I have an application where I am displaying production information on a large TV in a factory floor. The managers want to be able to display text messages as well, and this is where I have gotten stuck… What I can’t find is a way to make the text wrap around so it stays in the text box / text area. At the moment, no matter what size I make the box / area, I only get one line of text, and part of the text is outside the box. I tried to manually break the line by adding the ASCII character 13 (Alt+0013) as well as trying ‘\n’ and ‘\r’, but neither was accepted in the text box gadget (Alt+13 was ignored, and the other apeared as text).
For my application I need to have dynamic text, so they can change it and display what the need, so I can’t pre-format the text as I don’t know what will be in the text box ahead of time.
I notice that if I add static text in the properties box of the text area gadget, then I can have multiple lines if I insert them manually (hit enter while adding text), although it removes extra ones to remove any blank lines.
So the gadget can handle multiple lines, the question is how to get that into a dynamic text coming from a tag…
Also, it doesn’t seem to wrap text though, as far as I can tell.
