Is there a way to change the color of the text based on some set-points for data coming from an Analog Status tag? I'm thinking you would use the "Text Change (4 state)" widget, but I can't figure out how to set the values for the different states.
For example, I would like it to always show the tag value, but change from blue when it's below 110.0 to green between 110.0 and 120.0, and red

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.
I'm trying to save a report group (Save Group), with a name, but the OK button is always greyed out, no matter what tags/report types I select. Same if I use a Report tag.
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 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.

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.

Could you tell me how to properly use VScrol

I am new to VTScada and I am testing out the scripting potential of the platform.
I started out by creating a widget that display my typical dataset linked to tags. To display that widget I used the GUITransform function.
Now I obviously don't only have one but many of those that I want to display on the same screen. Also the number will change dynamically so they will h
I'd like to use an array of tags and order it by different characteristics in script (ex. the tags with an active alarm first).
I think the best way to achieve this is by using the function GetTagList then sort that array. Unfortunately GetTagList only return an array of tag names so I can't access the tags properties. In order to sort them I would need a function that return a tag p
The latest version of Chrome (64.0.3282.137) on Android (7.0.0) doesn't seem to allow you to logout of the VTS Anywhere client (VTS version 11.2.10). We use to be able to tap our name and the menu would pop up and give you the option to Log Off. Is there a work around to get this working again or is this working in the latest version of VTS.

In the Programmer's guide document, there is a "A 15-Minute Snapshot Report" section that show you can use the \SnapshotReport function to create a custom Snapshot Report. Is there an equivalent function for total report that also allow custom time frame?

How do you control how often the plot data widget updates? It's fine on the local machine, but the internet clients have a slow connection. The plots show "data retrieval in progress" more often than they show the plot line. I'd like to slow it down specifically on the clients, but would be OK setting it slower on the project if that's the only way.

I have a client that likes the "arc" gauge widget. I can't figure out the decimal formatting on that one. Some tags display a decimal, while others show a whole number.
Some of the gauges let you specify the number of digits to display after the decimal. How can I set that on the arc gauge? Is there an expression to use?
