I've been using VTScada for a few weeks now and would like to check if you can recommend ways to implement sequences of events that may have different order, and time delays between them.

For example, let's say I want to have a button X that when pushed activates Sequences 1 and 2 as follows:

Sequence 1:

If option A preferred (this implies option A is active):

Write 1

I have a popup menu that calls other popup pages, and I want the menu to close after I use it to open a page. Here's my code below. When I open a popup, however, my code closes the menu along with the popup I just opened. Why? How do I fix this?

If \DisplayManager.CurrPage() != Self(); {Lose focus}
\DisplayManager.StopPage(Self) { Close window };

I need an expression to read application properties.

I found something in the help describing how to "Use Application Properties" in an expression however it's actually describing how to use system properties in an expression.

When tried to use ...

I am looking into replacing the scada system we have with VTscada but have run into a problem . Some of the addresses on the Omron plc (Modbus) are strings and contain ascii text which needs to be manipulated via the scada Ie Product name. At this stage the tag returns a number not text. Can anyone help me with this.

I've created some tag types and instances of them, but when my project loads, I get a "Tag name collision" in the Error Report.
I've checked the help files and it mentions that the duplicate tag will be disabled, but both tags in the tag browser are enabled, and further to that, the names of the tags and the unique IDs are all different. The only thing that is the same is the "declaration key

Popup pages can appear because of a button click, but is there a way to get a popup to appear based on a set of conditions? The way you get the access denied popup if you haven't logged in. I want to prompt users to correct the action that has prevented an action if possible. Is there something possible that is different than the alarm popup bage, thats more simliar to the login prompt?

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.

Is it possible to make the droplist widget write to a property of a context tag? I haven't been able to successfully change the properties this way of a Context tag this way. I can always set up a hotbox an operator can right click and edit properties in this way. But the most user friendly/ optimal method for data governance would be this droplist widget.

Another way would be to create

I am working with a Siemens S7 TIA Portal program and I am trying to pull the part type from the PLC into the VTSCADA system. The issue I am having with the String I\O is I am only getting the DEC form of the tag and not the CHARACTER values. In the PLC in a watch table when I look at the exact tag in DEC I get the value of 2565 but in CHAR I get DB 10 (FW part type). is there something I can do

I have only one VTScada. I want to regular move the earliest month history data to another disk driver for efficiency and data backup. How can VTScada do this? Thank you.

Please provide an example of how *this is done.

May be set in a parent context tag if you have Modbus devices with differing address offsets.

I have no idea how to put a context tag into an application's configuration.
