I'm looking for tips on how I can allow an end user to change a text box from the PLC. My program has a system name on the top of the HMI as a text box, currently "SYSTEM 1". I would like the user to be able to change this to anything they would like. Ex: "TOP SYSTEM", "BOB". Currenlty, the only way I can think to do this would be create a numeric data table which assigns each letter a number, then let the user enter the numeric, and have the program convert the numeric to text. Ex: If A=01, B=02, C=03... Z=26, [space]=27 User inputs: 021221052713010308091405 Program Outputs: BLUE MACHINE
