Im sorry if this question seems incredibly Stupid to you. I believe I red the Documentation carefully enough but I am 100% clueless, so maybe I dont understand what some functions mean and I misinterpret them.

I am wondering because I think its a very basic function but I cannot seem the explanation for it, which doesnt make sense.

I want to use the Values stored in each Variable in programs following the Code in the Loop.

Basically I am building an Oven right now. I want to set the Temperature with the LCD1602 DfRobot (with the lcd menu I already created which works flawlessly). The Arduino should then compare the Sensor Temp Values with the Value which I set with the tcMenu but I cannot find any function on how to read the value/use it in following programs.

As of now, I only found:
To get the maximum value for any item

int maxVal = menuItem.getMaximumValue();

(like menuItem.getValue(example); ????? )

I would be very glad if anyone can help me figure this out or atleast point me in the right direction.

Hi there,

Yes, it is very easy to get the values that are stored in menu items. Each menu item type has a link to their associated documentation here:


For example, the Analog menu item section describing how to access it from your code is documented here:


You can also access all the menu-item specific documentation pages from the designer UI, at the top of the properties for any menu item there is a link to the online documentation.
