I am trying to make use of the LCD on the KC705 board. Is there an example file where i can use that will allow me to do this? The user guide for the KC705 board was not very beginner friendly.
If anyone knows of a documentation that guides you step by step on how to do this it will be greatly appreciated.

Try this: http://bfy.tw/tUB
But more seriously, how to you indend to interface with the LCD? Using Verilog, VHDL or Microblaze SDK C?

I would suggest learning VHDL basics first. Start with the free book Free Range VHDL
In order to "talk" to the LCD in VHDL you will need to implement a finite state machine. The other way is to use Vivado to create a block design that couples the MicroBlaze soft processor to the GPIO connected to the LCD then implement the rest in C using the SDK (which is easier in my opinion) (see image).
If you are new to VHDL and digital design I would suggest blinking an LED first.
