2d symbol with width x depth parameters as text

Hello! I'm creating a 2d symbol for a parking stall and I would like for the text on the symbol to show the width x depth of the stall based on the dimensions entered for the object. Is this possible? Please see attached.

You just have to convert the number to text.

Search the gdl reference guide for STR.

You can do that but I would code it directly in to textbox like this:

 

paragraph		"AC_PRG_2" 1,0,0,0,1
    STR{2} ("%cm",a)+"x"+STR{2} ("%cm",b)
endparagraph

 

no need to add extra variable. 

However if you really want it in a variable you still need to use STR{2} and also VALUES/VALUES{2} and then link that variable in text:

 

values "STALL_SIZE",STR{2} ("%cm",a)+"x"+STR{2} ("%cm",b)
