How can I plant operation text in my device?


    May 10 2022 | 6:16 am
    Hello I planted some information about my device at the 'info view text' field in the inspector win, but it is to long and when I hover my mouse upon the corresponding object I can see on the Live info view win just a small part of it, with no option to scroll or maximize the window. Does the Live info view window limited to a certain amount of lines? I tried also to use the [text] object and let the user bang a buttonto open a file with my text that has been saved to the same folder where my device is located, it work but when I freeze Devise to pack it to one file and re-open it there is no text - it looks like the text file is not attached to the device at the freezing process like I think it does with other objects that use files like pic and presets or even [coll] object that can be packed to Freese Device with its data. Any ideas about my two attempts? Thanks ahead!

      You can try to use hint text which appears when the mouse hovers on the object. Look for it in the object Inspector. You can have the user switch on/off hint text at runtime if needed. You can add a text file manually in project settings before freezing the device. Objects can load the file by using the file name without any path.

      Thank you for your answer and sorry to delay with mine.. 1. Of course I now about hints but didn't now that I can switch on/off hint text at runtime - how exactly can I do it? 2. I still need the text window option, but from some reason it doesn't work, maybe I do something wrong.. Will you please take a look at the short demonstration clip with that link? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1opjW137jIIhL9dKNZEPlkE-n6ekrsn8q/view?usp=sharing Thanks!!

      Hi, regarding the file you have 2 possibilities. 1. Share it with the user as a separate file together with the device. In the device get the path of your device and look for the file at that location. 2. What you probably want to do, before you press the freeze button:
      open project setting
      open project setting
      add existing file, then freeze
      add existing file, then freeze
      Regarding the hints you have also 2 possibilities (which you would have found quickly with a search in the forum): 1. Setting/resetting the hint attr of objects
      2. Using the [hint] object
