InduSoft is always busy improving the tools that make developing applications easier and quicker, and we want to share our efforts with you! We’re working on creating one new symbol each week that you can employ in your applications. Please feel free to modify and share these symbols, and tell us what you want to see! We’re always interested in hearing from you what symbols or symbol libraries you’re looking for.
Here’s this week’s symbol, Vertical and Horizontal Meters
Download these Symbols for InduSoft Web Studio
Name: VerticalMeterBlue_01.sym, VerticalMeterGreen_01.sym, VerticalMeterRed_01.sym, VerticalMeterYellow_01.sym, HorizontalMeterBlue_01.sym, HorizontalMeterGreen_01.sym, HorizontalMeterRed_01.sym, HorizontalMeterYellow_01.sym
Custom Properties: TagName, Label, Min, Max
Range (if applicable): +/- 1000 (maybe more)
Description: This symbol set provides 8 different meters, both horizontal and vertical orientation. Easily display your HMI or SCADA information!
- These symbols were created primarily for use on a PC running on a desktop or server operating system, but with some slight modifications, can be made to look great on Embedded Operating Systems. You will should have “Enable Enhanced Graphics” turned on in the Project-Viewer settings.
- These are made of 100% native InduSoft Web Studio object, no pictures.
- These symbols currently display only the integer portion in the value field. They will work with Real type tags, but the display will truncate the value to just the integer.
Ideas for improvement:
- Add more Colors, or so the colors stack
- Make different sizes.
- Add the ability to choose the number of decimal points to display
- Add a variation that implements a set point slider and display value
Unzip and copy the .sym files into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\InduSoft Web Studio v7.1\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “Meters”.
