Analog Input Tags, Analog Status Tags, Digital Input, Digital Status, etc are all considered legacy type tags according to the VTScada Help files. It is advised to use I/O and Calculations Tag instead. Why ? Is there anything wrong with using legacy tags ? What are the main differences from legacy tags to i/o & calculation tags ?

Hello, i am trying to dynamically set the PageHeight property in the source code of a popup.

its seems you cannot run an expression in the variable declaration of the source code.
I can put this in the main function PageHeight = PickValid(Type_PID\RemSP, 0) == 1 ? 709 : 577 ;

I'm new to VTScada and currently using VTScada light and watching videos to get started. Two quick questions.

The text widget correctly reads a tag in the PLC but displays a ? at the end of the text. How do I get rid of the ? at the end of the text?

How can I change the color schemes for the gauge widgets? I'm using the Arc Meter gauge widget which is blue but don't see any
