Why can't I use the same expression for controlling opacity on Numeric Values and images.

(Scale(Analog_verdi\LowWarning\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1) || Scale(Analog_verdi\HighWarning\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1)) && !(Scale(Analog_verdi\HighAlarm\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1) || Scale(Analog_verdi\LowAlarm\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1))
I controll the opacity on a Numeric Value and on a Text Value, and it looks like this, an

Is there any way to have the Numeric Entry Text box clear the contents of the entry box when the operator places the cursor in the box?

Currently, where ever the cursor is placed within the entry box that is where the cursor lands, so before the decimal ... after the decimal ... and with some operators at the helm they are not recognizing where the cursor lands and they just start typing the

I have an ipad with the newest iOS firmware 10.3.3, all apps are up to date, yet when I log in the VTScada, after filling out username and password, it gives a white blank page.

Have tried different browsers: Safari, Chrome, Firefox but still not have luck.

I also have another ipad and this one is working fine. So network issues are not this case.

Would you please help me out? Thank

I was wondering how the multi color widget works with a single digital input. For some reason I can't figure out how it works. I seen in the programmers guide on how to do it with an analog input and triggers but I couldn't find it used with a digital input.

Basically I was just going to take one digital input tag from my Allen bradley plc and use the multi color widget to display when it i

I am new to VTScada, and I want to monitor our networked PCs at home.

I used workstation tags but the only one that is working is the local PC where VTScada is currently installed (I have it in 2 laptops but it doesnt work, although I can see them in the dropdown menu when I first configured the workstation tag.

Am I missing some steps? For example, do I need to create a parent comms tag

Hello, I am trying to connect mysql database to VTScada application.
First of all, is it possible to save to database values from plc through VTScada?
I want to save temperatures through time.

If yes, I haven't manage it yet. I have created a Realm and added my current application to the realm.
I created a VTS ODBC connection at System DSN. I test the connection and obviously it retu

Hello, I use VTScada Free and try to communicate with Micro 820 through CIP protocol.
I downloaded your sample, and can see that it connects to plc.

But I can't figure out how can I pass my tags.
CCW understands tags as variables. I must give a variable name and then use it.

VTScada asks for address.
I tried to pass the names I have given to variables but, no luck.

Thank you

I am trying to communicate with an SNMP-enabled Ethernet switch. I added a Driver which is connected to a UDP Port, which requires a local and remote port #. Should it be 161 for both? I have imported the MIB file and created a tag, but the driver is not communicating.

Each new version of VTScada introduces new tools and sometimes changes how older features work. Your VTScada license entitles you to upgrades for a period of time after purchase. (Maintaining a Support Plus contract provides unlimited upgrades.) You can find the end date of your paid upgrade period in the About dialog, accessible from the VTScada Application Manager.

Please review

Sync'ing the clock on a PLC with the VTSCada computer time comes up fairly often. Depending on the requirements of the PLC, there are a number of ways to do this. The easiest way for all of them require using a trigger tag in the VTScada application that will trigger at a known time. For now, call this TriggerTimeSync and set an On schedule for 01:01 am and off 2 seconds later with no off schedul
Tank cut-away images are designed to work with the Color Fill widget. Place a cut-away on a tank and then set the color of that cut-away to something that will be unique on the page. Orange is a great choice. Now, place a Color Fill widget on top of the cut-away and set its Changed Color to match the color of the cut-away.
The Color Fill will be visible only where it overlaps the matching co
