'[EE:] LCD Character Creator software - free'

FYI:

For those that have not seen or used it, Parallax has a really nice (and
free) dot matrix LCD module custom character creator software utility. I've
seen other utilities out there, but I especially like Parallax's version.

I agree it's indeed a very nice tool.
At first I was afraid of the 3.8 MB zipped download, ...
.. but I guess that's a commercial value ;-)

Hi Stef,

Yes, please, don't let the 3.8 MB mistake turn anyone away -- it's only a
~446 KB download in reality.

Best regards,

Ken Pergola

P.S. I like the preview graphic area in the software -- a nice touch.

So now I have to make this myself (but with a very good example) ;-)
(btw. I send Parallax the suggestion)

I'm working on an LED moving sign which uses column data, and
that would be useful (presently using Paint Shop Pro and a 7x8 grid
of fillable circles, it's no great chore I suppose), but I'm grateful for
row data to use on LCD animations

Thanks Ken

As I was in badly need of getting column data,
Inspired by the parallax thing, I quickly wrote my own program.

You can see he help file here
oase.uci.kun.nl/~mientki/pic/jalcc/jalcc_character_generator.html
<http://oase.uci.kun.nl/%7Emientki/pic/jalcc/jalcc_character_generator.html>

You can download the program (freeware) here
http://oase.uci.kun.nl/~mientki/pic/download/char_generator.exe

(don't bookmark the links, because they are just temporary,
If you want to bookmark anything, bookmark my redirector instead
http://pic.flappie.nl )

I've not the intention to maintain this program as a standalone program,
but instead it will be integrated in JALcc (also freeware).

have fun
Stef Mientki
