Has anyone done this yet?

Hi,

I  want to remote to a compute stick computer attached to a large screen TV, to show the screen on the V700.

Also while trying the Remote Operator which is cool, I wonder if the little Icon for changing back from full screen could be hidden until you move a mouse to actually click on the icon.

Thanks,

Don

I've implemented your feature request for hiding the "Exit full screen" icon (It will appear at start, but will disappear after few seconds, and re-appear when the mouse is over the right top edge).

Another feature is "Reconnect on error" which is extremely good when you have a lot PLCs you are connected to, and one of them is having a communication error.

When this option is turned on, Remote Operator will try to reconnect after 6 seconds.

 

These features will be available in Remote Operator 1.0.67

All right :) 

Just came back to the forum to see if anything was new and I found this!

Thanks so very much as I have been experiencing disconnections a lot and the IT dept. guy has yet to figure it out.

 

Thanks Again,

Don

Hi Saragani,

Well the icon does disappear, but I'm using a black background, so now it's a light gray square.

Just installed the new version today, and I had to delete any ur2 files I had as they were no longer compatible.

After 4 hours so far no disconnection.

Thanks,

Don

I'll have to check the thing with the light gray square. 

I think I change its opacity to 0 (so I don't know why you are seeing a gray square), but I might be remember it wrong, so I need to look into the code.

You are correct.

I do have the image opacity changed from 1 to 0 (so it disappears), but it is shown on a window, which has a gray background. Trying to make it have transparent background makes the UI look weird (I can see the close buttons of the window behind it). 

Things are much easier in WPF than in WinForms.

 

The best I can do, is give that window a background like the PLC has. That would work for you and for most people.

That would work great :)

 

Also it's been over 24 hrs. without a single disconnect of 2 compute sticks on 2 large screen TV's going to one  V700. ( 1 at the fastest update rate of 100ms and the other at 1 sec,)

Things are looking good!

Well I guess I spoke to soon, but I waited a while before posting but it happened again;

When it looses it's connection it tries to re-connect but never does connect as something goes wrong with the socket, even after stopping Remote Operator and then restarting it has no effect, as it still tries to connect but does not, I have to change the port (socket) in order to get it going again.

Well I think I'm going to go to a wired connection instead of wireless, as there are reports that the compute sticks drop connections.

 

Thanks,

Don

Don, try to play with System Integers SI103...SI110. Probably you have set them to 0, i.e. OPLC will keep the dead connection for infinite time. If you put some meaningful value to Socket TCP  keep alive and TCP keep connection (something between 100 and 600 is suitable), the dead connection will be closed by OPLC  and Remote Operator can open them again.
