Simple Serial Program

This program will send serial data ("ABC") out the COM port when a button is pressed. It will also display incoming serial data as a text object on the screen. This is a basic program for those starting to work with serial data. This program was compiled using iX Developer 2.10. SP3 (2.16.154).

Screensaver with optional auto-logout

This program has a timer that will count when the panel is inactive. When it reaches the set time (InactiveTimeout tag), it will switch screens to a screensaver screen and dim the panel. An alternative version will also log off any currently logged in user. To use this version, you will need to unco...

Re: Upload button disable automatically

Tushar,

Is the source code option enabled for the project you are attempting to upload? If it has not been enabled then the button will be grayed out. By default source code is not loaded onto the panel to protect developers who sell their programs with the panels. Please see the screenshot below:

Re: Format of hh:mm:ss

Are you trying to parse a total number of seconds from the PLC into hh:mm:ss to display? What exactly are you trying to do with this?

Re: Simple logic

Do you still need help with this? What is the code that is calling the script module? Usually you have some kind of trigger (iX is event driven), so something like a button press or a tag value change and then you call the script module like this: Globals.[name of script module].[name of method](any...

Re: Playing and Stopping a video by a tag status

There are a couple of ways I would go about this. Please remember that iX Developer is event driven. So we need something to trigger the video (like a tag change you mentioned above). The first way I would go about it is to go to the screen with the media player on it and have some kind of a trigger...

It is built for a PC application. It will play a sound while an alarm is active and stop playing once it is either acknowledged or ...

Play mp3 When Alarm Triggered

This sample program will play a .mp3 file when an alarm is triggered. It will loop the sound and keep playing until the alarm is either acknowledged or the condition is cleared. The project takes advantage of aliasing so that there is only one screen with the media player on it, but three instances ...

Re: Crash on build

I downloaded and ran your project. Is this a new installation of iX Developer? The most common cause of that error is when iX Developer is installed using the NeoSetup.msi instead of the Setup.exe (see this link: http://ixtalk.beijerelectronics.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1766). NeoSetup only installs t...

Unix Timestamp Converter (POSIX)

This sample program takes a total number of seconds (normally from a PLC) and adds it to the Unix epoch 1/1/1970 (AKA POSIX). It then displays the current time in human readable format.

This program was compiled using iX Developer 2.10 SP1 (2.15.469).
