What does it mean what a trend says data retrieval in progress? Everything works fine at first, but when I look at the trends after my project has been running a while none show data and say "Data Retrieval in Progress".
I have recently downloaded and installed VT SCADA on my desktop. We are about to purchase the full version and I want to do some training and testing at my desk. I have installed in on two other computers and it works fine. But for some reason on my desktop it shows the start splash screen and then just shuts down and closes before it actuals starts the program. The desktop is fairly new and
I started a project in VTSCADALight, but had to get a license due to the tag count. How do I activate the license on an existing installation? Couldn't find this anywhere in the software or the help files.
I make a numeric entry in a Widget. Looks like this. And I have made a PNG which I will overlay. Moving the PNG on top of the numeric entry. Looks exactly how I want it. If I use this Widget on a page, this happens in runtime. The digits just move to the left, messing up the design. If I look at the page in Idea Studio,
We suddenly lost the ability to acknowledge alarms on our system and we are not sure why. We have stopped/started the software and that has not helped. We have also notice a slight delay in receiving some of our alarms. Any suggestions?
We are testing this scada system. It's really nice. We have made an application with 20 tags, and we want to have access to it from an external network through the vpn solution, is it possible? When we try to connect using the get from workstation option and setting the ip for vpn we get an unavailable workstation message.
Any advise on address tags for a s7-1200 example Tank level located at DB45.4 its a real (float) address and a Boolean address of say DB45.DBX1.4 I have tried multiple ways but I keep getting a 256 error saying bad address. Maybe an integer to like DB6.INT46. I read the help file and tried the 3 differnt ways but kept saying wrong 256
I have a String Entry connected to a String I/O tag. The value of the String I/O is now my name. If I click it, it becomes editable. But I want it to be locked, uneditable and unselectable. I can toggle Enable Output on the String I/O, this prevents editing. But the blinking dash is still there. I have tried making a opaque square on top of the text, that can
I have a large mobile treatment facility that has not been operated in 4 or 5 years. I just recently refurbished the entire set up and went to launch the scada computer only to find out it is completely shot. I have an old back up of the scada folder but it does not tell me what SCADA program was used to develop. I am hoping that I can utilize VT Scada to import the old programming but have no id
I think there is some bug related to the Selector Switches. I have spent countless hours on this, and by accident found a way to make it work. Meaning this must be some bug.
If I make more than a couple Selector Switches, the next one appear with no data. Like 40310 below. I have the exact same settings, because I copy the working Switch. I only change the adress. Scanning

I want to know where should we use SetBit Function and how it can be used. The syntax SetBit(Tag, 2, 1); is not working in my system. Please let me know the correct syntax and where it should be written.
I have made some custom widgets with several settings, digital- and analog tags. I now entered a problem. See the widget below:
I will animate the dash-bar to move up and down according to some analog value, this is no problem. But I want everything outside the dark box to be invisible. Inserting the widget to a page makes it look like this: But I want it to look like this:
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
