Hello, So I was testing out the system.gui.openDesktop to open up a new Desktop window to display a popup. The error I am receiving is:
java.lang.Exception: java.lang.Exception: Secondary desktop “Multi Trend” already exists.
caused by Exception: Secondary desktop “Multi Trend” already exists. "
But I want to have information to be displayed in the same “Multi Trend” window that I created. Is there a way for me to use the same window?
Could you share the function parameters you are using?
There is no limitation like that - you can open many desktops all using the same Window. That error indicates you are running the function with parameters for a desktop that already exists.
You may be running into a syntax error related to the parameters, so you will want to review the documentation for the function: system.gui.openDesktop - Ignition User Manual 8.1 - Ignition Documentation
