Scripting tools to allow display of text on a prim: XyText 1.5 , XyzzyText, XyyyyzText, XyzzyText-UTF8, ZZText, VariText


XyText 1.5 is a variation of XyText allowing up to 10 characters on a prim. All scripts are included.

Also see XyzzyText for a much more efficient alternative for larger displays.

Additionally refer to ZZText and XyzzyText-UTF8 for using International characters in your boards.

For a 1 texture numbers only refer to NumPad.

Note: For new scripters/builders: Text for this script is displayed in the reverse order by which objects were linked. Breaks in the lines for multiline scripts are possible using the '\n' for newline, but a multiline linked object does not detect this. Theoretically, adding a message which communicates relative axis information (traditionally, z axis) could be used to allow for line breaks.

Example Use

// XyText Message Map.
integer SET_LINE_CHANNEL    = 100100; //for multi-cell spanning text
integer DISPLAY_STRING      = 204000;
integer DISPLAY_EXTENDED    = 204001;
integer REMAP_INDICES       = 204002;
integer RESET_INDICES       = 204003;
integer SET_CELL_INFO       = 204004;
 
 
llMessageLinked(LINK_SET, DISPLAY_STRING, "text to display", "");
