Daylight readable LCD
Hey guys, easy question for you. I’m need a character LCD for a project I’m working on. There are a few color options:
Green background, black text
Blue background, white text
Blue background, white text
Red background, black text
Light blue background, dark blue text
White background, black text
What color would you recommend if daylight readability is a top concern? I’m thinking white with black text would be the most readable, but I’m not 100% sure because these things don’t always follow logic . Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I prefer to keep my background color black, and the foreground text color either green or yellow. I find it much easier on my old eyes. However, when I make the background black, the cursor disappears against the black, and I can't see where it is. I've looked at the windows XP control panel for the mouse, but can't figure out how to make the I beam cursor white (or any other visible color) when it is aginst a black background. Any ideas gentlemen? Thanks. It's dspicableI have a bunch of these LCDs from DipMicro. They display white text on blue background. Well... until now they did. Since I started using the display on the Unicorn and using 8-bit mode (Bill Blueroom's code and my own) it now displays dark blue on blue - almost unreadable. And I have no idea why. I did get it to display white on blue a few times while I was still porting my code from the 4-bit Junebug original code, but things weren't working right yet and all it displayed was gibberish. But at least it was nice white gibberish. ...I would like to respectfully ask for a color change for text presented within this web site. The light gray text on a white background is very washed out. Could we go to dark gray or dark blue, giving more visual contrast? -dblml320Hello I'm a newbie in c++ I would like to enhance the library code a little so it can write white text on black background. This would be useful for making simple buttons (in combination with touch overlay) What I would like to do is to make a new method: void drawstring(uint8_t x, uint8_t line, char *c, uint8_t color); Can someone explain to me how to do that? Best regards Per-JarleHi, I have a standard LCD-display with 2x16 characters. I am using the standard Arduino library for displaying text on in. Now I wanted to know, if it is possible to display an inverted character? Meaning not black character on white background, but white character on black background?? Thanks a lot! SebastianHello! I want to make an Inverted i.e., black background and white text LCD in proteus. I've changed the back color of the LCD in proteus, but I wnat to know how to change the text color for LCD part in proteus. ThanksI have a nice dark Editor window configuration, but I cannot seem to find out how I might change the Output and Project windows to have dark background and white text (green text would be nice in the output window) Anyone have any info on how to do this?So I'm using the Ardruino Alpha 0022 interface for programming and it's great... but! I find that after looking at bright white screens for long periods of time I get really bad head aches. Is anyone aware of how to change the background color to black? I see in some of the Arduino lessons on this site, the background color is black!!! I need to change mine? Anyone able to shed some light on this?? THANKS!!Hi, i've bought the single line detector and the line tracker ,now im experimenting with the single line detector it works fine with black and white .. but the problem is im using it for robocon 07 contest and the background is blue and the line is white , im having some problems for tuning the blue color , is there any solution pleaseHello people, I am working on getting a Nokia (knock off - phillips controller) working with an ATmega32A. The LCD is in normal orientation (connector to the bottom left). I am programming it in AVRstudio 5.1 via an AVR dragon. When i print to the screen, I always have an odd black bar at the bottom of the LCD. sometimes colors will be written to it, but they are usually dark, or inverted. Please ignore the upside-down text, i just fixed that! I am posting some pics to illustrate my problem. The cross-hare is RED in actuality, and the inverted ...Hi Guys, I'm playing around with a 320x240 TFT LCD and a LPC1788 microcontroller (which has a LCD controller built-in). What I've noticed is that when I display white characters, the black background becomes influenced by those characters (grey-ish lines). See the picture attached. Does anyone know, why this happens? Is this a fault of the LCD? Or could this be some signal integrity issue? I've checked over and over again and it's 100% not a software error. Any ideas are welcome, Best regards, GeorgeI've been playing around with various tv text drivers and really like AiGeneric. One problem I have is that my current project uses a 3.5" 4:3 ratio LCD TV that shows all the overscan areas so the display is a bit small from the prop. I also like a text driver that lets me do things in color and changing the background is also a plus. Questions: - is there a way to have such a tv driver use more of the horizontal NTSC area (usually reserved for overscan) without upsetting pixel/color timing? - Does AiGeneric support changing the screen or character background ...On one micromouse site it was mentioned that AC coupling/Capacitor coupling along with synchronous detection can help us prevent the problem of ambient light. Well i can understand the principle behind this method , but i have doubt that suppose i indeed do Ac coupling , then will by sensor be able to detect different background colors while following white line, bcos while detecting synchronously , we will only observe say a rising voltage or falling voltage(depending on circuit) , so white can be detected from black easily, but can white be detected from other background colors ie blue or red ...hello,here i'm facing a problem -how to invert the screen of lcd.suppose the number displyed is in black,background white.have to change to background black number white while pressing the key. am usin [128*64 glcd(with ks0108 controller) at89c51cc03 mc assembly language program not 'c'. \interfacin key with glcd plz suggest me what will be the program code....its on my projectRecently purchased one and the start screen is weird. I understand the ready screen is supposed to be green green, red red blue blue? Mine is, green, red, red, black, black, black, black, black black black black black black black blue blue green. Did something happen to my screen? broken? That aside I guess the main reason I'm writing in is because it seems I have to send it about 6 screens of input before anything is displayed. I found that I can only get the screen to work if i remove the infinate loop at the end of the sketch. This just doesn't ...Hello, After some time I got a 2.8" TFT lcd off ebay I finally hooked it up to a mcu and turned it on. But it seems that I have a problem. The first problem, I can not start up the lcd using a VCI larger then 3V, with all the power registers set to accommodate this powering option. I got it to work with the lcd powered from 3.3 by adding a diode on the VCI line so it drops the voltage by 0.7V. My second problem is that it displays stuff wrong, and here I'll give some some examples. ...Good day everyone, Would anyone know how to save to flash via a touch shield? i mean.. instead of using a IDE to upload a sketch i wanna give the user an ability to do some settings. for example the background of the touch is black, but he can select blue and save, upon which in the next start up, the background would be blue instead of black. My hardware are Arduino Demilove and Arduino Touch Stealth working on a IDE of Arduino_Antipasto. Thanks for reading my post and please guide me on this if you could thanks... any tutorial or example ...Could someone recommend a color scheme for MPLAB, possibly is there any standard or even your preferences when the background color is BLACKRecently purchased a couple of Nokia 6100 boards (LCD-08600) and have finally managed to get it displaying reasonably well. I played for hours with the various setting to try to get the 12-bit Type B mode (xxxxRRRR GGGGBBBB) working but to no avail. All I could get was the 12-bit/2-pixel/3-byte mode instead which bums me out. 256-color mode isn't that interesting to me though I might consider it later... The other bummer is that my PSoC (CY8C29466) can only run at 6MHz when powered at 3V3. This makes things insufferably slow even if I clock the SPI at 12MHz. I still ...I have just completed all the Ardunio electronic and I cannot make my stepper motor drive. All 3 LED's come on and 2 change colour but as soon as I plug in the stepper either the leds go out or the power supply trips . When I put a multi meter accross the outputs I get about 10v over a and b and the same over c and d. I am guessing that I have wired up the stepper motor incorrectly unless anyone else has any other ideas. It is the motor from bits from bytes. I have wired together ...
