Tutorial 1

In this tutorial we will show how do you can define text blocks with Channels values. 
Hi community.
From this topic we start to write for you small tutorial documents the goal of which is help you with using our product.
Lets start from simplest sings, as example from showing text values of Channels(in our SCADA we decided make some different naming — Variables).Please, run designer and click "New Schema" button on main tool bar,new schema will be created. After that, select in ToolBox view Graphics Tools section and activate "text box tool" draw bounds of text object. Then click in Properties View on Text property — you can edit text here, or click on "..." button, and you will see binding editing dialog . Here you can insert channels value inside your texts. But, channels tree at left is clear… You should define some Channels inside current project. Close this dialog and go to Communication->Simulator properties as an example , click Add button and then double click on a cell which you want to edit. For example lets create channel "NewChannel1" and make it as RAMP value and "NewChannel2" with sine value . After that lets try bind this values to our text box. We are going to edit Text property of our text box. To do this — open "Editor tools" section in toolbox  window and select "SelectionTool". Then click on text property in properties view window and press "..." button, in text field type of your text, position cursor inside your text in position where you want to see your channel value, then expand in tree view node Data Simulator and select channel which value you want to see, in text box you will see "{0}" and in list view below text box you will see added full Channel name, also you can select another  Channel and "{1}" will be added . Press Ok. Save your project and click "Run" button from toolbar, runtime will be started. Open schema in runtime, and press run — you will see the Channels values inside your text.

I note that if I click on background option in the properties view I see the… button, but not on the text properties option as the tutorial says.
