The Customer Display Control File edit screen displays three columns:

Column 1 contains a description of the message line and is for reference only.

Column 2 contains the amount of time (in seconds) to pause after the message is displayed. Normally set to 0, the Pause function is mainly used for the Sales Tax or the Total messages so the Customer can read the Sales Tax. Other message lines generally do not require a pause.

Column 3 contains the message and supports up to 100 characters. With the exception of ASCII characters and variables, the exact text entered appears on the Customer Display.

ASCII characters are enclosed in braces {#}, support numbers from 0 to 255, and typically include special characters for controlling the display. For example, {13} sends a Carriage Return.

Variable data are enclosed in brackets [#,#,J]. The characters inside the brackets represent transaction data such as Line Item information, Payments information, and Totals.

The first # = a Field ID number.

The second # = the number of spaces in which to display the information.

The third character defines the justification within display area: L = Left, R = Right, C= Center.

For example, [5,9,R] displays the Line Item's Price, in a field 9 characters wide, right justified.
