The LCD Panel is a thin panel that takes an entire block face and can display a variety of messages and textures that can be displayed constantly or triggered by the Programmable Block, Sensor, Timer Block, or any other block capable of triggering.
To access its settings, select it and pressing the 'T' or 'K' key. Selecting it and pressing "K", the "K-menu" is entered. The panel's title and text can be made public, private, or a combination of both. Textures applied can be selected from a list or custom textures can be selected. Textures can be set to rotate on a timer, changing from one to the next. GPS coordinates shown in the GPS format in the text panel will appear in the GPS and can be activated (=shown on HUD).

The LCD Panel could be accessed with the programmable block as
IMyTextPanel. It could work in ´Texture Mode´ in which the selected textures are shown or the ´Text Mode´ in which the text is shown. The following methods are available:
||Writes value to the public text field. If append is true then the value is appended to the end of the current text.|
||Returns the current content of the public text field.|
||Sets the public title to value. If append is true then the value is appended to the end of the current title.|
||Returns the current public title.|
||Adds an image/texture to the end of the list of selected textures. If no image/texture with the name id exists the texture ´Offline´ is added instead.|
||Adds the images/textures to the end of the list of selected textures. If no image/texture with the name id exists the texture ´Offline´ is added instead.|
