Version 8.5 (Upgrading is not an option for this Customer)
Q1. How do you center a Chart on displayed screen area (besides frantically clicking on zoom out button or moving the Horiz/vertical scroll bars? It seems charts can get hidden (out of sight) at times or depending on who played around with PacControl last time. Is there a hotkey combo that can be used to do this?
Q2. Is going in to debug mode the only way to put a Controller in to RUN and STOP modes?
Q3. Ival vs. Xval Clarification.
If I command an output to Turn ON, it's Ival becomes "ON" but it's Xval can be at "OFF STATE" (disconnected I/O Rack). So if I have logic like.......
If [B]MyOutput == 1[/B] then .........
In the above expression, is it comparing the Ival or Xval to see if it is equal 1?
[B][U]PacDisplay Runtime Pro:
Q4.[/U][/B] Is it possible to create a Time stamped Historical Alarm/event Log on a screen? similar to the Event log but not a pop-up screen but on a Disply screen? (I only need to hold last 10 or 20 events)
Q5. I am guessing Groove is not an option for this customer due to the Version of Firmware that they are running. Does PacDisplay Pro 8.5 have Built in Web Server Functionality
Q6. After You use the menu option [View] "Hide MenuBar", how do you get it back without closing the PacDisplay runtime first and opening it again? (If all the windows are closed when menu bar is hidden, I could not find a way to get a window to open without shutting down the run time)
Q7. What does the Save to Flash option do when pressed? Write to a File? Write to Registry? Nothing?
Q8. What does the Auto Run option do? Nothing? With this option enabled and save to flash pressed, I shut down the running sim and restarted. But previously saved Logic did not start and run as was evident by the Pacdisplay Runtime that was working prior to the Sim shutdown/restart.
These two options are not covered in the Readme file nor the associated PDF.
It seems that there is a drastic Loop time difference (in a good way) between Pacsim 8.5 vs. Pacsim 9.3. Same Chart that takes ~ 40 miiliseconds of loop time in Version 8.5 only takes 0.4 milliseconds in Pacsim version 9.3.
