Easy: Auto Update "Active TCP" Box in Move Screen / Robot

Auto Update Active TCP Window in Move Screen / Robot whilst program is running.

The Active TCP window should update when the Active TCP is changed while a program is running.

Mostly used for Debugging. Currently, while a program is running, if you click on the Move tab the Active TCP is displayed. It is static so it does not update when the TCP is updated in a running program. In order to see the updated Active TCP you need to click OUT of the Move screen then back in and it will be updated.

It makes sense because both the Tool Position and Joint Position windows auto-update at a very fast refresh rate. Adding the Active TCP will not affect process time nor resources but would be a huge help in seeing what a program is doing.
