Codesys Download/Online Edit Boot Application

A helpful tip for all Codesys users who take advantage of the ability to perform online edits. If you use the online edits when you add a variable or make a quick code change, I would highly recommend that you set the Application->Properties->Boot Application, and set the check box to “Create Implicit boot Application on online change.”

Without this selected, in the event of a power loss, the program will revert to the last downloaded version on power up.

Also, if you mainly use the online edits for testing, you can selectively choose when to update the boot application when you go online:
