Hi recently purchased a Dothat, teaching myself python partly by taking things apart and re-making them with the dothat.
I started out by making a small script to operate the dothat as a torch. This works but I then wanted to make it operate and show a countdown timer while the lights were lit.
This is what I have, it is adapted from a basic countdown script form a few google searches. It works in the IDLE using print in place of lcd.write
In my nativity I thought I could swap out print for lcd.write this approach works in the final “goodbye” line of code which does print to the screen but the count down does not.
Please be gentle to those of you who know what you are doing im sure this is a very simple question of improper syntax … possibly but im lost all the same.
