I would like to be able to insert text at the top of my display as a title. When adding buttons or a trend i have created an instance of a ButtonDefinition or a TrendFormat. There doesnt appear to be an equivalent for text and setting Text.SetName("Title") doesnt appear to change it. At the moment when i have added the Text to the display it reads "Sample Text"


My code:


            Dim oTitleText As PBSymLib.Text
            Dim oSymbol_text1 As PBObjLib.Symbol

            oSymbol_text1 = newwindow.Symbols.Add(PBObjLib.pbSYMBOLTYPE.pbSymbolText)
            oTitleText = oSymbol_text1
            oSymbol_text1.Font.Size = 20
            oSymbol_text1.Top = 15000
