Demonstration

This demonstration will show you how to use Grove - LCD RGB Backlight, we need a Seeeduino V3.0 else.

Hardware Installation

Hardware instration is very easy, because there's an I2C Grove in Seeeduino,
so what we need to do is connect it to I2C Grove via a Grove cable.

Download Code and Upload

You can download the demo code in github, click here, then extract it to anyware.

If you have some problem with this step, please refer to Getting Start With Seeeduino


there is a Hello World example in the library, open it, and upload to Seeeduino V3.0.
then you can see "Hello world" on the first row, and second row will print the number of second since reset.

Change Color of Backlight

One of Grove - LCD RGB Backlight's most important feature is: you can change the color backlight, and it's a very simple thing, just use the folowing function:

void setRGB(int r, int g, int b);

Then let's try a Red backlight.

Modify the code about color into :

const int colorR = 255;
const int colorG = 0;
const int colorB = 0;

Upload the code again, woo, see the backlight turn to Red? Then why not try another color? Whatever you like.
