Sequence browser - proxy node data types?

Operating system: Windows 10
Slicer version: 4.11.0-2019-07-23
Expected behavior:
I am streaming data through PLUS and using OpenIGTLinkIF. Data includes a transform, an image and a string (text read from the image by PLUS). The string streams in as ‘vtkMRMLTextNode’. In the sequence browser, I am able to set the transform (vtkMRMLLinearTransformNode) and the image(vtkMRMLScalarVolumeNode) as a proxy node for new sequences. Similarly, I want to set the string(vtkMRMLTextNode) as a proxy node and be able to record the incoming string/text information.
P.S. it is actually a number that I want but PLUS streams as a string so I record it as a string and convert to float later on.

Actual behavior:
In the sequence browser, in the drop-down menu, I can’t see the name of the text node.
Is it not allowed to have vtkMRMLTextNode set as a proxy node for sequences?

Thank you for helping me. Wishing everyone wellness and health in these times.

I’ve added support for sequencing vtkMRMLTextNodes now, it should be available for download on Monday.

Thank you Andras! I will let you know as soon as I try it again
