    Hi all,

    Are there LCDs bigger than 20*4 ??

    Also, if I use graphic LCD, is it difficult to program when compared to normal LCDs?

    I've seen at least one 40x4 character display (on EBay I believe) so there are some out there. That particular device lacked a backlight which makes it not so useful.

    A graphic display is just that: you need to set each and every pixel as you want it. It knows nothing about letter shapes so you must draw every letter. I use done once and it took some time to create the code library to run it.

    Microchip does give away such a library that works very well with the color graphic displays, even implementing buttons and such for touch screen displays.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Actually I was looking for an LCD with more lines, maybe a 6 line LCD. Are there such products in the market?
