How to virtualWrite words?

I have a datastream on a virtualpin set as a string. This in turn is tied to a label widget on the console and app. My code states:

BLYNK_CONNECTED()
{

  Blynk.virtualWrite(V2, "SWIRLTec_V2 SETTINGS");

}

however on the console and app the widget just shows a string of numbers. How should the data stream be set up ?

String.

Pete.

It is set up as String. Tag datastream3

Instead of dumping lots of screenshots into your post, it would be helpful if you used some words too.

Are we to assume that the label displaying “28267” is connected to V2 ?

What about the rest of your code? Does it contain any other virtual writes to V2 ?

Pete.

Yes the tag which displays 28267 is connected to V2. That is the only virtualWrite in the code

Still can’t get this to print words. Is this a limitation on the Blynk2?

I’m printing words (strings) to my app on Blynk2.

Can you explain how?

Got it working. Don’t ask how all I did was delete the datastream and created a new one?! All settings same but now works
