Cascade Datetime/Dropdown selected value from ViewA to ViewB

I have created multiple views in Ignition perspective. Now I want to pass datetime value selected by user (ViewA) that I want to cascade to another view (ViewB). How can I achieve this?

Create a session variable to hold the date.

  • In Project Browser select Perspective.
  • In Perspective Property Editor | SESSION CUSTOM click Add Custom Property. Create your variable. e.g. sessStartDate.
  • On the Datetime component bind the value property to the session variable. Set the binding as "Bidirectional" so that the variable is updated by the selection.

On any views that need the date it is now available in the session variable.

In general, this is how to create a global scope variable in Perspective.
