I had previously asked/looked for java enabled handhelds but basically gave up on that not that it really matters with my issues.
So, we will be going with the Mobile clients with 32GB on the Gateway to compensate. This is our first Ignition project where we will providing HMI’s, Management Reporting displays, and handheld functionality (like for off-line inventory with no connection to the PLC’s). Our background is MSSQL and non-PLC hardware/software. We believe we have a handle on the HMI’s and management reporting with Ignition but are struggling somewhat with the Mobile clients. Normally, we would prompt for a bar-code scan and immediately use sql statements to process / validate / update etc. then continue collecting additional data; rinse and repeat, until we have the necessary data to complete the transaction, i.e. stock put-a-way. A lot of SQL…
So, do I understand correctly that the only way for me to navigate though the screen inputs is with the component scripting combining sql scripting in Ignition scripting and a significant amount of managing focus? SQL scripting in this environment is a real pain.
Sure wish there was a .proj that I could use as an example. Thanks for the patience and the verbosity of this post.
