Hello, Noob at programming here, especially HMI's. I've done some amount of Ladder logic but this is my first ever building an application with an HMI; and also my first Unitronics experience. I'm trying to have a field on the HMI screen be a status box with variable text messages displayed. I was able to do this successfully using the Binary Text / Switch function, but I need more than two states or messages, probably 3 or 4, and the program will select the correct message depending on what step in the program the system is in and the status of some of the inputs. I'm guessing what i need to use is the "List of texts by Pointer" box, and have looked at the help menu for that, and it more or less makes sense, I will need to write the text in the boxes with the line numbers and have a Memory Integer bit (MI) that will call up the various messages based on the value of the MI. So how do I cause the MI to have these values? I searched on MI and not finding much there, other than a brief description of what the Memory Integer is. Was hoping to find some sample programs that I could look at the code and figure it out from there but haven't fount as yet, maybe I'm not looking in the right place. thanks much, Jeff
