(grtext [flag text])

Write text on the status line.

This function allows you to put text in the status line or the coordinate status area. The flag determines where the text is placed:

Flag Meaning
-1 Status Line
-2 Coordinate Status Line

The text is a string. If the string is too long for the space provided, it is truncated.

If coordinate status is turned on (the Coords command is set to 1 or 2), the text previously entered into this field is overwritten with new coordinates as soon as the mouse is moved.

You can use the grtext function without any arguments to remove the text from the coordinate status line field when COORDS is turned off or from the status line field.


Code Returns
(grtext -2 "This is mode -2") This is mode -2
Places text in coordinate area.
(grtext) nil
Clears text from status line
