Attached is a (LabVIEW2011) VI with a ring-control that requires a font called "Ti92PlusPc". The font includes a delta symbol but the font is "square-ish" and seems to be uniformly spaced.
Is there a way to have the delta-character in a ring-control with another font (like Ariel)?
Solved! Go to Solution.
the ring text does not allow different font for different part of the string. you have few options:
- use font that has both symbols and text characters (kind of like weddings + Arial)
- use words rather than symbols
- use picture ring if the ring text is fixed
- use x-control or something similar to mimic a ring control appearance.
While the link you supplied was about updating string controls (which happen to support multiple fonts...), I _think_ your answer was correct: what I want to do - to embed symbols in a ring-control - can be accomplished with Unicode. In fact, here's a link about Unicode and specifically working with the ring-control.
...so, THANK YOU!
