Fernando Castro Posted February 3, 2022 Report Share Posted February 3, 2022 Hi all, seems that my needs are currently transcending beyond the visilogic capabilities and I need to get creative. I have a recipe based program wich right now is using an SD card to read and load UDT files so, however, it seems that we will be using more recipes in the future and we need that those recipes will be easy to read and understand by the operators so given the current limitation is 8 characters that may be a little more challenging than we tough, also, the recipe deployment to all our machines will be challenging since some recipes will be having many versions due to the nature of the process and the R&D going on. so, I was thinking of maybe using some kind of "encryption" algorithm to create an 8 characters name for the file based on the description. the problem will be that I need to be able to list how many files I have on the SD, then get the name of each card to process that and list the equivalent human-readable on the screen that way the user will only see a list of human-understandable names and there is less potential of them making the wrong selection. But as I was able to see there isn't any option to get the names of files on an sd card, seems that filename is always an input for the sd card function blocks Any ideas?
