Revision: 1.0

Strings in groov View may contain extra text at the end


Applies To:

groov View running on:

  • GRV-EPIC-PR1
  • GROOV-AR1, GROOV-AR1-BASE, GROOV-AR1-SNAP
  • GROOV-AT1, GROOV-AT1-SNAP
  • GROOV-SVR-WIN, GROOV-SVR-WIN-BASE, GROOV-SVR-WIN-SNAP

Versions Affected:

R1.3.0 to current for GRV-EPIC-PR1
R4.1a to current for all others listed


Symptoms:

After writing a string to an I/O Unit tag, if the newer string is shorter than the previous string, the end of the previous string may still be visible. For example, if the tag starts out with the string "Hello world", and then "BYE" is written to the tag, it will display "BYElo world".

Workaround:

Pad the newer string with spaces to clear out the previous string.

Resolution:

Opto 22 has resolved this issue and will include the fix in an upcoming release.
