Display Text

This function block is used for the visualization of text values.


The parameter dialog can be used to change several preferences.

The size of the function block and the offset (if needed) can be defined. The font and the colors for the display (text, background, and frame) can be selected. The number of digits and the general display mode can be determined.

*This function block normally only uses the TEXT data type, but other signals can be connected to the input, too. If no TEXT signals are used, the data type will be converted. In this case the user is asked to specify the offset and the number of digits for the length of the text (without terminating 0).


This function block has no corresponding target code. During online observation the values are read and represented cyclically.
