softgoodsint posted a topic in Allen BradleySorry if this is covered elsewhere, but my search hasn't revealed anything yet. I have a number of PanelView graphics created with FactoryTalk View ME and some use a lot of Parameter Files, which link to popup faceplates. So a large number tags are represented with parameter files, which, when clicked on screen, then pop-up an appropriate faceplate, based on tag type or category etc. I am still digging into the very elaborate FT View ME manual, but at 500 pages, that's quite a deep study. But I don't see the linkage between the tag's parameter file and how it specifies which faceplate to pop up, and I've not yet found a good article other than keep digging into that FT manual. There does not appear to be a linkage entry in the parameter file itself, where I would have expected it. Nor do I see any "hot spot" click type event code in the display itself, which would also make sense. Is it in the PLC code itself? I would not have expected that, since they seem to be keeping the FT environment self-contained. But there must be some sort of table or linkage somewhere that I'm over looking. Thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts & guidance on this. Other parts of FT HMI screen development does seem intuitive, just not this dynamic linking.
