Why hasn't Trihedral implemented a keypad popup for numeric entries? It's definitely feasible, as I've managed to create my own version. Incorporating this feature directly into numeric entry fields, with an option to enable or disable it, would significantly enhance usability and efficiency.

Is there a way to move the Data Age from a polling driver that is a child to the parent Context Tag/Custom Tag type? i looked through the source debugger for a variable and could not find one. i am assuming this may not be possible with the default context site details widget that is displayed. And yes i know if the polling driver is the parent it displays automatically.

TLDR: I want to create an additional historian. And want all the new tags under a parent context tag to point to the new historian.

I have added a setting in the past to change the server list for all child tags, using "DriverServerListName" setting in a parent tag. Does such a setting exist for historians as well?

My problem is that all of my tag types have been defined and have their ch

I am reinstalling VTScada 10.2 for a customer who had a computer crash. I added the old project from a changeset file. I get the following error when trying to run the project:

Is there an easy fix for this?

Is there a way, within the numeric value widget, to show the thousands separator (as the tag browser does) for an analog i/o tag?

6,512,342 is easier to read than 6512342.

I tried the CommaFormat function within a text expression, but it wouldn't let me hit "Ok" after putting an analog tag as the argument in the function.

Dear vtscada authority, I have been wanting to pull data directly from the scada database by establishing an odbc connection for a long time, but I could not establish the connection.

I have two questions:

first one: the ODBC license in the manuals asks if it is active, I do not see this part active or deactive, or even not at all, has this been removed with the new license?

Second: d

I have a VT Scada realm configured with 9 applications. When I connect to this realm using the ODBC DSN, I only see the tags configured in the first application of the realm.

Do I need to create a new realm for each application? Can multiple VT Scada realms run on the same machine at the same time without issue?

What would be the best way to approach this kind of configuration? My goal

How do I create text buttons (inputs) for login access? For example, in VTScada, I created my user with the necessary permissions. In the supervisory, I want to add two input buttons and a confirmation button. These input buttons would be Username and Password. The user will enter their username and then their password. If it is correct, go to the plant Synopsis page. How do I do that? I'm

I am trying to test the REST Queries .

I have set the application property "RESTAllowedOrigins" to null as given in your example HTML page.

Anyone has experience with this REST API Queries?

Any more tips, examples etc?

Hi All,

I want to write three status from two different tag values.

"1" Means "Open"
"2" Means "Close"
"3" Means "Travel"

How to write the tag expression referencing another two tag value in VT SCADA.

if [Sludge Dewatering\ZIO_6333A]==1 then "1"
else if [Sludge Dewatering\ZIC_6333A]==1 then "2"
ELSE "3"

What I am doing:

SubStr( [Prod_End], 0, 4), {2024}
SubStr( [Prod_End], 5, 1), {1}
SubStr( [Prod_End], 7, 2), {20}
This will output 2024120 to a analog calc tag, that i will use in reporting. (I need analog type because other tags are also analog; but thats not the point)
You can see the picture that the formatting is not foolproof. This calculation will
I'm currently working through developing some new windows for a client. I'm new to VT Scada and have spent the bulk of my career in Ignition. I was given a changeset file to reference what they currently have or at least within the last 6 months. I started a new application to develop just the new pages and tags that I will import into the client's system.

Traditionally I have always develop
Has anyone connected VTScada MQTT client driver to AWS IoT Core MQTT broker successfully? I have a device publishing to a AWS and I can see the data coming in on the topic.

I need to come up with valid expression for two lines of text with a carriage return & line feed separating them. I've done this before but I can't remember where or how. This shouldn't be impossible to find in the help. I know it's in there somewhere but nothing I search for turns up anything useful.

By the way, I am aware of VTScada's multi line text widget. That widget doesn't let

Hello, I'm trying to figure out the process for retaining historical trend data during a hardware upgrade, where I am also upgrading the VTS version.

I've found information stating to copy the directory over from the old PC to the new PC, but it seems like I may need to install the same version of VTS on the new machine, then upgrade to the newer version, and I would like to be able to do so
