There are a few different forum questions and feature requests that I think would be possible to solve if we had added some string handling functions, for example comparison of text channel values:
and conversion from integer to text
Anyone else who thinks this could be a good idea?
Customer support service by UserEcho
I also would like the ability to have an Array of text or being able to extract text from a file. This is for primarily for error handling. I have devices with a very large number of possible errors. More than what the state machine can handle (+ it is not very flexible).
I can sort my error or create Error log by number but then customer has to find code in instruction manual.
So the idea would be to be able to display a text based on an index. If the Error file was external then it could be easier to deal with and may not tax the memory? A Spreadsheet could be ideal thus allowing us to maintain the different languages or at least two dimensional array.
As a comment on this post, in IQANscript does have text compare.
I run into the same issue. I would like to convert 'Project Version' text value into a number so I can send it via J1939 to our telematics system. I cannot.
Have you considered sending it as text, using TPOUT?
I must match a defined bit mapping, which does not allow so many bytes.
Each character consumes a whole byte.
I have 5 bytes of text and need to fit it into 2 bytes to transmit.
