To select the Label when using the Architect or Genius envrinoments simply click on Graphics and then click on Add Widget.
The Label widget is the top widget under the Static tab. Click on Label then click on Confirm.
The label will be placed on the graphic representation of the TIMI display at the default co-ordinates with default Text, Font, Colours and Background Type
You can now change the Property Values to get the desired look of the Label widget.
Left and Top Property
The Left and Top property can be changed by entering the value of a known Left and Top coordinate.
Or the Label can be positioned by simply clicking on it and dragging it into the desired position.
The Width and Height properties are shown for reference only and updated when the Text, Font or Font size are altered.
The Text property can be changed by clicking on the area of the text in the Property Value or double click the Value to highlight the entire text and then type in the new text.
Clicking outside of the Text Property will set the new text.
Font Style Property
The TIMI display has 3 system fonts to choose from and can be selected from the drop-down box.
Each font can have its size changed by altering the multiplier Value in the Font Size Property.
The Foreground Colour property will set the colour of the text part of the label only. This can be altered by simply clicking on the Foreground Colour Property value and the Colour selector will appear.
There are many ways to choose the right colour by simply clicking the RGB colour.
And then clicking on a shade.
Or, alternatively, you can enter the values directly in various ways by selecting the required format.
Background type allows you to choose if the background for the individual characters of the text is drawn. By selecting a background colour and choosing Background Type OPAQUE, it can be used to highlight the whole text area and to separate it from whatever the label may be placed on top of. Setting the property to TRANSPARENT will draw just the text element only and the background colour will be ignored.
The Background colour can be altered in the same way as the Foreground Colour by using the Colour Selector.
