Adding Text Descriptions to a Field

This is an optional feature and will only be available if it has been licensed in the key file.

Acquire must be in Config mode to perform these steps.

Acquire allows text values to be associated with the numeric values that are returned from flow computer fields. eg 1 = “Open”, 2 = “Closed” etc.

Text descriptions can be added to a flow computer field or a calculation custom field.

1. Click the ‘Edit’ button next to the text description field

The Text Descriptions window will be displayed:

2. Click the ‘Add’ button

The Text Description window will be displayed:

2014-01-30 11.55.58 Screenshot

3. Enter the ‘Field Value’

The Field Value is the numeric value from the flow computer.

4. Enter the ‘Field Description’

The Field Description is the text description associated with the Field Value.

5. Click the ‘OK’ button

The text description will be added to the Text Descriptions list:

In the above example, the text “Open” will be used in place of the value “1” whenever the field is displayed in Acquire.

Field Values do not need to be sequential.

If a Text Description has not been defined, then the numeric value will be used.

Editing a field with a Text Description will use a popup menu with the Text Descriptions listed.

6. Click the ‘OK’ button

The text description(s) will be saved.
