Refer to the manual with the LCD you are using, it will have a SDK/documentation which you can program with and send data to display.

+5... usually the documentation comes with the microcontroller... just need to read up on it (or look it up in the manufacturer's website).

True, the LCD display also have pin outs and protocols.

Thanks Albert!

It really depends on the LCD device you have (above all on its controller, if it have any).
Many LCDs use the HD44780 (or equivalent) controller, if this is also your case then Google may really help you: interfacing a PIC microcontroller with a HD44780[^].
