After doing all the transitions that you will want to,you can check step by step result or the a sigle click excuton option. just can copy the values that needs to be sent to your PORT to get those transition on your LCD using you own port control software or your program in C or VB etc, and use it in your own code Be it your computer based project that involves LCD or your Microcontroller project.
