Wondering if anyone has managed to setup VTS within a Docker container or similar.

Ultimately, my goal is to be able to run multiple versions of VT simultaneously. As an integrator I have some apps on 12.1.19, others running 12.0.56 and then a few others that I support. I would improve my efficiency if I can be working on different projects at the same time without having to shutdown one ins

I've been using VTScada for a few weeks now and would like to check if you can recommend ways to implement sequences of events that may have different order, and time delays between them.

For example, let's say I want to have a button X that when pushed activates Sequences 1 and 2 as follows:

Sequence 1:

If option A preferred (this implies option A is active):

Write 1

I have a popup menu that calls other popup pages, and I want the menu to close after I use it to open a page. Here's my code below. When I open a popup, however, my code closes the menu along with the popup I just opened. Why? How do I fix this?

If \DisplayManager.CurrPage() != Self(); {Lose focus}
\DisplayManager.StopPage(Self) { Close window };

I need an expression to read application properties.

I found something in the help describing how to "Use Application Properties" in an expression however it's actually describing how to use system properties in an expression.

When tried to use ...

I have a concern regarding the automatic logging of tags to a CSV/Excel file.
Unfortunately, in the trigger selection I only have the option of having the data written to the file every hour... is there any way to further customise the trigger time and have the data written to an external file every minute, for example?
Thank you very much for your expertise!

I am looking into replacing the scada system we have with VTscada but have run into a problem . Some of the addresses on the Omron plc (Modbus) are strings and contain ascii text which needs to be manipulated via the scada Ie Product name. At this stage the tag returns a number not text. Can anyone help me with this.

I've created some tag types and instances of them, but when my project loads, I get a "Tag name collision" in the Error Report.
I've checked the help files and it mentions that the duplicate tag will be disabled, but both tags in the tag browser are enabled, and further to that, the names of the tags and the unique IDs are all different. The only thing that is the same is the "declaration key

Hi, I'm working in an application for control some devices using a PLC GE RXi3,for that, I' m using a Selector Switch widget and the same tag type.

Complete newbie here and am self teaching myself VTScada and SCADA in general. I am getting a float variable back from the MODBUS expressed in exponential form. I now need to convert this to its actual value that the float represents. Is there a function in VTScada that does this or do I need to write a function to go to binary, decodes the binary and then convert back to decimal.

Popup pages can appear because of a button click, but is there a way to get a popup to appear based on a set of conditions? The way you get the access denied popup if you haven't logged in. I want to prompt users to correct the action that has prevented an action if possible. Is there something possible that is different than the alarm popup bage, thats more simliar to the login prompt?

Hi, is there a recommended way to trigger on-screen keyboard on Windows 10?
I have an application with a Program Spawn button and a path to c:\Windows\System32\osk.exe
The same button on Windows 7 would open the on-screen keyboard but not on Windows 10.
However, if I change it to notepad c:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe, it would work on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Is it possible to make the droplist widget write to a property of a context tag? I haven't been able to successfully change the properties this way of a Context tag this way. I can always set up a hotbox an operator can right click and edit properties in this way. But the most user friendly/ optimal method for data governance would be this droplist widget.

Another way would be to create

I'd like to be able to allow the operator to disable alarms and adjust alarm priorities from the HMI itself without having to navigate the settings. Are there widgets I can use to accommodate this?

hello everyone

I have been configuring the software so that clients have remote access to my vtscada program, I bought the domain, ssl certificate, and followed the configuration in detail according to Dave Spencer's video on VtScada's youtube channel, but I can only view my program on other computers on the local network.

At the end of the video, in my program, in the "Thin Client / Serv

I am working with a Siemens S7 TIA Portal program and I am trying to pull the part type from the PLC into the VTSCADA system. The issue I am having with the String I\O is I am only getting the DEC form of the tag and not the CHARACTER values. In the PLC in a watch table when I look at the exact tag in DEC I get the value of 2565 but in CHAR I get DB 10 (FW part type). is there something I can do

Hello Team,

We are working on reading the data using VTScada REST queries. While working History_TPPvalue tables we are trying to read Average values. While comparing the result in the Tag browser we found that the values are not the same. I have attached the screenshot for Historical Data Viewer and also the txt file with the REST query and its response. Could you
I've added a custom property to my application which I'd like a VTScada I/O & calculation tag to know about. It's in the Application Section, named BarHistLenth, & has a numeric value.

Can't find a valid expression for my I/O & calc tag. Figured I better ask 'cause trying to do something that can't be done takes forever.
