7 segment LED 1.2" - characters that aren't hex

by andrewa on Sun Oct 27, 2013 3:47 pm

Is there a way to display characters on the 7-segment LED that aren't hex? Seems this could be useful...

For example, you can have g, h, l, n, o, p, q, r, t, u, etc.

I'm wondering how to display the word 'cold' and 'hot' on the 7-segment display..

I checked the .cpp code, but didn't see that option...

Thanks.

Delving into the documentation some more, writeDigitRaw()...
