Trying out the mobile module and encountered some queries in Ignition 7.9.
java version “1.8.0_101”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_101-b13)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.101-b13, mixed mode)
Currently, launching the mobile application by bypassing the mobile project selection page by using URL: http://ipaddress:8088/main/system/mobile?project=projectName
1)While launching the mobile module application, there are two startup pages seen during launching. Is it possible to change these two screens to other pictures/frames of our choice?
2)After launching the mobile application on the mobile devices(tried using Andriod phones and iphones), it was not able to access the mobile project context menu whereby if we press and hold on our touch-sensitive device, a circular menu will appear allowing us to switch between pointer and pan/zoom mode, as well as options for logging out and entering text input. Had checked the Ingition user manual under “Using the Mobile Option”
(Launching Clients - Ignition User Manual 7.8 - Ignition Documentation)
and it seems that this feature is supposed to be available but we are unable to get the circular menu to appear while we tried to press and hold on the mobile smart phone devices.
Could you please kindly advise what are we missing or how could we get it to work?
In the Configure tab - Mobile Settings - Java Path , we just put the default as “java”, do we need to set the java path?
Thank you very much
