How to make a recipe?

6 posts in this topic

I'm coming from AB and Automation Direct and I guess to assume they would even be remotely similar was a joke. In AD I have the ability to pull up a recipe on the HMI with the Part number (Vertical column) and different attributes of the part in the following 5 columns (derived from tags in the PLC). How do I replicate this in GT Designer 3? I'm utilizing GX Works 3 with it. 

I have a recipe record box on the HMI screen thats visibility is based on a tag in the PLC. How do I make it do the same thing has previously described? Going through the settings of the Recipe Display, I can't find any place to add the columns based on the tags. It seemingly gives you very limited options in the settings. Has anyone had better experience with this that can point me in the right direction? 
Thanks in advance!

Is there any necessity to the use of so many of the GDXXXX format? A lot of what I'm editing is in D, and there's definitely a method to the madness I might just be missing. Thanks in advance.

haha glad to be able to help

 

No worries this is just an extensive example. Al you need to use basically is the recipe settings and Recipe Display.

The GD register are just local devices you can use D registers
