I am looking keypad interfacing program. I was reading tutorial Keypad programming for 8051 http://www.8051projects.net/keypad-interfacing/8051-programming.php
I have seen program in link. its not complete program. Also I didn't understand keypad reading functions. I am trying to understand keypad reading in c programming. Please help me..

As a starting point, can you tell us how much of the tutorial example you understand ?
Do you have access to the Proteus program to simulate a circuit ?

I understand logic of keypad but I am having difficulties to implement program. That's the reason first I tried to implement function for keypad reading.

I have simulator software. I can simply add keypad and lcd to 8051 controller.

In tutorial, there is only program for keypad interfacing, no program for both lcd and keypad. I wanted to see sample example for lcd and keypad interfacing program. once I see its working on proteus. I can try to understand the whole program. I have keil compiler and at89c51 controller.

Here is a version of the tutorial that reads a key and prints it to a serial terminal.
There is also a Proteus project to run the program and display the code as a hex value.
In Proteus ->Virtual Terminal, make sure "Hex display mode" is ticked

Please see the below code. I have taken idea from your code to read keypad. there is no error in code but it doesn't print anything on screen.

Change .....
while(1)
{
key = Get_key(); // Get pressed key
LCD_Data(key+1); // Echo the key pressed to LCD
}

to...

while(1)
{
key = Get_key(); // Get pressed key if any
if(key) //only print if a key is pressed
LCD_Data(key+0x60); // Send a printable value to LCD

}

Adding 0x60 ,moves the code it into the printable range a-p

Thanks for your fast feedback. I did replace that portion of code But this code is not working there nothing on the screen

Please take look at the connection . It may be one of the reason

Can you post your Proteus files.
You will need pull-up resistors on port 0.

Thanks I have attached file. Please look at this

Add pull- ups for EN and RS.
change your defines to

sbit E = P0^7; //E pin for LCD
sbit RS = P0^5; //RS pin for LCD

R1,3,4 and 5 are not needed.
