Did you know that InduSoft Web Studio Tags not only have values but many other properties too? For example you can set the Min and the Max or you can read the “TimeStamp” that shows the time the tag last changed value (to the ms).
The format is Tag->PropertyName (look for the entire list in the Technical Reference)
These symbols automatically display the Name, Value, Description (must be set for the tag), Min and Max.
The SymbolMinMaxHiLo, also sets the HiLimit and LoLimit for alarm limits. (The tag must have alarms enabled, and the Hi and Lo limits must be set)
Name: SliderMinMax_01, SliderMinMaxHiLo_01
Range (if applicable): +/- 10000 (maybe more)
Properties: TagName, Min, Max
Description: This symbol set shows the tag value, name, description, min and max. And alarm LoLimit/HiLimit
1. This symbol contains only native IWS objects.
2. This symbol works best with integers but can be used with real type tags too
3. The text boxes can be used for direct value entry
Ideas for improvement:
1. Add options for different colors
2. Add different sizes
3. Add an option to change the HiHiLimit and LoLoLimits too
Unzip and copy the .sym files 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 “Sliders”.
