    Don't improvise or over think it. Just copy/paste and modify for your pins.

    Ah... got it!

    Sorry for the apparent trouble Darrel. Thanks for walking me through it, I appreciate your time very much, and I appreciate your work on this code.

    Darrel, so I cut-n-pasted your exact code into a new project, changed only the LCD VARs, and am now getting much farther than before...but...

    Now I'm getting stuck when LCD_Anypin.pbp compiles, the code is cut from your 1st post, my only change was:


    Code:
    LCD_DB4   VAR PORTB.5
    LCD_DB5   VAR PORTB.4
    LCD_DB6   VAR PORTB.3
    LCD_DB7   VAR PORTB.2
    LCD_RS    VAR PORTB.7
    LCD_E     VAR PORTB.6

    Sorry, never mind that last post.

    I realized that I included the files LCD_AnyPin.pbp and VirtualPort.bas (in the files applet) rather than just having them referenced from my *.bas, and that was causing MPLAB to try compiling them.

    Default Still no traction

    I'm still not getting anywhere with this.

    At this point I've tried so many things I can't tell where I'm at anymore.

    I think the LCD_Anypin code is working, it compiles w/o error and when I probe the circuit (the 16F883 is in) with my oscilloscope while its supposed to be running, I am seeing the "E" pin going up and down, but not seeing anything on the data pins LCD_DB4 through LCD_DB7.

    I'm trying to get this LCD onto PortB. I understand the 16F883 has a comparator on pins 22-(aka; RB1) and pin 24-(aka; RB3) and that can be a problem so I've tried to use CM1CON0=%00000000 to disable them.

    I'm trying to get my LCD (H44780 type) to be hooked up to the 16F883 as follows:

    RB7->RS
    RB6->E
    RB5->D4
    RB4->D5
    RB3->D6
    RB2->D7

    so far no joy.

    In many threads here and elsewhere I see people saying I should have my own __CONFIG line instead of relying on the default PBP one, so I tried that. Also people say to disable the WDT so I tried that too.

    My PICKit2 programmer and software seem to working properly, it can run the tests fine and seems to read/write to the PIC.

    When I switch on my test circuit all I get on the 16x2 LCD is the first row of pixel-blocks and nothing else...ever.

    Any help would be very much ppreciated, I'm just starting out with PIC programming I'll appologise in advance if I'm doing something stupid in my code:


    Code:
    @ __config _CONFIG1, _INTRC_OSC_NOCLKOUT & _WDT_OFF & _MCLRE_ON & _LVP_OFF & _CP_OFF & _HS_OSC
    
    CLEAR
    DEFINE OSC 4                 ; set oscillator speed
    
    ; Setup Ports and Pins
    PORTA  = %00000000
    TRISA  = %00000011           ; set AN0 and AN1 to inputs
    PORTB  = %00000000
    TRISB  = %00000000           ; set all PORTB pins to outputs
    IOCB   = %00000000           ; disable IOCB on PortB
    PORTC  = %00000000
    TRISC  = %00000000           ; set all PORTC pins to outputs
     
    ; Initialize I/O 
    ADCON0  = %00000111          ; enable and set up AN0 input as ADC
    ADCON1  = %10000000          ; right justify and use power rails as Vref
    ANSEL   = %00000001          ; A/D enabled for ANS0, disabled for ANS1->ANS7
    ANSELH  = %00000000          ; A/D disabled for ANS8->ANS13
    CM1CON0 = %00000000          ; Disable comparators
    CM2CON0 = %00000000          ; These default to disabled at POR, but just in case

        PAUSE 2000
    
    GOTO Main
    
    END
    I'd love to just hook up the LCD like PBP normally wants it, but I have no control over the PCB it's an existing design and I have to get it to work as-is (LCD on PortB:RB2-7)

    Please x'cuse me while I go pull what's left of my hair out....

    Is the RW pin on the LCD connected to the PIC, or is it grounded?

    Yes, when I plug it into another pic controlled unit I get both lines of verbiage expected.

    The circuit board has the RW line hard-wired to ground.

    Would it be better to re-post this Q over in the regular part of the forum since it's doesn't seem related directly to the LCD_Anypin extension? my thinking is it might be something peculiar to the 16F883 that someone may see and chime-in about.

    Schematic attached.
    (Note that in the code I'm not doing anythng with the sensor yet, and it's disconected from AN0 right now)

    Just curious why you have LCD Data on RB2,3,4 & 5. If you simply moved them up two pins and moves E and RS down, you could use the standard PICBasic product with no modifications. I can understand if you have a PIC which doesn't have four consecutive pins available on a port, but why go to all the inconvenience when there is no need?

    In your code above, you have MCLRE enabled.

    But in the schematic you don't have a pull-up on MCLR (Pin 1).

    I'll try adding that, thank you. I'm sorry to keep bugging you about this.

    The circuit board is an existing design, I'd love to move things but I have to go with the produced PCB. The next thing one might wonder is how a person like me ends up with this on his plate? well I have VB, C, C++, MFC and C# experience and someone, in their infinite wisdom thought I'd be good to take this on as a "challenge". What I have absolutely zero experience with is PIC microcontrollers which seems to be a long-shot away from Windows programming.

    I'm sorry if I'm testing anyone's patience over this, perhaps PBP isn't the right tool for this task, perhaps I'll look into some C implementations for achieving this task.

    Unless Darrel has done this routine in C, I think you won't find a solution in other places...

    I touched nothing on your code.

    Just compiled it as is.

    And it works with no problem as seen in the simulation (attached).

    Actually I see you have a pull-up on pin 1 and also have pin 7 tied low.

    I don't see how pin 7 can be any problem for me but looking at the PCB I notice it doesn't have the pull-up on pin 1.

    Existing (pre-programmed) 16F883's I have on my bench are working fine when inserted into this PCB so I have reservations thinking that's the problem at hand.

    Thanks for your responses everyone.

    I'm sorry I don't understand your post, but I tried it with MCRLE_OFF and it makes no difference. I must have some other issues I'm yet unaware of. I have ordered a proper dev board so when that comes maybe I can get a handle on the problem.

    I had set MCRLE_ON from trying to interpret the data sheet:

    Page-212:
    MCLRE: RE3/MCLR pin function select bit(4)
    1 = RE3/MCLR pin function is MCLR
    0 = RE3/MCLR pin function is digital input, MCLR internally tied to VDD

    Page-215 (14.2.2)
    An internal MCLR option is enabled by clearing the
    MCLRE bit in the Configuration Word Register 1.

    When MCLRE = 0, the Reset signal to the chip is generated
    internally. When the MCLRE = 1, the RA3/MCLR pin
    becomes an external Reset input. In this mode, the
    RA3/MCLR pin has a weak pull-up to VDD.


    These data sheets are a long read and at times I'm having trouble interpreting some of the pages.

    Ok, making great progress.

    I recieved my development board, plugged everyting in and coded up the demo example again ....and I'm getting text!
    (woo-hoo!)

    I'm getting:

    #numbers Hello,
    $hex From DT!

    is this correct?

    Default More LCD-AnyPin..

    Darrel,

    Top thanks to you for sharing such nifty code. Like your Bargraph code, I got it to work first time.
    If by chance that you are still running this thread, would you perhaps let me know what I'm doing wrong when I hook all 6 LCD lines to the same Port? It works fine when I hook E and RS to separate Ports.
    This is my first time with MPASM. I had to comment-out the config line, else it doesn't assemble.

    Thanks again.
    Respect for knowing all what you know about PICs.

    Hi Peter,

    I'm not sure what the problem is, but I ran your program on a 16F877a with all the LCD pins on PORTB, and everything worked fine.
    Although, with the pinout you are using ... you don't really need the LCD_AnyPin program (the data bus is on RB4-7).

    I'm gobsmacked.
    Many thanks for taking the time to do that just on my account. Really appreciated.

    Your photo has given me a good clue; I see that you are using B.2 and B.3. Up til now I'd been using B.0 and B.1 only.
    It turns out that it only works from B.1 onwards (with both PBP *and* LCD_AnyPin). I thought it might be because of a hardware fault, but B.0 is fine with a temporary LED.
    It's all rather strange because the PBP manual implies that any PortB pin should work.

    Do you mind if I trouble you for one more question, pse?
    Could you have a look at my CONFIG and perhaps let me know why MSC gives an error when I try to compile without the semicolon?

    Thanks again to you for doing all that work on my account.

    Well, I moved E and RS to RB0 and RB1 ... it still works.

    You might try turning that LED around and see if PORTB.0 will drive the output both ways.
    It could be that half of the output stage is toasted.

    And for the config error, you just need to comment the default configs in the .inc file.

    Thanks again, Darrel.

    You will no doubt be chuffed to hear that your prognosis was 100% correct.
    I tried your LED suggestion and can confirm that PortB.0 was indeed dead - both ways. I've just taken delivery of some new '877s. Your LCD_AnyPin and all Ports are now working perfectly.

    I think I owe you an apology for sending you all around the houses in the first place; I really should have had the noodle to check that port with a LED before bothering you. For what it's worth, I'm sorry for wasting your time, but I do appreciate you coming back just the same.

    From myself, and on behalf of all the other members here, top thanks to you for sharing your work, and top thanks for sharing your much-appreciated know-how.

    Thanks also for the heads-up regarding the Config thing.

    Is there something I can do that will make LCD_AnyPin work with PBPL?

    This is the test code im using.

    Code:
    LCD_DB4         VAR PORTA.4
    LCD_DB5         VAR PORTA.2
    LCD_DB6         VAR PORTA.3
    LCD_DB7         VAR PORTB.0
    LCD_RS          VAR PORTA.0
    LCD_E           VAR PORTA.1
    LCD_Lines       CON 2    
    LCD_DATAUS      CON 50 
    LCD_COMMANDUS   CON 2000
    
    INCLUDE "LCD_AnyPin.pbp"
    
    LCDOut $FE,1,$FE,2,"Hello World!"
    
    END
    It compiles and works fine with regular PBP, but I get this error when I use PBPL:

    Code:
    ERROR: (HighJacked-LCDOUT Not found in PBPPIC??.LIB)
    Any ideas? I suspect I'll need to edit another PBP file, but i'm not sure.

    You are right. You need to edit pbppi18l.lib as you did pbppic18.lib, and it should work. Don't forget to save a copy, just in case.

    Thanks scalerobotics. That worked

    Default Highjack time :)

    Hi
    I am running out of pins so it is time to implement LCD_Anypin but I have a question. Do I need the standard PBP defines also? You know the DEFINE LCD_REG, DEFINE LCD_BITS and so on.

    I want to interface a 4 lines 16 characters display to my project using a 4 bit databus.
    My guess is I need DEFINE LCD_BITS 4 and DEFINE LCD_LINES 4


    This will be the second DT code I include, the fist one is of course DT-Interrupts and I bet LCD_Anypin will be equally usefull.

    Smile 2 wires lcd for bpb

    Using the Darrel Taylor LCD_AnyPin.pbp as a template i adapted the 2 wires idea of M. Predko to be used in PICBASIC. (LCDOUT)
    The new .pbp patch is not so professional as the original (maybe Mr Darrel Taylor can fix it), but is working.
    Only two pins (any) of the uC are neded to drive the LCD display (44780 type).
    The example is for 16F628A uC.
    Some time is very useful to have more pins available.

    Hope the attachment PBP_2WSLCD.zip is inserted correctly!

    Woohoo!
    Nice work Guido!

    I copied your post to the LCD's with Shift Registers, and LCDOUT thread too.

    Hi, Darrel

    as " LCD on anypin " was ... not intended for 8 pins Pic 12 series

    But now, as only two pins are needded ...

    is "LCD on anypin" compatible with PBPPIC12.lib .... ???

    I had a look at the Library and NOPE ...

    No way to do it on a chip with only 2 stack levels (12-bit core).

    There are several other 8-pin pics with 14-bit cores. 12F629, 675, 683 ...
    It'll work fine on those.

    Hi, Darrel

    thanks for the point.

    So, ... in this case THIS would be a solution to test, avoiding the " Backpacks"

    That's pretty neat.

    But with the new PIC's costing $1 or less, and could do a full 8-bit interface on a back-pack with an internal OSC.
    That one seems pretty expensive with all the extra parts.

    Hi, Darrel

    you just need the serial to // 8 bits register ( 74xx164, or 595 w/ latch if I'm right ...) and caps & resistors, not the whole 12$ board !!!

    that's much closer to a small Pic cost ...

    I used this kind of config for my R/C decoders ... 30 years ago. nothing really new under the sun ...

    Default pic16F1933 and LCD_AnyPin

    This is the test code im using.

    Code:
    LCD_DB4         VAR PORTA.4
    LCD_DB5         VAR PORTA.2
    LCD_DB6         VAR PORTA.3
    LCD_DB7         VAR PORTB.0
    LCD_RS          VAR PORTA.0
    LCD_E           VAR PORTA.1
    LCD_Lines       CON 2    
    LCD_DATAUS      CON 50 
    LCD_COMMANDUS   CON 2000
    
    INCLUDE "LCD_AnyPin.pbp"
    
    LCDOut $FE,1,$FE,2,"Hello World!"
    
    END
    It compiles and works fine with regular PBP, but I get this error when I use PBPL:

    Code:
    ERROR: (HighJacked-LCDOUT Not found in PBPPIC??.LIB)
    Any ideas? I suspect I'll need to edit another PBP file, but i'm not sure.
    I have the same problem (ERROR: (HighJacked-LCDOUT Not found in PBPPIC??.LIB) with a 16F1933 using pbp2.60 ... are there any other things wich have to be changed into the libraries ?

    Best Regards,
    Bogdan
