Predefined Label View

Predefined Label View

A predefined label view supports displaying a predefined MCI label on a screen.

General Information

:information_source: A predefined label view is defined with a percent (%) and the characters PL, followed by the view number and then the predefined MCI value in parenthesis. For example: %PL1(VL) to display the Version Label. NOTE: this is an alternate way of placing MCI codes, as the MCI can also be placed on the art page directly with the code. For example %VL. The difference between these is that the PL version can have additional formatting options applied to it.

:information_source: See Predefined Codes in MCI for the list of available MCI codes.

:information_source: See MCI for general information on how to use views and common configuration properties available for them.


Property Description
textStyle Sets the standard (non-focus) text style. See Text Styles in MCI
justify Sets the justification of the MCI value text. Options: left (default), right, center
fillChar Specifies a character to fill extra space in the view. Defaults to an empty space
width Specifies the width that the value should be displayed in (default 3)
textOverflow If the MCI is wider than width, set overflow characters. See Text Overflow below

Text Overflow

The textOverflow option is used to specify what happens when a predefined MCI string is too long to fit in the width defined.

:information_source: If textOverflow is not specified at all, a predefined label view can become wider than the width if needed to display the MCI value.

:information_source: Setting textOverflow to an empty string textOverflow: "" will cause the item to be truncated if necessary without any characters displayed

:information_source: Otherwise, setting textOverflow to one or more characters will truncate the value if necessary and display those characters at the end. i.e. textOverflow: ...
