  • String Changes Background Color

    I would like to have a string object with BLACK text on a YELLOW background. When I send dynamic text or select a static message, the background changes to a light blue. This is, of course, using ViSi-Genie. The display is an uLCD-28PT running PmmC v4.4. This doesn't occur with a WHITE background. I haven't tried any other colors. Is there a way to get this to work?

    Hello jpmargis,

    If you just want to print the string "HELP ME!!" on a yellow background, you can simply make a static text with these options:
    COLOR: YELLOW
    Transparent : NO
    Font (COLOR) : BLACK

    Or if you want to make a dynamic string, then you can use a string widget with the following options:
    BGColor: YELLOW
    FGColor: BLACK

    The output of both string widget types are shown in the image.

    You can also read this appnote to know more about strings:

    If none of these works in your case, you can attach your project here so I can simulate and find out the problem of your project.

    Best regards,

        I loaded an old PmmC and then did an auto update to the latest PmmC and the problem no longer exists!
