Default Display plugin variable as text using what means?

Naive question for many of you but I'm stumped - I want to display a variable's value on-screen as read-only text. I tried ICaptionControl but that displays the control's normalized value (0-1) - I want to display the actual variable value as used in the plugin code (i.e., 0-2500, etc.).

So I think I need to use ITextControl - but that function requires a "constant char" type - how do I send it a VARIABLE character?

Seems I would also need an "integer/float to character" step in here somewhere to convert the number to text but I don't see any functions (in WDL-OL) that do that.

Displaying numbers is a common GUI element in plugins - what's the approach to doing this in WDL-OL?

You can try cast it (char*)variable, (char)variable or something similar, but should not be considered as a permanent fix, if it works.
Or look how the control you want is made and make your own control that fits.

Code:
ITextControl::SetTextFromPlug(YourVariableText)
does what you want. I have not used it, however.

Thanks all.

I actually found exactly what I was looking for in another thread here: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread....+iText+control
