Why doesn't the VGA Panel correctly display the alarm-texts I have defined in the PCD (containing umlauts)?

FAQ #101433

In case alarming-texts are defined in a IL (*.src) or a Fupla file it is possible to display these alarming-texts on a VGA Panel, but specific char (as umlauts, swedish chars and others) do not appear correctly on the VGA Panel (which is equipped with FW 1.12.11).

 

Symptom
In case alarming-texts are defined in a *.src file (or a *.fup file) it is possible to display these alarming-texts on a VGA Panel, but specific char (as umlauts, swedish chars and all ANSI characters with code higher than 127) appear incorrectly on the VGA Panel (which is equipped with FW 1.12.11).
When displaying the project on e.g. the Internet Exploerer, the characters are displayed correctly.

Reason
This is a problem which concerns the firmware 1.12.11 of the PCD7.D4xxV MB Panels (VGA MB Panels). Even you have added an extra font file (like the "Arial Extended") the specific char are incorrectly displayed on the VGA Panel, if the alarming texts are defined in the PCD/User-Program (and not in a *.csv file).

Solution
This problem is solved in firmware version 1.12.17 for the VGA MB Panels. Please update the firmware of the concerned device.
