  1. Hello, I've got a sreen filled with Numeric Boxes that make up a table to use for parameters. I noticed that you have "$_title" in the Keyboard Title, and you can set your own title, but is it possible to make this title variable? The columns are shifted from side to side depending on a variable, and I'd like to add a text that says something like "Column %Column_Number%, Rotation Speed" If you're wondering how the columns are set up: 4 On-Screen Columns 17 On-Screen Rows 20 Off-screen Columns 17 Off-screen Rows Thanks, Exouxas
  2. Hey, I just have some suggestions of what you could add to UniLogic, it would be great if you could consider adding at least some of these or if they're already planned, please tell me an ETA. Use struct variables for rows instead of columns. When you use struct variables for columns, it feels like I'm wasting a lot of space since the name of the values are longer than the values themselves. (16 char vs 4/5) There should be an option to switch between using column and using rows. Move variables within a struct (change order). When you make a data table, it uses a struct and the variables within in the order they were added. Make UDFB variables optional. Well, when you make a Function IN variable in a UDFB, you have to put something there. You can't leave it blank and you can't set a "default" variable there. More settings for everything. Having a plc that is easy to get started with because of the functions that are already there is ok, but if you add more settings to HMI elements and the IDE itself, you'll have a plc that can compete with both easy and complicated compeditors. I personally miss the settings for text and object size in the IDE (which is a couple of many settings you could add). On the HMI, I miss dynamic element positions and angles, and you can't change the spacing between rows in the data table. Merging HMI elements. It would be really nice if you could group up HMI elements and save them for later in the library. Thanks, Exouxas
  3. Nope, I'm still lost. What I have is a two-way "encoding" that turns decimals to hex"ish" (0-J instead of 0-F) and puts it in a string. And the other way. I have a table with one column that contains the Hex"ish" and I plan to use the row number as the decimals.
  4. Hello, I've noticed that when I create a UDFB it feels like I'm not getting enough control of it. For example in one of my UDFB's I'd like to be able to enter eighter string or an int value in one input, but you can only have one type. If I make two inputs with different types, I have to put something on both or it won't work (compilation error) Is there a way to fix this? Or is this some feature that is going to be added in the future? Thanks, Exouxas
  5. G'day! I'm having some issues retrieving info from a specific row in a table, is there an easy way to do this? I've tried using "Read Row from DTI", but it asks me to use a struct as an output with the same row structure, but I want this rows output to go into a single variable. Thanks, Exouxas
  6. Thank you for your reply, looking forward to future updates!
  7. Hello, I'm currently trying to make a PLC program and HMI interface with UniLogic. The problems I've faced so far: Is it possible to set a default colour for buttons and backgrounds? Say for example you make a new screen, it's set to light blue, when I'd like it to be a different colour. And the default colour for buttons is darker blue when it'd be great to be able to set the default colour yourself. Or if you could set your own colour palette (for example replace the dark blue with dark green, and light blue with light green). The "border thickness" of buttons doesn't work with black (FF000000). No matter how thick I set the border, it just makes the button smaller. Making "border" a taboo search word on the forum doesn't help eighter. If I make the colour FF000001 instead of FF000000, it works. So having FF000000 as the default colour isn't really that effective. I also find it very irritating how when I set a colour, if I move the mouse outside of the colour selection window it reverts back to what it was. I have moved the mouse outside of the window several times accidentally and it can be quite frustrating. When I started out with an empty screen, I tried to place a button. I accidentally tried to set the "start position" of the button outside the border of the screen, so when I released the mouse button, UniLogic crashed. Some positive things to even it out: I really like the little preview window when you hold your cursor over a screen <3 Thanks, Exouxas
