I am replacing an existing iFix4.0 system with a new Ignition 8.1 platform. The existing iFix system has a text (TX) tag with address DB103.DBB 4U and the value of that tag is “Vz”.
I am trying to create a string tag in Ignition to give me the same value. I initially tried the item path [L1_Master]DB103,STRING4.2 and I get the value of “Bu VzVzSmVz BuRmRfRfP1RfBuRfC|C|P1BuP1P6P1P6”.
With a length of 2 I would only expect 2 characters. However, when I change the length to 1 there is no change in the value. Anyone run into this issue? Thanks
