Like vision that we can access UDT custom properties Meta data like tag path in template how we can do the same thing in perspective embedded view?
I mean when I bind UDT to param of view how I can get the tag path of that UDT in view?
I don’t want to pass UDT tagpath as string into param of view. I want user drag and drop and bind UDT to my template in perspective.
The problem is if my template open popup view in it, i don’t know how to pass UDT to it.
Not an answer to your question, but…
Ever since I started using Ignition and became aware through experience of the limitations of using UDT-type parameters, I’ve stayed away from using them like the plague… Despite the benefit you get from being able to drag/drop UDT instances to create your graphics, I find their numerous limitations prohibitive
Are you sure you don’t want to pass a tagpath?
Yes, Until now I use tagPath. But in vision binding UDT has tagpath as meta data in template so it solve all of our problem.
But really I can’t figure it out how dropConfig->udts_>action: bind, will work.
There is no example, even university has video for action:tagPath NOT bind.
Hi nader.chinichian, have you found a solution for action: bind ? I have the same issue with perspective…
No and I have to use tag path for accessing all meta data.
It is not an easy as binding but it works perfectly with any bug.
I found a way to use bindded UDT’s, for me it works well.
First I build a function to get value i want
def GetUdtValue(data, strKey):
for i in range(len(list(data))):
if list(data)[i] == strKey:
return GetUdtValue(data[list(data)[i]], strKey)
And on my control…
