Please forgive for my english and some basic . i Am new to blynk and coding. After referring many example i am able to get information from code to 5110 display but not from Blynk widget screen to 5110 display.Please help me with highlighted code what should i do to get the code from LCD widget to 5110 lcd screen or there any simple method to transfer from blynk widget to real LCD screen.i am just geeting from LCD string.Thanks in advance

First… Always >FORMAT YOUR CODE< when posting it in the forums… makes it easier to read.

LCD Widget doesn’t send data to anything. You send simple text and/or numbers to it.

It is NOT a graphical display like the 5110 or OLED.

WidgetLCD lcd(V1);  // In app assign virtual pin V1 to the Widget LCD in advanced mode.

lcd.clear();  //  Clear the LCD Widget screen
lcd.print(4, 0, "Hello");  // print Hello on the 1st line, starting at the 4th character in.
lcd.print(6, 1, "World");  // print World on the 2st line, starting at the 6th character in.
