I’m using one popup window with indirect tag bindings as a template for branch circuit power meters (not an actual Ignition template). Buttons on a floorplan window pass values to the popup in order to display the correct meter.
This approach was all fine and dandy until the customer requested specific configuration information be displayed for each meter (breaker layout, load type, load description, etc). This info, of course, is different for each meter.
I added individual configuration screens for each meter to the popup window. Only the configuration screen that corresponds to the meter whose button was pressed is made visible after the popup window is opened.
The problem is that all of the other configuration screens that aren’t visible are still binding when the popup window is opened. It now takes much much longer to open the popup window ( > 5s), which is not acceptable.
Is it possible to disable the components for the config screens that are not currently being displayed? Many other SCADAs/HMIs have an option to disable an entire group, but I can’t find something similar in Ignition.
