State Machine Channel and TP

Would it be possible in future IQAN 6 releases to expand capabilities of TP such that we could tie in MAC or sensor values directly into text parameter itself?  Please see attached picture.

We could then take this TP and have it displayed. It would be even better if text colors would change based on SMC in this case Smart Cylinder Sensor SMC

You can connect the State Machine Channel directly to a value control on the display page. 

By naming the states in the way you want them to be displayed, this can eliminate the need for the TP-channel. 

If you want to have the channel name included without having multiple value controls, then a TFC Text Formatting Channel could be used.

For an idea of changing colors without duplicating overlapping value controls, there is an idea here: https://forum.iqan.se/communities/1/topics/129-lamp-feature-for-lables
