We are trying to develop a universal display program for the machines we build. There are a few things I would love to see in future updates for PAC Display. One of these has a lengthy work around, the other does not.
- When using the “Send Value” Operator Driven Attribute, I would like to see the Min Value and Max Value as Fixed (like it is now) or Tag Driven. I have thought about the effects of this and I thought of these solutions:
-Add a Radio button that switches from fixed to variable limits. This would allow you to assign tags to the Min and Max Value.
-Create a new Operator Driven Attribute called Send Value with Tag Limits (or similar). This will be a “Prompt for Data” only and it will have the Tag Name and a spot to put your User Message and Min/Max Tags.
-When the keyboard pops up, you can see the fixed data limits in this screen. Make it possible to edit the User Message and Min/Max values after a successful password has been entered.
- When using Download/Upload Recipe, make the Directory “Fixed”(like it is now) or a “String From Strategy”. Clients are wanting to secure these recipes on their servers vs at the machine. The path is becoming a problem as we move forward. Again, we want to develop one universal display program. Currently, we have 6 different versions and hoping to simplify this.
I am interested if there are other options too.
