I have a feature request for Pac Display. We have a pretty large display project that runs several test cells we have. So, in other words lots of different windows. Well, several of our cells have a few PID’s running on them.
I have PID buttons set up to view the PID’s, but whenever I switch windows they close. It would really be beneficial to view the PID windows over the course of time, lets say off to the side in a pop up window, but still be able to move around within our project and do other things.
I have messed around with the “All Others” settings, but no matter what, whenever the window that has the PID button on it is closed, the PID window closes. So, I guess to get around to the feature request it would be nice to A) be able to have some kind of window setting for the PID windows, and B) it would be nice to have “New Action” of “No change” so we could set one window to leave as it is and then be able to deal with the “All Others” settings. Currently I have to explicitly select all the windows to do an open/close operation. We have a lot of windows…
I know there is a little bit of a work around to my problem and that is to probably make a new window with supertrends and text inputs and then deal with those window settings. Or I suppose put the PID buttons on a seperate window that I can leave open. I guess the big thing is we have a lot of windows in our project so I like to ensure the ones we are not using get closed to prevent a ton of windows open in the background.
Hopefully all of my rambling makes sense.
