On most previous HMIs on other platforms, for some operator popups, such as sequence selections we add a calculator icon in the corner that when clicked open the Windows Calculator App. Just as a general tool for the operators.
Though all those platforms were windows based and obviously with Ignition being deployed across different platform I can’t assume a project will always run on windows. So I could check the OS of the client and try to call the appropriate scripts to open the native calculator app for that OS but I see that getting messy.
I was planning to build my own calculator template in the designer for doing simple arithmetic which would be built in and used inside the Vision Client, instead of opening a third-party app. However is there another way to do this? Or is there a tool which has already been developed?
If not I thought it could perhaps been thrown out there for consideration to become a standard vision component in the designer that could be added onto a vision window.
