Possibilities of text on screen / popups

I know how to send text to the log from RTDE, but I would like to create a popup screen that shows messages in much bigger text than the log.

Right now I work with the RTDE-interface and would like to stay there as long as possible, so are there any possibilities?

Another way would be to write text to a file from my rtde-loop. Then create a “normal Tkinter gui loop” that reads text from this file and show it on the display. Is this possible?

Would I mess up polyscope?

Both this loops I’m planning to start with Crontab and “@reboot…” if it works.

Never mind, I figured it out myself by using the dashboard server (it also worked with the primary client interface)…
The only thing I can’t do is to add a picture to the popup. Is this possible?
I will still give it a try later on in my development with trying to encode an image file with base64 (or 32)

The various popup options using respectively Dashboard or URScript (i.e. via client interfaces) does only support text-based popup.
