Blynk (Terminal) and (I2C) LCD

Hi, I want to send text from my phone using the terminal widget then have the same text appear onto a i2c LCD. Is this possible?

Yes this is possible. Dig out a sketch to write to your i2C LCD and the Blynkify the sketch.

Ok. Thanks. That’s a start! I’m able to send text to the terminal widget from the IDE, but sending messages from terminal to the LCD really has me stumped.

Getting the data from the terminal will be something like this;:

BLYNK_WRITE(V1) // Terminal Widget on port V1
String text = param.asStr(); // Get typed in data
Serial1.println(text);  // Printing to 2nd hardware serial port as a test

But how you output it to your I2C LCD is entirely up to whatever LCD library you use and the code you write.
