understood, thanks Ben.
would it make things any easier if the page was “read-only”
or perhaps even a auto login option. It sounds easy to me but reading between the lines it seems to be a challenge.
Our client, who runs over 18 EPICS on their sites keeps hammering me about having to log in each morning to see the visuals. With the EPIC being locked away in a panel and us running a long HDMI cable for the visuals makes it a headache for them to open the panels each morning and log in via the on screen keyboard.
Here in Africa things like a wireless mouse etc etc find legs and vanish within a day.
The ability to select multiple objects and use a Find and Replace on them similar to PacDisplay. The Find and Replace, Search For: “Table Index, Offset By:” and “Exact Text” allows me to do in minutes that takes hours or even days in Groov.
You can probably pull off the layout you’re looking for with a Text Area gadget, but yeah, in general I think it was probably a mistake to bake a label in with the Value gadget: we’d have been better off with both Label and Value gadgets. It would’ve made it much easier for people to get the layouts they want.
Ben, I updated a key client to 3.3.1 yesterday and noticed a new little remember me tick box when logging into grow view
We ticked it and boom. Groov view was loading into the page without logging on each time. Smiles all around. Not sure if this new feature was directly related but thank you guys so much for getting this done. I haven’t read anything about it so maybe I missed it.
I’m not sure what you mean there: I would assume that any gadget pasted onto a page would end up at the very top of the z-stack. (or if it were a proper image editing program, it’d go one level above the current layer you have selected)
As a group, that may be, but within that group of gadgets the z-order is not preserved. If I have multiple gadgets selected that have a particular z-order, when they are copied and pasted, the z-order within the group of pasted gadgets is changed.
Would like to have the ability to RGB or other color scale options on all color options in groov view not just on shape gadget. I mean I have to make a large rectangle to color code background colors on gadgets. it’s not an option with text color only specific color options.
Being able to change the color of the range indicator’s indicator would be very useful. It is usually not ideal to it only be blue. Makes the gadget’s usefulness very limited to what color scheme you are using.
