Fixed width font!
« on: July 04, 2011, 08:01:47 AM »
Hi!

While programming a display use a fixed width font to ensure that the text is not moving side to side when you are changing numbers to RPM for example.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monospaced_font

If you use a normal font the numbers will occupy different horizontal space and will move around horizontal as you change numbers or text.

Hi Thomas,

1. Why is it not really possible to right justify strings?
    It is only possible to left justify and tell the number of strings.
    This only works by using fixed width fonts.


2. Where do we get fixed width fonts?
    We need a lot of various font sizes (8,10,12,...26,....)
    and bold, etc....

I suggest, Sauer Danfoss implements a lot of fixed width fonts
and create more possibilities to format the strings.

Bernd

Will there be a possibility to right justify all string formats in further versions?
