Title: Get Cursor Position Command
Post by: dCipher on September 27, 2017, 01:58:29 PM
Hi

I am using the Serial Liquid Crystal Display Module (4 lines by 20 characters).  It would be very nice if there was a command that would return the cursor position.  This would allow me to handle user input from the keyboard when the entry is more than 20 characters long.  Currently the data wraps to wrong line.  If I knew where the cursor was I could re-position it in those cases.

Thanks,
Simon

Thank you for your feedback. We will certainly take this into consideration for the future designs. As a solution to your current problem, have you though about creating a write routine which a the end of sending the character string returns the cursor to a known position?
