Hi,

My VTScada application uses a 3rd-Party database (MySQL). I'm trying to retrieve a tablename using this query:

SELECT tablename FROM friendlyTagNameLookup WHERE friendlyName = 'MyTag';
Unfortunately, this query returns null. Upon looking directly in the database, I can see that the table 'friendlytagnamelookup' is incomplete. Some tags are present and others are missing. I tried addin

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.

Thanks
Vic

Is there a way to configure a context tag for Rockwell add-on instructions or user defined data types? For example I would like to create a TankType structure with a property named identifier. For tank TK01 I assign the identifier to TK01 and I want all child tags to follow the TK01.TagName structure. I can't figure out the syntax for the tag I/O address expression.

Hi,

I'm trying to use a C# based dll with my VTScada application. To do so, I'm using The function DLL.

It's working well with integers, floats and strings, but I have to do some gymnastics to get a bool (I use an integer return type and apply a modulo 2 to the variable to get a 0 or a 1), and I flat out can't get any types of object. I'm trying to use a pointer as a return type but I al

Good morning,

I am currently working on a VTScada Light License with the goal of being an historian and data collector for a wastewater treatment pilot unit. I have come across the following issues when it comes to exporting/reporting:

What I can do with the HDV:

Export data for a specified unit time frame (ex: 2 days, 1 week)
Export "Time Per Record" to record every X minutes/seconds

I have the latest Light software. Up and running connected to a Compact Logix running V20 flawlessly. But with my V.28 Control Logix, it will connect long enough to show the connection in the AB Demo driver then disconnects. what can I try?

I have just installed VTScada 11.3.10 on a Windows 7 (32-bit).
When it starts, the application manager is missing all text.
Hover notes work OK.
The 'About VTScada' window is blank.
I have restarted windows on the VM but still no text. Any suggestions please? What font does the application manager use?

Thanks.

Hi,

Is it possible for each server/station of the same VTScada application to have their own Alarm DB and Event DB?

Or is there any way so that alarms would need to be acknowledged independently on each server/station? So if an alarm is acknowledged on one server, it still shows up as unacknowledged on the other.

Thanks
Victor

Hello, can someone please take a look at the attached screen shots and let me know why there are no values for the tags "T_Room" and "DI4"? I'm connected through a USB to Modbus RTU converter. The TX and RX lights are flashing on the converter, so I know its talking to the PLC. The first four screen shots are from the PLC software. I not sure how the scaling should be set up for analog status

Hi,

I have a custom page I need to be only accessed by superAdministrators.
In order do do this, I created an application privilege and added it to the required security privilege of the page. Then I added the application privilege to the superAdministrator role.

Now I would like to hide that application privilege from regular Administrator to prevent them from managing that privilege.

Hi,

I'd like to add a vertical scrollbar to my window so I can see the elements outside that window scope. I am able to display the scrollbar using VScrollbar. As I understand, VScrollbar returns a numeric value representing its position.

I tried using WindowOptions to make a vertical translation equal to my scrollbar position to no avail.

Could you tell me how to properly use VScrol
