any content visible in this case we need to vary the variable resistance (POT) 10 KΩ, by varying this resistance you can see printed string on LCD screen. Variable resister is used because in different climatic conditions different value of resistance can make display properly.
