I found a workaround!

Use a network-shared array of strings instead and assign it to the property "List Items" of a List Box indicator:



Example code here:

Hey Richard,

Thank you for your additional input. As described in the first two posts, thib_fr had no problem with line breaks on Data Dashboard for Android. Only the iOS version was problematic (but a workaround exists, as I described).


I am not sure if your posting is a question or an additional suggestion.


I did not use any html tags on my code (should be <br /> by the way in xhtml, having the slash at the end). I don't own any apple hardware anymore, therefore cannot test if this would make a difference. My gut feeling however is that it does not.


I attached my demo project from a year ago to this posting, could be more handy than the snipped above. Disclaimer: It contains one OpenG VI.
