I’m working with a Cognex camera currently, it isn’t an In-Sight series, so it doesn’t have the simple FTP push to server functionality. It uses VisionPro and Cognex Designer which do not allow this as easy.
So, a work around I am trying to perform is to have a directory of images on the same system that Ignition is hosted on be the source location for an Image component. I would want it to be updated via the one that is most recently put into the source pathway.
I found a post by Travis that appears to be on the correct track. (How can I create a picture slider?)
I would essentially just want it to read in the newest file every time a tag value is changed. However, I am not quite sure how to go about scripting this to show the newest file, as the name is different per file.
