Automatic action I need....
This request is quite common, however ...
Be careful doing this kind of thing. You might want to consider whether opening a Faceplate or a graphic while the operator is already busy doing something else is actually a good idea. Also, which operator stations should the Faceplate or graphics open on.
The Application bar is a good place to put information that must be acted upon immediately. My preferred approach is to put an Aspect Link in a small graphic on the application bar which changes color ( usually to Red ) when the operator must respond ( ie when your controller variable goes true). Adding an Audible alarm can also help ensure that the operator sees the warning. The operator can then click on the aspect link and open a faceplate / graphic etc as required. But if they are already dealing with the problem - or are working on something else more important - then they can continue their current task without being interupted.
