Display a string on a screen?
« on: October 26, 2009, 01:20:59 PM »
Here I am working on some screens and VB code related to tools...

Here is the issue: I have in hand the string that is the tool description - and I want to display it in a fixed area on a screen....

I don't see a way to do this....   Conceptually, I think I want a "DRO for string values".
As long as I'm wishing, being able to select it and use it to get input would also be nice.

Is there a way to do this that I just have missed?

Does anyone have a clever way to accomplish this?

Hi all,
I found an answer to my own question - VB call SetUserLabel  for those that may be wondering - this handles output.
For input, it's back to a dialog box.
