Difference when loading or switching windows under V7.9 and V8.0.4

For windows that contain templates, when opening or changing a window under 8.0.4 we see the templates display an error for about a second as if the tags for this template do not yet have a valid value. With 7.9 this is a one-off phenomenon per window, if a window that has already been opened has been reopened or changed for a second time, the template will immediately provide the correct information. It seems that under 7.9 certain information per window ends up in a cache (?) and that this does not happen with 8.0.4.
Is this a phenomenon that other users also have and is this perhaps dependent on a setting we have missed so far?

It’s not exactly what you think. The real cause here is that tag bindings in 8.0.x start with a ‘null’ value with bad quality, that then gets quickly replaced by a ‘real’ value from the tag read. In 7.9, bindings initialized with some placeholder value dependent upon the data type; i.e. -1 for integers. We’re actually probably going to change that behavior, due to the unintended negative effects in Vision; I believe that’s going to land within the next few releases (8.0.8-8.0.10, likely).

Thanks in advance!

Hi @PGriffith
According to Ignition Release Notes, this issue might be resolved in RC8.0.10RC1

Do you have any ETA for that release? That behavior is completely preventing us from using any Ignition 8.X.X versions.
