No, I’m talking about the PID Viewer in PAC Display. So, if I put a PID button on a PAC Display window, lets call it window x, and use that button to open up the PID Viewer. Now, I want to move over to window y, I don’t need window x anymore. So, when I click on my button that is set up with the window control dynamic attribute to open up window y, as soon as window x is closed the PID viewer gets closed with window x.
Now you might ask, why did you close window x, just leave it open. Well, our display project has a lot of windows that we switch between. I normally try to keep the number of windows that we have open at any one time to a minimum. Also, we don’t need to have the PID Viewer up on a normal basis but it is nice to have that every now and then.
There are a few things I could possibly do different, like make one window that has all the PID Viewer buttons on that one window and I would always leave that window open, just in the background. This is where it would be nice to have an exception to the “All Others” part of the window control. Because right now, if I have it set to close all other except for the window I want to open, it would close the PID Viewer window which in turn closes the PID Viewer itself. So I would have to change the “All Others” setting to “no change” and explicitly select all of the other windows and make them close. When you have a lot of windows and a lot of buttons controlling the windows we switch between, that is going to be a very tedious process.
Hopefully this explains my situation better, and thanks for your thoughts on this.
