# Display Arrows and 2D Text

Solution Partner Pioneer

I'm looking for a way to create an arrow with text label as in UF_DISP_conehead() but as a UDO

I created a UDO to create the stick-based arrow and text label using UF_DISP_display_polyline() and UF_DISP_display_text()

It does indeed create the arrow with the text, however, the text is 3-dimensional not parallel to the screen as in UF_DISP_conehead().

I can live with my stick-based arrow, but the 3-D text is a tough sell.

Is there any way to get the arrow/text from UF_DISP_conehead() in a UDO?  Or just force UF_DISP_display_text() to draw parallel to the screen?

You could consider using UF_DISP_display_temporary_text() instead. This displays paralell to the screen. But it will disappear when the view is refreshed...

Thanks for the reply. Sorry, I meant to mention UF_DISP_display_temporary_text() and UF_DISP_labeled_conehead()

But I do need it as a UDO, both the arrows and the text.
