Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Now that I have the LCD working, I am trying to proceed! I want to display the date, time, temperature that I had working in the VGA mode.

I'm having trouble coming to grips with the CTRLVAL(#x) command/function?

I have made a DISPLAYBOX #1, so assume the CTRLVAL(#1) will go there.

> ctrlval(#1)=12.4   from the manual (P85)
Error : Expected a string

> mytemp=tempr(1)
> ctrlval(#1)=mytemp
Error : Expected a string
> print mytemp
17
