  1. Is there a work around for using ActiveX controls when the FactoryTalk View ME edition does not match the Panelview firmware revision? I have FactoryTalk version 13 and the Panelview is 10 (Panelview Plus 7 Perf 1500). Trying to use the Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control.  Thanks
  2. Unable to delete a screen

    Hello AB professionals, I am using FactoryTalk View Studio v11. I am basing on an old project to build my application. I restored the project from a .mer file. I deleted or renamed some old screens, saved and closed the project. But when I open the project next time the screens I deleted still show up. When I click on it it will show an error message "Component does not exist".  In the FactoryTalk ME application, I right click a screen name on the left tree under the Graphics, and then click "Delete" or "Remove", the display would disappear at that time. But it persists on coming back next time I open the project. If you know the solution to resolve please reply. It is much appreciated.   Thank you. Lei
  3. I've got a client with a Modicon Unity Controller CPU 311_10 with a NOE 771_01 Ethernet card that appears to have security enabled that keeps us from looking at the code. We only tried accessing the CPU web page from a browser and it came up with a Login we couldn't get past. We didn't have Unity Pro software with us at the time but assume we will still encounter the same security login. The person who was responsible for this system is no longer alive, his company is gone, and there is no backup. Does anyone have any idea how to get into this PLC? Thanks in advance for your help.

  4. Hey guys,   I am looking to query a database through FactoryTalk SE.  I will be scanning packages, and using that bar code to find a lane assignment from the database.     My question has to do with where the VB script will reside in the FactoryTalke SE program.  I want this script to run at all times.  I see that each screen has a "VBA Code" but I am assuming that these will only run when the screen is visible.   Where does this have to be stored in order to run all the time?   Thanks In Advance!

  6. Apache Log4J

    IT will be making more and more news that the Apache Logging Unit - LogShell ot Log4J2 has a major remote access vulnerability.  This is a widely used subsystem and so I am posting what I've been able to garner about affected automation products here and hope others post factual not anecdotal evidence here as well.

  7. Hi all, I have an application where two buttons are created: End Batch: "Momentary Push Button" that modifies the value of a tag. Print Report: "Display Print Button" that generates PDF with a screenshot of the current screen. I would like to mix both buttons into one single button that does this functionality at once. I have been reviewing forums and it seems that the only way to do that would be by using VBA code but I believe that this is not available on FactoryTalk View ME but only on SE. Would anyone know a way of printing a PDF screenshot + modifying a tag at the same time and with a single button on FactoryTalk View ME? Thank you!
  8. I had FactoryTalk ME and SE Studio V12 on my Windows 10 machine. A few days ago I needed to use to V10 for some alarm functions and because FT will not let you have multiple versions on one laptop, I had to downgrade to V10. Everything had been working fine until the uninstall of V12 and the install of V10. Whether in ME or SE, and even in a newly created project, opening any display crashes Studio. I have attempted two clean installs and can't seem to get it fixed. It feels more like a Windows OS issue but we're a bit stumped. Anyone else run into this?
  9. Dear Experts, We are facing one issue to get a ASCII serial pump data into FactoryTalk SCADA tags. Though, we get to communicate with Pump with VBA form and able to control the pump and get its flow status, can set the flow as well. Now our requirement is to fetch the pump flow and set the flow from FactoryTalk SCADA screen (using tags) How to get the data received in VB script into tag??? Any sample code for the same will be more helpful. Thanks in advance.
  10. I have a global sidebar that has all of my page navigation buttons.  Is there a way to hide a certain button based on the current page that is displayed (i.e. "Manual" button is invisible when the Manual screen is displayed)?  I know how to make a button visible/invisible based on a tag or expression, but I don't know how to do it based on the current page.
  11. Hello, On our DCS we have a button that will open an RDP connection to our PLC server and open the .mer file connecting the DCS to the PanelView HMI. This is supposed to be used for troubleshooting purposes only, but that is not the case. Is there a way to prevent operators from operating the HMI through the RDP while still allowing them to have read only access?   Thanks, Michael
  12. Hello, denizens of Mr.PLC. I'm trying to talk to an old TSX17-20, and have acquired the DOS files for PL7 22. However, when installing via floppy drive, I'm getting a fatal error saying that the User Interface is missing. FATAL ERROR: 251 Your Telemecanique system in incomplete. Ensure that User Interface is correctly installed.   I'm aware that PL722 (and PL7-1/2/3, etc.) require Telemecanique's DOS User Interface to run, but I can't for the life of me find installation files, and, as it is no longer supported by Schneider, no luck getting it from their site. Apparently, it used to be hosted there. Would any of you wonderful folk have the links or files to this user interface? Apparently, PL7 22 5.0/5.1 have never required/no longer require a license. It was a drag to find these files, so I'm posting the PL722 files (in two zips, representing the two floppies) so that there's an easy to find reference for them. PL722D1.ZIP PL722D2.ZIP
  13. HI guys,now i have " unable to determine the size of the file C:\users\public\document\RSVIEW ENTERPRISE\ME\HMI\PROJECTS\abc\tag\abc\.mdf. " this error shows...please give some help
  14. Hi guys, I am trying to open an application and i keep getting this error. Failed to initialize the service: {3F883B87-2208-11D4-B0E7-001083022E04} Does anyone know how to get rid of this error? Regards,
  15. Here is my setup - Factorytalk view SE V 7.0 with Primary and secondary servers. System gets replicated from primary to secondary once in a week. After the primary server was restarted due to some issue, all the HMI tags lost their values. 'Retentive' checkbox was checked on all HMI tags, initial value field is blank. According to the description of 'Retentive' field in the help file, the HMI tag should hold its value even after the server is restarted if the box is checked. Also, secondary server should have held those same values while primary was rebooting, but as of now all my HMI tags field are blanks. Am I looking at a patch roll up here?
  16. I have a display I use to show overviews on several big tvs in our plant.  Up to now I have used a single display and change which display is visible based on tag that increments based on a timer.  This has worked great but as my system grows I keep adding additional "blocks".  I have now ran into the issue that you can only have 3000 tags on one display.  While i only display one block at a time all of them load so that pushes me over the limit.  I am guessing I need a vba script to accomplish this .  If someone has done this I would love to see some VBA examples of what you did.  Or other ideas...
  17. Ok, so I was tasked with setting up a virtual for our development team to be able to use to quickly deploy projects hmi, emulated plc, and studio 5000 project together on one virtual.  The main reason for this is when we get a project, many times we have to wait for an available plc.  We have plc’s in our rack but they can’t be used because they are being used for other projects.  I’ve used the compatibility matrix that Rockwell has but my boss wants to stick with Windows 10 Professional like we do in most our projects but according to the matrix, it looks like having FactoryTalk View SE Enterprise version 10, Studio 5000 Logix version 33 and Studio 5000 Logix Emulate version 33, FactoryTalk Gateway 6.11 and RSLinx 4.11 (mainly for communication to the emulated plc) but in the matrix says Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012  is the best choice.  I’ve ran into issues with Emulate opening, it takes up to 20 minutes to open.  Our licenses are on a server and accessed using FactoryTalk Activation Manager and all the activations are there.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  18. HMI user

    Hi! I would like to ask your help. I have a problem with an allen bradley touch panel. I would like to know which user is active. Like maintenance, administrator... Is there any dedicated tag to decide and  to convey it toward the plc (also ab). If there is none. Can anybody suggest an alternative solution ?  Thanks ahead in advance. 
  19. I'm a young Controls Engineer at an integration company, and I need assistance.   I have a client that has about 330 different alphanumeric product numbers broken down by length and width. The operator must be able to select the product number at the HMI to pass along to the robot we are integrating. Is there a way to be able to have the operator select the product number simply, without having to scroll over 300 items in a single control list. The HMI is not chosen yet, so it can be GE, Rockwell/AB, or Automation Direct, but we are using a AB ControlLogix Processor. Racking my brain and I have little VBA/Scripting experience.
  20. Password for GX3 Files

    Hello We use to protect our files from GT Designer3 with a username and password. So, I can only open the project if I know the user and password. Very handy. I found that function not in GX Works 3. The field "User management" in "project" menu is disabled (grey). So, I surely miss something.  Can somebody help? The manual only tells about Block and CPU security.  Thanks!  
  21. I am having a very weird issue that Rockwell was not able to help with.  I have a new SE application that I converted from RSView32 and I re-wrote some VBA code associated with the project.  The code works fine on the server while the screen is running in studio.  Once I deploy a Client it no longer works.  It just sits there like its waiting for my trigger to go off, but I am seeing it sit there with a 1 so i know it should be executing the code because as soon as i open the screen in studio and press play the code executes and my data is there.  Does anyone have any ideas for me?   Thanks

  23. Good day, We are running FactoryTalk View SE (Network Distributed) version 7.00 (CPR 9 SR 6). We have 5 machines: Engineering Station, HMI/Data Server A, HMI/Data Server B, Operator station A and B. The FT Directory is located on Server A. Server A is Primary and Server B secondary. I made some changes to one of the HMI Display's and added a HMI Tag with an alarm.  Tested the changes, everything worked as predicted. I then checked the status of the RSLinx, HMI and Data servers using FT Administration Console, everything was running with full redundancy. I then selected Replicate to Secondary, the replication was successful and Server B rebooted. After Server B finished rebooting, I check the status again. I found that the RSLinx and Data servers started up and was again fully redundant but the HMI Server showed that Server A was active and Server B was Ready to provide service, left it for about 10 minutes but it never changed to Standby.  I rebooted Server B again to see if it will help but it did not. I then stopped the services on Server B, deleted the HMI Project, restored the project from a backup of Server A, but still had the same issue. I am suspecting that there might be an issue on server A because if I open FT View Studio on the engineering station, I get an error stating: Unable to open HMI Server. I have checked all network connections and everything looks fine. Is there someone that may be able to assist me? 
  24. Sorry 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.
  25. Can anyone help me with the issue in the picture? We have the correct version in place yet it gives me a version error stating it needs the version that is installed. Doc1.docx
