Re: dpSet to a powered down device blocks other comms on OPC UA driver

Thanks for the info Leopold. Am I correct to think that if I have for example 10 output signals on a single driver and the connection for one of them fails, doing a dpSet for that particular signal stops all the other 9 signals completely? Cause this seems to be happening to my two signals, if a dpS...

dpSet to a powered down device blocks other comms on OPC UA driver

I've got a OPC UA driver which is responsible for around 200 signals coming from / going to OPC KepServer which is connected to a PLC pair - PLCA and PLCB. Majority of those signals are being read by WinCC OA, there's around 10-20% which are being sent, but those are triggered by button clicks, so w...

Re: mouse pointer turns into a hand (possibly ActiveX related)

Some more info on this, the panel containing the ActiveX object is opened via a button in this particular scenario. As you hover over this button before clicking on it to open the panel, it changes into a hand - this is standard behavior on clickable buttons. It appears that whatever happens after t...

mouse pointer turns into a hand (possibly ActiveX related)

Noticed something odd recently, it might be ActiveX widget related, but also might be an internal WinCC OA bug (or a bug in how WinCC OA handles ActiveX objects). I've got a panel which holds an XpdfViewer ActiveX object: https://www.glyphandcog.com/XpdfViewer.html The object itself works fine, but ...

Re: ChildPanelOnReturn - child panel returns variables even if it's terminated using PanelOffPanel()

Cheers dbindernagel, thanks for taking the time to try this. I've had no idea how the parameter passing works, now it's much clearer. I do agree that using PanelOffPanel rather than PanelOffReturn on a panel which has been called using ChildPanelOnReturn is wrong of course, it's just that it doesn't...

Re: ChildPanelOnReturn - child panel returns variables even if it's terminated using PanelOffPanel()

Hi Leopold, thanks for your reply, here's a simple way to test this (version 3.16): 1. Create a panel to be used as a PANEL_REF, call it "TT2", create a single small rectangle with a Clicked script defined: main(mapping event) { dyn_float dreturnf; dyn_string dreturns; this.backCol = "Yellow"; Child...

ChildPanelOnReturn - child panel returns variables even if it's terminated using PanelOffPanel()

Discovered this today on a very simple set up: - clickable button object placed on a root panel which holds the following code in the "Clicked" script: main(mapping event) { dyn_float dreturnf; dyn_string dreturns; bool closed = 0; this.foreCol = "_Selected"; ChildPanelOnReturn("test.pnl", "test.pnl...

Re: Issues running WinCC OA 3.16 on Windows Enterprise LTSB 1607 (in a VM)

In the prerequisites for a redundant system it is described that you need to configure the hosts file. If a host is defined in the config file the WinCC OA manager tries to resolve the IP-address/hostname. To get this information a call of an operating system function is made. If the definition in ...

Re: Issues running WinCC OA 3.16 on Windows Enterprise LTSB 1607 (in a VM)

All I'm saying Leo is that it would be nice to know that the S8 connection times out, especially since 90% of the project runs fine and it only tries to check both servers occasionally. If you have nothing configured in the hosts file, then you'll know as the project won't run, indicating a "can't c...
