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
With Analog Status you have High and Low alarm setpoints built in so you don't have additional setpoint tags go against your tag count. How do you then refrence these setpoints inside the digital status tag to a numeric entry so that users can changes these without having to go into tag browser?

Distributed Local Historians – The County was also concerned about the potential loss of data should the connection to remote sites be lost. In response, MPE configured the application to allow for use of VTScada as local HMIs at all remote stations. Once VTScada is deployed as a local HMI, if the station is cut
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

Has anyone deployed a system like this with VTScada before? We've done similar with other platforms but we're keen to move forward with a VTScada solution for this one. Any tips or info is appreciated!

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
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.
