So to display urdu characters we must know about how to make custom characters and display it on character 16×2 lcd. Displaying self made custom characters on lcd requires knowledge about internal structure of lcd. To display custom characters like urdu you should know about lcd CG-RAM,data & command registers.
A good and perfect tutorial to understand the internal structure of lcd CG(character generated) ram is given below. Since its very important and lengthy topic so it is not possible to explain it here. I recommend you to please take the below tutorial other wise you will be unable to understand the project code below.
After displaying first eight urdu characters next eight are build in CG-RAM and then displayed on lcd. This process repeats until the last character is displayed. After last character the lcd starts from beginning and starts displaying urdu characters from beginning.
Note: Lcd first line continuously display “Urdu Characters!” and the urdu characters are displayed on the second line. Each urdu character is displayed on lcd with one matrix gap from other. Since 16×2 lcd has 16 coulombs so 8 characters with one matrix sepration from others are perfectly displayed on the lcd second line.
