Hi this time my question is the following:

How can I asign more than ome byte in· run time to a symbol ex:

value := string("·· ")
t := strsize

In this case value should have 3 bytes asigned

How can I do the same without using the string command?

value := string(" ") assigns the address of the string, not the value of it.

You can assign 3 characters like this: value := constant("A" | ("B" << 8) | ("C" << 16))

This puts the "A" as the first byte (lowest in memory) and a zero value as the last byte (highest in memory) in the LONG variable 'value'.

If you call 'dsp.str(@value)', then you'll see the characters "ABC" on the display. STRSIZE(@value) would be 3.

you can use a dat section

value byte 32,32,32,0
