TEXT

------ Command; group 1 ---------------

TEXT....command to transmit up to 40 characters of text which will be printed near the top of the EARTH output and in PHOTON, for instance:

TEXT(CALCULATION OF STEADY FLOW IN A BOX

A single colon in the text string will not be treated as a delimiter for substitution of character variables.

Note that more information can be transmitted to the result file by use of the RDQ1 facility.

See GREX3, Group 1 for details.


TEXT

--------------------------------------- Photon Help ----

T[ext]....is used to plot text strings on the screen. Enter a text string of up to 76 characters, then press <Return>, and the cursor should appear. The cursor marks the position of the base of the left-most character. When the cursor is correctly positioned, press one of the following keys:


     'C' - plot this string and continue in text mode

     'D' - ignore current string and continue in text mode

     'M' - move last string to new position and continue

     'P' - change to colour specified in text string (2-15)

     'R' - replace last string with new text and continue

     'S' - change to text size specified in text string (1-4)

     'X' - ignore current string and exit from text mode

     'U' - plot and underline current text string, and

           continue.

Any other character will plot the string and exit from text mode.

TEXT can be used within USE files to perform non-interactive text displaying. In this mode, the USE file contains an extra line after the text to be plotted, containing the position and control character, eg.

UTEXT
1 (character size 1)
Line of text to be displayed
1000. 2000. U

The above sequence in a USE file is equivalent to using a TEXT command interactively, positioning the cursor at (1000.,2000.) and pressing the 'U' key. All coordinates are given in PHOTON Internal Coordinates (PICs).

TEXT

--------------------------------------- Photon Help ----

[Text] is used to write a text string on the screen at a position you specify. Once this button has been pressed, the text sub-menu will appear. You can use the sub menu to write, replace, move, delete, underline, resize or colour the text.

If REPLAY is in CLEAR mode, [Exit] in the text sub-menu will cause the screen to redraw, otherwise PHOTON simply quits from the text menu and returns to the replay menu.

[Text] activates the text sub-menu to set a new text element to be drawn.
