These convenient buttons for induSoft Web Studio allow you to select the duration shown on a trend. The symbol also provides a display to show the current time/date value of where the cursor is on the trend.
Range (if applicable): N/A
Description: Convenient buttons to select the duration shown on a trend. Also provides a display to show the current time/date value of where the cursor is on the trend.
Notes: Two string tags must be created for each Trend Control Object that you want this to work with. Also, you should set an initial value (most likely in the startup script).
$DurationTag = “01:00:00”
in the startup script would set the duration to 1 hour.
CursorTag: Must be a string tag to receive the Cursor Value
TagDuration: Must be a string tag
Ideas for improvement:
- Add a current selection light so you can easily determine what is the current duration
- Create in a horizontal line to fit nicely under a trend.
Here’s how to use this symbol:
Copy the .sym file into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Wonderware InduSoft Web Studio v8.0\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “Buttons”.
