Variables can be directly displayed in an operator graphic using a graphic primitive. Add one of the basic display elements, eg inputfield or textfield to your graphic. Browse for the variable.

Variables are properties of the Object they belong to (ie the program, the function block or the control module).
Graphic Element aspects are reusable solutions that make it faster and easier to use prebuilt elements on your graphics. The aspect belongs to the parent object where your variable is declared.
You can use an digital Function Block if the variable it's BOOL data type, or an analog Function Block if it´s FLOAT data type, anyway, depends of the data type of the variable.
I use it, especially when I need to audit the variable and have logs and trends.
I hope be helpful.
