If I open the Historical Data Viewer page and turn a tag's trend visibility off by clicking the eyeball icon and then close the page, the trend visibility is set to disabled globally. You go to a page showing that tag's value and click on it to open the plot and it is not visible. Not only that, but any other user will also have that tag's plot not be visible.

How can I configure the plot vis

Hello, I am new to VTScada. I have an Alarm Word from the PLC, where each bit represents an individual fault. I'd like to read the entire Alarm Word as a single tag in VTscada and create alarms for each individual bit. I have found the expression Bit([HMI Alarm Word],2) for example to work as an expression, but I'm not sure where/how to enter this to create the Alarm. Thanks.

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

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.
