Hi, quick question: is it possible to change X,Y position of an HMI element while the PLC program is running or are graphical elements static once downloaded?

Thanks.

You can't modify the X & Y values of an object like a indicator or button but you can have a list of images by pointer.

What exactly are you trying to do?

Ok, thanks for confirmation then.

Was just an idea for some graphic presentations. I know PLC is not the right platform for such things but was just wondering if it would've been possible to do.

Dear Fotonic,
If you are using Vision OPLC with B&W display, you can use "Moving image" dynamic object. Such object can move between two positions accordingly of variable value.
If you are very patient, you can use freehand drawing on display with functions "Draw pixel", "Draw Line", "Clear Rectangle" from the Function Blocks menu. (Utils/HMI)
