  1. Thanks for the UDFB, Flex727. So I'm struggling to understand how I incorporate this into my logic. I called the function in my main function and entered my UTC in the A field, this worked as I was able to confirm in online mode that the UDFB parsed out the hour, minutes, seconds, days, etc. I assigned an ASCII tag to the the B Field of the Call Function, but there was no resultant output in that field. I'm wondering if I need to do something with the logic in the last rung (Region2.Rung8) the comments say "Placing the result" Thanks for any help you can provide!
  2. I need to output a time/date stamp to a DTI in the format dd-mmm-yyyy hh:nn:ss. I am able to output the time/date stamp using the "Date Time to UTC" function, but this outputs in a numeric format, which I believe is Unix Time. Is there a way to then convert that format to my desired format?
  3. Thanks for the reply Saragani, can you explain to me what "Build-All" does? On my version it has "Rebuild-All", which I assume does the same thing.
  4. I would like to clear all the data in a certain struct. I thought I was able to do that using the Reset Numeric function. I entered the name of the struct in the function box tag and then erased the period. For some reason, however, the data is not being cleared in the struct. Am I wrong in how I set this up, or am I overlooking something?
  5. I am working on a project where I would like the operator to scan a barcode to input data into several fields. If I enable the USB for HID Device I can get the barcode to scan into a field, but only when I first touch that field to open the on-screen keyboard (and oddly enough I have to press a key on the keyboard before the scanner will fill in the field). I am wanting the operator to be able to initiate these inputs without touching the screen first. I have logic written using the COM Rx function, followed by Copy Buffer to Tag. When online, I can see the scanned data in the buffer field, but no data is filling in the desired field. I'm not sure if I need to somehow key focus onto the field I want. Also, after the first scan I would like to be able to automatically focus on the next field where the buffer will be copied to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. I have a DTI in which I want to search a column for a string with a specific prefix. The column contains strings of 25 characters each with a unique 3 letter prefix. How can I perform a search returning a match for a given prefix? In other words, I want to return the string with prefix "ABC". Thanks in advance!
  7. Thanks for the reply Joe Tauser, that looks like exactly what I was looking for! (Not sure how I overlooked it...) I'm not sure what to put in the B field, if I want to confirm that the Source String is 10 characters, what would I put in the "Length Result" (B field)?
  8. I am working on a project that requires an operator to enter a field (on the HMI Screen) by scanning a bar code. I want to be able to confirm that the scanned field has a specific number of characters. The field is linked to a tag that is an ASCII string. It will be an alphanumeric string 25 characters long, and I want to confirm that the scan in fact inputs all 25 characters. Any thoughts on how to do that would be much appreciated!
  9. Thanks ORSO2001! That was exactly what I was looking for. It looks like it added an action that was empty by default. I appreciate your help.
  10. Upon analyzing my project, several error messages were produced concerning fixed text on my HMI module screens. The error description is "missing tag action 0". I assume this is talking about the "Tag: Touch Enable" under attributes in Properties Window. If I mouse over that element it tells me the Touch property is enabled by default. How do I disable this, so that the text is not touch enabled? I looked in a sample project and the attributes of a fixed test element were the same as mine (enabled). Any help would be appreciated!
