PG2 - Dynamically Sizing Dropdown List?
I'm looking for help/suggestions on how to implment a dropdown list / "popup menu" that is capable of dynamically updating to include new "Completed Report" objects as they are created automatically by system events.
Ideally the user would click a button on a graphic display that activates a popup menu that contains a list of names associated with all "completed report" objects. The user would be able to click any of those names from the menu to launch the associated main view of the fileviewer aspect.
Is this possible?
If this isn't possible, do you have any suggestions that would allow a user to view newly generated reports without having to constantly update graphics to allow users to interact with them?
Thank you for the help.
On my plant we have done a similar thing. This are wight lists from our packaging stations. This lists are html-files, stored on a external (external to 800xA) web server.
800xA includes a small web-browser, so we do display this packaging reports in 800xA.
Html and server side scripts (like php) allowes you to do many usefull things:
- automatic refresh
- automatic updated file list
- access to external databases
- no access to 800xA objects.
