Is it possible to build a tag that can determine the elevation of my facility based upon the coordinantes in the parent site tag?

Or is it possible build a widget that references the Long. and Lat. of the parent site tag to determine site's elevation?

Thanks in advance!

Programming question:

I'm using an Analog output (VTS Datatype) writing to a PLC DINT by way of a "Numeric Input" on the page to allow user to enter a passcode (EQU in PLC) to permit the action of a selector switch, right below the numeric input box.

When you enter the correct number, "it is retained in the VTS tag browser" and will work okay. But I need a way to clear it out after a minu

It appears as though you cannot pass a Universal IO - String Calculation tag configured as a string to a Script tag.

Changing the Universal tag to a Numeric Calculation, but keeping the value as a string, works just fine, the Script is able to use the parameter's string value. Downside of this is that the value of the tag does not show in the tag browser.

As well, using the legacy Calcula

I have a 4 position switch in the PLC
I need a 4 position switch to write to the PLC from Trihedral ver 12
so that it is not maintained and will match the one in the PLC

I assume I need a widget to provide an analog out to write a analog value to the PLC but I am not sure how to do it.

Can anyone help me here?

Can someone explain how to make a copy an existing application. I want to try different settings but don't want to screw up my current application.

When adding an application using the advanced option, I would think that I would want to clone from Changeset but then it warns to not re-install a changeset if the application still exists on this or another server.

I have both a hp printer and a scanner. My printer's USB port has been damaged so I decided to connect my printer with a wireless connection. It wanted a WPS pin on hp printer at that time and I found the pin after searching many websites and then connected my printer. But after that, my scanner stopped working, I tried a lot to solve that problem but failed. What should I do now?

Just a heads up that Excel has a limit of 31 characters for table names. This means that if you make a tag type with a name longer than 31 characters and export the tags to Excel, you will have a problem.

Excel will tag the tag type name and rename it to Sheet1. Or truncate it some other fashion. You make changes to the tags in that tag type and import the changes. Since VTScada can no longer

I'm trying to install VtSCADAlight on Windows 10 Pro version 1809 and having a great deal of trouble.

I've installed it on two Windows 7 workstations easily but the Windows 10 station somehow becomes disabled during the process and I have to recover using System Restore.

Another thread in this forum suggests than an overly aggressive antivirus program may be at fault. I think I've disable

I've set up a system for a customer that includes alarm notifications on Priority 1 Alarms. They would like a 2nd set of text message notifications for a smaller subset of alarms for the C-Suite - they just want to receive a text message only if one of their assets stops running. Is there a way to implement this?

Currently I think that there may be two ways that might work:

Hello, the PLC my VTSCada system talks to sends out a digital status heartbeat (boolean) alternating true/false with a period of 20 seconds.

I would like to configure VTScada to monitor this signal so that the user is notified when the PLC goes down or communications is lost.

I've read through the alarm configuration section of the manual and devised this scheme involving two alarm ta

Hello, thank you in advance for any support.

I am developing my first application, a demo system for a small municipality. The first page I am working on is for a little pump station with two pumps and a reservoir with level sensor.

Things are progressing reasonably well but I am having a few problems:

I'd like some text below my pump icon to say either "hand" or "auto" depending o

I've created a Numeric Keypad popup page (meant to be touchscreen friendly) and have created a GUIButton that when pressed is supposed to Close the Popup Window. I thought the Slay(Self()) should work but it seems to be ignored. It should be a simple thing but I've been stuck on this for a while now. I'll have to close the window after the user presses my "Enter" button as well. The "Close Page"

We've been having a bit of a weird issue. Alarm Notifications are set to send email notifications on priority 1 alarms but every now and then an Alarm notification is sent for a priority 2 alarm and only a few specific priority 2 alarms it seems.

Is there a property that I'm missing that allows this under certain circumstances?

Could you please assist me with an analog tag. I want to use the slider control to change the value of an analog input tag , this analog input tag is connected to a tank widget to give level indication.

I got it to work more than a year ago, but for some reason, it stopped working.

Im using a Click Koyo PLC and modbus addressing.The drivers are working as all the digital inputs responds.
