  1. Just to clarify: the 'run as admin' is necessary for UniLogic at all, the Install does behind the scene gymnastics, so it isn't an issue. Also, I just spoke to the Saraguru - just be aware that although this will be added to the Utilities he mentioned, it is going to take a little time. We try :-) We're trying :-)
  2. There are certain elements that may not have Help topics yet; but context-sensitive Help will appear for those that do.
  3. Six year winning streak! We are very proud to announce that Samba 7" joins the ranks of Unitronics’ products that have been honored by Control Engineers’ Choice Award. Samba won the award in the category of Hardware – integrated HMI controllers. Read more about it here.
  4. Unfortunately, I can't do anything about it, Joe is right. The Help for FBs is separate from the Help for the VisiLogic main program, because the FBs themselves are separate modules, which allows FBs to be updated independently. A limitation of the .chm Help format is the inability to link to individual topics in other .chms. I just this minute did something that should prove helpful, though. I don't know whether or not to feel like an utter idiot for not thinking of this 10 years ago - because the issue is at least that old - or very proud of myself for thinking of it now, at 6:30 am in the sunny Middle East, before I've even -good lord - had my coffee. The next version of VisiLogic Help will contain a topic called MODBUS Slave Addressing, which will at least come up in Search. tell the user to click on a link to open the MODBUS.chm, and look for the topic Slave Addressing. Not very elegant, but at some sort of improvement. It will be in the next VL release.
  5. Hi guys! In which cases do you want to use the R/W mixed? Uni to Uni, Uni to Visi, Uni to other?
  6. Hi people! You may want to check out my blog post regarding our UniLogic Tech Tidbits on YouTube:
  7. If you haven't checked out the Unitronics Youtube for awhile, you may want to check out our UniLogic Tech Tidbits Playlist. The most recent Tidbit shows you how to create your own, reusable HMI Custom Controls. After you create a control, you can drag and drop it from the Solution Explorer, export/import it between projects as .uluce files, or add it to the Library. You can also define tags that are local to a specific Custom Control, these tags will be exported/imported along with the control. It's all in the link below!
  8. My apologies. The request was looked into, and has proved impossible to implement - or rather, not impossible, but not practical in terms of the facts. The gauges are rendered as a graphic image. To enable these values to come from tags would mean that the PLC would need to draw the values, and calculate the locations, and in the case of the circular gauges, the ranges are radial...the overhead required is just too much. Again, I apologize. The request was indeed added, but could not be honored, and I should have reported this.
  9. There is a Help Topic: Customizing your UniLogic Environment. It has a .gif that shows how to float panes
  10. I have to thank Joe Tauser for that. He did an LOT of QA on those timer diagrams.
  11. It is certainly possible. If I get more requests, I will submit a feature request. The HW docs now live in a management system, for reasons having to do with standards, and this co,pmlicates matters. When we originally set up the HW Library install, the docs lived in a network folder, which made it very easy for us.
  12. Hi Define a Data Sampler with multiple feeds, as explained in the Help topic Trends. The feeds show up as curves. (Use the topic HE: Trends, NOT Creating a Trend graph. While I was checking this, I discovered a bug in the Help file) There is also a how-to video.
  13. We've all been there, done that, have the t-shirt!! glad it's working!
  14. We really do need to continue to moderate responses. However, we have taken some steps to reduce the wait time--hope you will note an improvement
  15. Hi There are three topics for PID. One of them is PID Tips. Have you seen this topic? Is it of any help?
  16. Regarding the Help file--you are correct regarding the array functions. I hope to have this corrected by the next release.
  17. Thank you! I am forwarding your request to the team. Keep 'em coming

  19. This is so cool!!! Great application!
  20. We no longer publish this because people would install the "Library", not update it, and then use outdated specs, which created problems. However, if a user requests it, we can provide the "Library" via ftp - with the understanding that that it contains the documents current at that point in time.
