I would like to add a button to spawn an external program.

Is this supported in the Lite version?

Generally, how does one find widgets -- is there a search, or do you just have know where they are?

I am having an issue connecting to a Koyo DL330 PLC via serial. I have it setup with the correct station addresses and COM port parameters, and it appears to be reading my register R16 correctly. However, writing to the tag fails. Sniffing the serial packets, it appears that the driver is trying to pull data from 2 8-bit registers when I only want to pull from one and I believe this is w

Some people have been having an issue connecting to the Microsoft Store and downloading the Excel plugin. A lot of these we have found are because of the Excel build. Note that Excel can be up to date with security patches but still be behind on builds.

The add-in currently requires what is known as the ExcelApi 1.4 requirement set which is available in build 7870.2024 or later, so although y

We are trying to create a report for documenting the duration a sewage lift station is overflowing on a day to day basis.

We have a calculation tag setting the overflow setpoint, and an alarm tag running the trigger of "wet well level > setpoint". Followed by a logger tag monitoring the state of the alarm tag, logging at every 60 sec.

When we run daily total reports on the logger

The VTScada help file indicates that the RadioButtons function should be called using the Dot notation:

When I attempted this implementation the radio buttons did not show up in my display. After verifying my variables I tried using the "\" notation:

This worked.

Is there a way to resize the horizontal buttons widget for a selector switch tag? It seems like it would be standard practice to have some user set-able parameters in the properties dialog for setting the width and height of the buttons, but there is not and the buttons are just too small.

I want to write an expression on "digital status" tag. According to changing in value of digital status tag, different text should be shown.
As like, If digital status tag value is 0 then it should shows 'disabled', If its value is 1 then it shows 'running', if tag value is 2 then it shows 'blocked', if the value is 3 then it shows 'unknown'.

I want to write an expresion in tags. How can i

Looking for the best way to configure resolutions between 10 pack applications and various client size displays. We have 15" 1024x768 HMIs at our panels, these using the 10 packs so we can filter by panel number. Then we have 27" and 32" monitors in our operator room running the main application on the VIC, and then programmer staff use 24" monitors.

Here is a look at how we have one of the

The High Performance HMI Handbook (Scada Bible) suggests that Faceplates should have a reserved spot on displays that change according to the item selected on the display.

Everything on the screen is selectable, and when selected the standard faceplate for the element appears in a reserved “faceplate zone” rather than floating around the screen obscuring the graphic.

Good morning,

Little quirk I noticed this morning - When using the Vertical Analog Bar High Performance Widget (VT12) the setpoint only allows you to choose a tag. It should allow the selection of a parameter, linked tag property or expression.

In my particular case I wanted to select a linked tag. This was accomplished by just choosing the tag (that I would like to have linked too) and t
