Just switched from using FXDUwin to gt designer to program up an f940 got hmi.
I cant work out how to get up the password entry keypad. In fxduwin you just typed in ff68 in the key code and up it popped. But gt designer wont let me. Any ideas??

And as was just mentioned, you need to have passwords set in the System Environment.
And as for obsolete, the majority of the A900 line are currently phased out. Not all of the F900 series have been replaced yet. My bad.

1. I just created a new project for an F940. I added a special function switch with function Password.
2. In the system environment, on the password tab, make sure you check off the 'Level Device' and put in an address in the PLC or GOT to store the current security level. If you have not set a location to store the password, passwords are not accepted. You must set an address where it will store the current level.
I did both of these things and it worked fine.

But I did use GT Designer 5 years ago, and I doubt they added something like this in GTD2. If they had, it would be only for the newer units. There must have been a way, as the F940 supported passwords all the way back.
I still have a copy of GTD 5 somewhere. I'll see if I can't find it. I've also got the manuals for GTD 5 (they're on www.meau.com) and I'll look at them and see what they called it.

two F940s (one monochrome and other color) to control things like scrolling through
an alarm list and alarm history objects for example (this was before GT Works).
Read the manual, you know what to look for... If i find the projects, i will upload them..

Have a new problem now though - I have some ascii input lines but when you press them to bring up the keypad a numeric keypad pops up not an alphanumeric - any ideas on this one?

I got out the manual for the GT-Designer 5 (on www.meau.com you can download manual SH(NA)080117-M) and looked it up. It's called an extended function switch. Look on the Action tab for the additional actions as shown in the picture below.
Ah i found this yesterday but it only gives me the extended functions if i use an a900 screen not the f940!! Crazy program.

I have done this with a F940- Password protection and Alpha numeric keyboard entry.
Any way, I am attaching some screen grabs
Screen 1: Specify some devices to i/f between PLC and HMI
Screen 2: Specify device (this can be a got internal register too (GT100, etc.))
Screen 3: Here you specify you key windows. For mine I made custom screens. This is a nice feature....
Screen 4: This is a sample of my keyboard. Big simple bulky buttons!
Screen 5: Setup security level per screen (You have already sorted this out- gathering from the posts)
Good luck, hope this helps
I forgot, you have to turn on bits in the PLC to allow automated password request.
If the OP is on a lower level than required, the GOT will automatically ask for a higher level password.
Here is a list of the bits.
In my example, the bits are for device D901.
Bit 0: Alarm History Clear
Bit 1: Backlight off after delay (set on GOT)
Bit 2: Sample data clear
Bit 3: Not used
Bit 4: Not used
Bit 5: Barcode input invalid
Bit 6: Barcode input reset
Bit 7: Not used
Bit 8: Auto password display
Bit 9: Not used
Bit 10: Keypad valid information 1
Bit 11: Keypad valid information 2
Bit 12: Reserved
Bit 13: Reserved
Bit 14: Reserved
Bit 15: Reserved
Can not remember where this is in the manual....?
Keep bit 8 high!

I've also read somewhere, GTD 2 Classic also work with GOT900. Please, advise me for the same & help me out to made this possible.
I'm having GTD2 & GTD3 with me. Any add-on can work for me?

As for your answer, GT Designer2 can program those terminals, you don't need GT Designer. And GT Designer3 comes with GT Designer2 Classic, so you have it in that package as well.
