Use the Text block to display text within the logic diagram or in a module column (Setpoint/Miscellaneous, State Generation, or Output Control columns).

  1. Add the Text block as follows:

    • From a module column,

      2. In the Filter box, type Text.
      3. In the Count box, click the up and down arrows to adjust the number of Text blocks you want to add.
      4. Click Finish. The Text block appears in the module column.
    • In Logic View, drag the Text block from the palette to the desired location in the logic diagram.

  2. Double-click the Text block. The Details dialog box appears.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. In the Name field, type a name for the block. The Name label of the Text container block appears in the logic diagram or module column.
