Just trying to get a little support on a project I’m working on. The first issue I have is with an Integer I am reading from a CompactLogix PLC.
I’ve got the project reading lots of tags and a lot of those tags are Integers that show negative values. But I have one group of tags that won’t show up as signed. On the current Citect system the tag is setup as an INT with scaling of 0-1000 raw to 0-100 actual. The running project shows the tag as having a value of “-28%”. Yet no matter what option I use for the tag in Ignition, it will always show it was 65,000 or something (basically an unsigned integer). Does anyone have any suggestions as to why Ignition would not show it as signed or how to force it to show signed?
The second question I have is with rows. Is there a way to make a whole row background change colour depending on a value in a column? E.g. I’m pulling a device index number from a database, and whenever a specific index number shows in a row, I want the whole row to change colour.
