I have a CODESYS structured text STRING-type variable foo. I want to display it in Groov View. When I go find it in Groov View Build mode’s Gadget Pallette > Tags list, I see foo : STRING : R/W. When I click on the other variables (INT16s, Booleans, Floats), I see a list of available gadgets that I can drag into the preview space. However, when I click on foo, I don’t get any options.
I’ve also tried creating a Text Area gadget from the Gadgets menu, but when I select my tag in the Data Source menu, it continues to show “No tag selected”.
Is it possible to display a string variable from CODESYS in Groov View? What am I missing?
I switched my variable over to a WSTRING, but I’m still not seeing it.
The formatting documentation states, * For non-numeric data, a '#' character will simply serve to mark the location of the dynamic content.
However, when I include a #, I get the error The gadget's tag is a different data type than what the server or device provided. Details: The string is configured as a INT16, but the type returned from the server is class java.lang.String
This one seems simple, but I’m not sure what else to try. Any tips?
