Grey out text
Posted 17 February 2012 - 02:22 PM
I have a bit of a problem I can't think of a way to solve (other than the obvious solution which I don't want to do).
Basically, can anybody think of a way of displaying a text string that has colouring corresponding to its state. In other words I don't want to change the text of the string, just want to make it "bright" when the boolean state is true, and "lightly greyed" when it is false, see the picture for an example of the "lightly greyed" case.
Now, of course this can be done using VI server calls to the text colour, but I want to avoid that. The reason is I would like this to be part of a bigger cluster with other things, and I want to just, from the BD, write the value to the indicator, so this precludes property nodes.
It is totally not a deal-breaker if I have to go down the property node route, just curious more than anything I suppose.
Can anybody think of how to do this without using property nodes?
