Can somebody explain to me, how can I display keyboard on touch screen panel PC, which is without physical keyboard and mouse, when I prompt user for filename to save?
I know about system.gui.showTouchscreenKeyboard(initialText [, fontSize] [, passwordMode]), but I can’t figure it out, where to put this… so that keyboard will be visible, when the save file prompt is visible…?
This is my code:
[code]import system, datetime
now = datetime.datetime.now()
timeStamp = str(now)
nameDateFile = now.strftime("%d%m%Y_%H%M%S")
filename = “%s_stroj_avtomatsko.csv”%(nameDateFile)
capture the table and do the export
table = event.source.parent.getComponent(“Table”)
path = system.dataset.exportCSV(filename, 1, table.data)
sanity check to make sure the file we exported was created
if path != None:
contents = system.file.readFileAsString(path)
fixed = contents.replace(’.’, ‘,’) # simple replacement of periods with commas
I found TouchScreen mode operation very inconsistent (I hope this is the right word) in Ignition.
Not all components are designed to be ‘Touch mode friendly’… for example DateRange component… it’s very hard to select date range on such a small bar… and there is no way to change the height of the selection bar…
