Challenge #250: Give Me A Sign

A solution to last week's challenge can be found heremarquee_box.jpg

 

This week's challenge was submitted by @kelly_gilbert   - Thank you for your submission!

 

I bought a lighted marquee box to decorate my office, and I have had a lot of fun updating the message. However, it takes a long time to sort through the letter tiles to see if I have enough for the message I have in mind.

 

For this challenge, please build an app that will make sure that I have enough of each letter for my desired message. Note, some tiles can be used for multiple characters (e.g. 6 and 9, O and zero).

 

You don't need to check the message for fit (although, if you want an extra challenge, my marquee box can hold three rows of eight tiles).

I found that rendering to a temporary .pdf works in communicating the result, but really wanted it to be part of the app popup at the end. - Update!  Figured it out!  It is to show the results of the Browse in the Interface Designer!  Re-posted results and workflow.

I wonder if @MarqueeCrew is game for a marquee challenge.

I had fun replacing the symbols with their actual unicode characters.
