In an effort to use a nice high resolution .tif image for our main HMI screen we found that the image management tool does not support a .tif file format. Additionally, one can’t drag a .tif onto a window in the designer like you can a SVG.
Ignition Tech Support told me that it would be possible to use “Java Advanced Imaging API”, which I am happy to use.
In a similar manner I have previously I used the “Extension Functions” section of a “Component Scripting” window to get under the hood of ignition. I imported classes from the JFreeChart library, and had those scripts in the method titled “ConfigureChart”, which is inside the “Extension Functions” section of a component scripting window.
See screenshot below.
My question is this: when I asked ignition tech support where to add this new custom method I was about to write, he did not know and told me he couldn’t help. Where can I add this new extension function I am about to write to once again get under the hood of ignition?
