  1. Hello! I want to execute a script exactly one time when I touch a switch. I add a switch on my screen, I set on the register "script" a little script to test, I checked  "use object script". When I start the GOT1455, the script runs all the time, even if I never touched the switch. Can somebody help me to find the issue? Or give a TODO List to exceute a script only If I touch a switch? Thanks a lot in advance MBoerner
  2. Hi, I'm trying to use a parameter pass a literal string (eg. "Tank Temperature") in a global object, but when it displays in the pop-up I'm passing it to, it shows up as all caps (eg. "TANK TEMPERATURE"). How do I fix this?  Thanks in advance PS. It's not showing up with quotation marks, I used the alt0160 to replace the spaces.  Is there something similar to fix the capitalization?
  3. Dear Experts!!! Actually i have two problems : 1.    I want to change the object (FT View SE v8.0) property to "VBA controlled". But its not allowing me to do it,  like as you can see on the pic.   2.    I want to make an array of objects in FT View like as shown in the pic (Image of VB form): the object name is azul and the index is 0 so the object shown in the pic is azul(0) VB Form code is : Private Sub Form_Load() Dim i As Integer For i = 1 To 224 Load gris(i) azul(i).Visible = True Next i azul(0).Visible = True For i = 0 To 224 azul(i).Top = gris(0).Top azul(i).Width = gris(0).Width Next i For i = 0 To 224 azul(i).Left = azul(0).Left + i * azul(0).Width Next i End Sub As you can clearly see in VB code I have created one object only, but rest of the objects are being created by Code only I want to do the same thing in FT View SE v8.0 Please please help!!!!!
  4. Hiya Guys, New here (first post!) - and I'm fairly new to Connected Components Workbench, so apologies for the mammoth post! I am currently developing a System using one Micro850 PLC and one PanelView C600 HMI. I am able to update the current HMI time by sending Unsigned-Integers to Global Connection Tags: System Clock – Hour ($SysClockHour);System Clock – Minute ($SysClockMinute);System Clock – Second ($SysClockSecond);However, if using the same “update time” more than once, this method does not work as the HMI is looking for a “change” in a Tag before an update occurs (Tag-specific). For example, we require to be able to receive a “synchronisation signal” on a digital-input on the PLC each day at 15:00:00. This will only work once as, even though the HMI’s current time updates every second, I will still be sending the values “15”, “0”, and “0” to the above Tags (which will therefore not force an update – as they haven’t changed). I cannot reset these Tags without updating the current Time – as any number “out of range” causes an error (incidentally the errors are shown on the HMI to occur on Tags “SysClockSecondTimed”, “SysClockMinuteTimed”, and “SysClockHour” – note the omission of the word “Timed” on the Hours error…). There appears to be no reference to these “Timed” Tags anywhere in CCW, and I have no idea why the “Hour” update errors on a different (the correct?!) Tag. It’s a pretty confusing problem and difficult to explain… it took me a while to get my head around it – and I can see what the code is doing! J I've looked for documentation on how these Global Connection Tags work, but I can't find anything. Everything I (think I) know so far is from extensive testing... so if anyone knows of any documentation, or has any suggestions as to how I can achieve the required result - that would be massively helpful! Thanks for taking the time to read all this! Cheers, Steve.
  5. Hi guys, Need help!! First time using FactoryTalk SE and stuck here for hours. My objective is to create a standard object(Pump, Valve) and use it multiple times with different tag (P_101, P_102 .etc.) After read through help file and manual, I found that global object may be what I need, so i do some test with simple multi-state indicator but fail...... the log show "Failed to resolve item's ID '#1' because it does not exist on any server" Hope someone can let me know what mistakes I have make!!! My steps: 1) Create new Global Object 2) insert a multistage indicator 3) Properties -> States -> assign caption for each stage 4) Properties -> Connections -> Tag/Expression -> key in #1 5) Global Object Parameter Definitions -> Name -> Key in #1 6) Copy Global Object and paste in Display to create reference object 7) right click and open Global Object Parameter Values 8) click the tag button to browse tag from PLC online (Tag name: SV_505.STATUS, DINT, direct read from RSLINK that connect to PLC) 9) test Display result: [FactoryTalk]: The Item is no longer available: #1 Failed to resolve item's ID '#1' because it does not exist on any server I then 1) change the #1 to #1.Status, link to Tag SV_505 and repeat the step.............fail again 2) Create Memory tag and link to #1...................................................................fail again, start to miss citect genie 3) change to rectangle with fill animation with Bool tag.......................................fail again, take out lighter and try to burn the PC, operator stopped me....just kidding PS: I can link animation with PLC without problem, the error occur only when I use GLOBAL OBJECT Extra information: Software: Factory talk View Studio 6.10.00 (CRP 9 SR 4) OS: Win7 Professional SP1 64bit
