Adafruit I2C HT16K33 7-Segment x 4 Display

I am looking for a XOD Patch to send and display digital values on a 7-Segment display using an Adafruit I2C HT16K33 backpack. I have one communicating and displaying bars but not numbers. However it takes 10 bytes for me to send 4 characters. That seems a little strange. I can also successfully send single bytes commands like Display ON/OFF, Dimming, and Blink. I just can’t get it to display integers.
