I own and sell an ActiveX control that allows for custom messages to be displayed on screens, with formatting and embedded data. The control appears on many but not all screens in my system. Some screens have multiple controls monitoring different subsystems (they have different tags driving the message and embedded data).
I have gotten this to work in Ignition by running script (on a button) to one-time set the properties of the control. Now I need to “bind” the message number, embedded data variables, etc to each instance of the control. There doesn’t seem to be a way to bind them literally…true?
If not, can anyone suggest how to do this? I would need to run a “set properties” script to update the control any time any of say 10 or so variables changed (per instance of the contro), and it would only be valid on the client when a screen containing that control was open.
Any help or suggestions on this very much appreciated!
