On a supergenie page I have some Text Objects displaying numeric variable tags, and have also set the Format property to ###EU, but in Runtime I do not see the engineering units for this tag. 

Make sure that all the variable tags you are trying to display have a format and engineering unit set in the variable tags form. If you are happy with this format, then in the Text Object's Format property simply select <default>. Otherwise you can change the display value from numeric to string, then in the String Expression box use a conversion function (eg RealToStr) to convert the tag's value to a string. To the end of the string simple add a space and the engineering units.


RealToStr(?REAL 1?, 10, 0) + " deg"

CIT has confirmed this to be a problem in Citect for Windows version 5.XX. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
