  1. Hello All,Does anybody know the correct syntax for the following:-I have a genie with variable A getting passed inI want to use this as a prefix for a variable address to send to a function.function ( %A% + _variable)(_variable being the rest of the address)So if genie variable A was 05 the tag value sent to the function would be 05_variable.Also, I would like to off set the A variable by 4Sofunction ( %A% - 4 + _variable)so would actually send value from 01_variable if the genie A was 5.Hope that makes sense, any help would be greatly appreciated as I've being trying various different ways and cant get it to work.Thanks,Tom
  2. Hi All: I am new to Citect and looking for a way to create 1 page that has 25 valves (genie that pops up a super genie) and some analog genie/super genies. What I want to do is create 1 page and dynamically replace everything when someone selects a different rack in the system. I have 4 systems that have the exact same equipment times 10 so I want to avoid creating 40 different pages. Can anyone help with some ideas on how I can accomplish this? Thanks M
  3. Hi All, I'm adding a system to my current project which is used to keep product labels correctly moving around the plant (On Screen) and then end up in their correct destination silos and stay there until manually cleared. The labels are determined by referring to an INT in the PLC DM register for that particular part of the plant and then references that to a preset String Variable Tag to display. Now I've made a Genie that is to be attached to each Silo which opens up a small super genie which will just have - a Title, - the label of the current product in the silo(Var Tag), - a label of the previous product to be in that silo (Var Tag), - and a button with a function that I've written to clear that particular label and then store the current label value into the previous product label. The function in the button works fine on it's own but the problem is I'm trying to have it so that I can just pass through the arguments to it from the original genie, but I have had no luck trying to do this. The function in the button is as such: Previous_Label(INT Current_OilCode_tag, STRING Previous_OilCode_tag) <these are the correct data types for these tags as set in citect. Which when I Set it up in the SG is: Previous_Label(?INT 1?, ?STRING 2?) In the genie Itself im using AssMetadataPopUp() and I'm just setting it up in the Metadata Section as: - Name: 1 Value: %Current_OilCode% - Name: 2 Value: %Previous_Oilcode% As said it works if i just set the button up on the Silo Page (Outside of the SuperGenie) and use it there, but having the button in the SuperGenie and trying to pass the Variable Tags into it has been a Nightmare. I should note that I went to the lengths of just Duplicating the button 20 different times and the function also was tweaked to just work for one silo each, then set the Hidden When field to: ?INT 3? <> 1 (For Silo 1 for example) then just having all of the buttons on top of each other in the SG, but much to my frustration this also did not work as all the buttons were hidden, I believe that this is because for ?INT 3? I was simply just typing in 1, not an actual variable tag so I am yet to test this. Hopefully someone here can perhaps spot something I'm doing wrong. Also I can upload the actual codes, I just don't have them on me right now. Many Thanks.
