I have 3 serial components for my machine, I would like them to always be active. It appears they are only active if the window is open. Does this mean I need to put them in my nav window so they are always active or am I missing something?
Also, I am gathering data ~ every 2 seconds and wish to data log everything (about 8 values) from the serial component. What I cam up with was to write everything to tags, then use a transaction group to log everything. Is this the best way to do it, our should I do the SQL directly in the afterParse event?
