Scripting Label Values

round( (({CO2 Tanks/Tank 2 Level Row}/380)*100), 0 ) gives me the value I want.
I see prefix and Suffix fields that I am using. I see Font options, but if I change this it changes all Prefix, Suffix and values to a static setting.

How can I script this to dynamically change font and color based on value?

Tank_Value = round( (({CO2 Tanks/Tank 2 Level Row}/380)*100), 0 )
Tank_Value_Color = “red”

Tank_Value > 60,
Tank_Value_Color = “green”,
Tank_Value > 30 ,
Tank_Value_Color = “black”,
Tank_Value_Color = “red”

How do I return the tank value with the correct formatting?
I cannot even declare Tank_Value as a variable equal to round( (({CO2 Tanks/Tank 2 Level Row}/380)*100), 0 )

Wow… MSN on the ignition board? Interesting.

Right-click on the label. Go to Customizers → Style Customizer. You should then be able to change the style of the label however you wish. :slight_smile:

For the tank value try:

toInt(round( (({CO2 Tanks/Tank 2 Level Row}/380)*100), 0 ))

I think the round function coerces the value to a float, even though it (the value) needs to be an integer…

I am looking for a way to script so that my labels will dynamically change.

so if my value is 88 my output would look like this:
My Value is [color=#00FF00] 88[/color]

so if my value is 40 my output would look like this:
My Value is [color=#FFFF00] 40[/color]

so if my value is 15 my output would look like this:
My Value is [color=#FF0000]15 [/color]

Ah! You should be abel to do it as html. I can’t give an example quite yet 'cause I’m on my way to a meeting.

After it’s over, I’ll post an example window… :slight_smile:

I would really appreciate that. I am having a hard time knowing where I can input logic and how and where to return to and from. If only it was as simple as php or .net....

css/html formatting options would be great. I don't know how to make it dynamic. The user manual only gives snip-its.

Here you go.

I added a dynamic property to the label called StatusColor. It holds the color name according to the setpoint values (I used the cascaded If-Then you posted earlier. :wink: )

The Text property is a concatenated string that puts together all the html code to get the disired output.

Oh this is beautiful.

Do you have anymore examples of how to use scripting. I learned more with your exported window in minutes than I have from reading the user manual for days.

Thank you sir. I wish there are some kind of like or mod points for this. Thumbs up and thank you for your time.

The answer is, of course, "It depends"... :laughing:

I've got quite a bit of stuff scattered around on the forum, some more stuff here at work. Whether it's actually useful or not is a matter of some conjecture! :mrgreen:

Usually, I'll make a window for whatever someone is trying to do, keeping it as self-contained as possible.

go easy,first post, only started messing with this today (in my “spare” time)
My question is to confirm whether I need scripting to do the value conversions on a window from the PLC counts. I searched for “4095” and found nothing.
SO, Ignition is such that one embeds a script for such conversion for each indiv value, everytime it is used?
I’ll continue to mess about, but I read 2 PLC registers and the values did not match the counts I saw in my PLC view. The tags just declared as unsigned 16bit if I recall. It’s probably something basic.
Also, I presume the *.vwin scripts I see in posts must be viewed in Ignition?

No worries! Everyone is new at one time! :slight_smile:

I get to use my stock answer for such things: "It depends." Seriously, though, an example of what is in the PLC register to what you're seeing in Ignition will go a long way. My gut tells me that that the PLC register is in BCD, but it's something to verify before I go completely off-base.

Oh! Almost forgot… okay, I did forget. But I remembered, and that’s the important thing! :laughing: What PLC are you using? A PLC side solution likely exists as well. That way you have extra options. That whole “multiple ways to skin a cat” thing, which is good… unless you’re a cat… :unamused:
