Pada kali ini diberikan contoh program untuk membuat aplikasi menggunakan Arduino Uno dan LCD Keypad Shield.

Program yang dapat dicoba adalah:

/*************************************************************************************

  Mark Bramwell, July 2010

  This program will test the LCD panel and the buttons.When you push the button on the shield´╝î
  the screen will show the corresponding one.

  Connection: Plug the LCD Keypad to the UNO(or other controllers)
