Reece C. Posted September 24, 2013 Share Posted September 24, 2013 Some of you may have read my previous post. I have a facility, with many functions. I wish to know what is going on. So I have computers posted at each process in the facility, and they tell the main computer what state that process is in. an example: Computer 1 (it is posted at power generation.) rednet.open("left") while true do shell.run("clear") if rs.getInput ("back") then rednet.send(21,"Engins: ON") else rednet.send(21,"Engins: OFF") end os.pullEvent("redstone") end And the main computer receives this and displays it on a monitor. rednet.open("top") while true do id,EngStatus = rednet.receive() mon = peripheral.wrap("back") mon.clear() mon.setCursorPos(5,5) mon.write(EngStatus) end Sorry no spoilers. But obviously I have a very large monitor, to show lots of statistics. But I am up agenst a road block. Because I can only display one thing at a time. When new info comes in it replaces what is already on the screen. Also, using the "setCursorPos" is universal, and not just for one piece of text. I need to be able to show many statistics, in different places on the monitor, that, of course, will be changing all the time. I have looked at menu tutorials, but that isn't what I needed. Can someone help me? And if you need more information about my facility to get a better idea of how to help, please let me know. Thanks. PS: If anyone has a code(s) for something like this, please feel free to post them here. It may be all I need, because I can use it as a sort of template, and elaborate on it.
