I am creating an summary page and would like to have set of rectangles which let user to 'view' status of other windows from there. The idea is similar to Picture Window in WINCC, where I can point to picture name and importantly have choice how to scale into the container rectangle.
I thing in that can have strecthed, scaled, or no scale which will show horizontal and vertical scroll bars on the rectangle.
Is there anything in Ignition that will let me achieve this? I am using v7.9
You have this tagged as Perspective, but that didn't exist in Ignition 7.9; are you sure your version is correct, or did you mean a different module such as Vision? This clarification will help us to provide the correct answer.
I'm not familiar with winCC, but if I'm inferring correctly, this is a preview with mouse hover? If so, using Richards picture idea could work with Vision's mouseover text. Here is a method I developed some time ago that accomplishes this:
Picture window in WIN CC is not a simple object to show a picture but more like the embedded view in Perspective, a window into another.
I don't think vision have this possibility. The only work around that could maybe work is by the use of templates.
with picture window, i will still see live values from the source picture.
I think the suggestion to make use of templates makes sense - although I don't think this will be the ideal solution, since it means I will have a set of templates for each picture that I want to have.
It would be nice though, if this feature is available. it will help in migrating wincc pages across to ignition.
