Show value in DP always flush right
« on: March 16, 2011, 10:29:35 AM »

My problem is, that if the value in the display are changing the position also will change.
With %5d the value will move on both side.
With %d the value will move to the rigth.

I saw in the DP200 with the EIC that there are value which are moving to the left.
How can I implement, that my value is fixed on the right an if I rise the value it will move the the left.

Thank you for your help.

You need to have Monotype fonts (same width on all letters and numbers) on the value you want to show and use %5d.

In DP200 program Sauer-Danfoss is using Aero-font for the text and fixed Aero font (monotype) on the values.

Hi there.

If you use %05d the units not in use will be filled with zeros such as 0017.
This will at least stop the fonts jumping around.

Try using %-5d, That should left justify the number.

Hi,

which fonts are you using (fixed size)?

It would be nice, to be able to right justify letters.
