Hi Guys
simple question here....

i am trying to use "append text" to show something like " the variable is :" varX but have it dont every tick because varX is tilt reading....but it keeps appending the new reading onto the old one and so on. i obviously want the varX to be replaced rather than keep appending...does that make sense?

thanks
Dan

It would be

"The variable is: "&varX

It sounds like you want to set the text to "the variable is: " & varX
So each time you call this the varX will be replaced with the new varX.
Is that what you are trying to do?
