Find out exact size display in 800xa 6 for graphics based if monitor is 1920x1080?
We are using HMI (24") with Full HD resolution 1920 x 1080.
I checked in Tab Demo, Plant in Functional Structure, it is showing 1036 x 736. Which seems not true as it is smaller size. So how to find out exact screen size which is fit after choosing Top Title/Alarm/Bottom Tabs in Workstation Structure. I want it dynamic (fit to display) not manually entering Height and Width.
Hi, Install Demo DAT file from C:program files/Demo folder.After installing the DAT file, Demo object will be installed in Function structure of 800xA system. Size display aspect will appear in Demo object and use this Size display to check exact display height and width by browsing into operator workplace.
You need to show the show the display in the actual operator workplace (not in the Engineering workplace or plant explorer), hide the Windows taskbar and press F11 to get operator workplace in full screen mode. When you added the text boxed as said before. ( Set the display prensentationmode property to "anchored" add two text elements to your display. Set text to String(_Height) on one text element and on the other to String(_Width). ) You will find the correct values. You can set the Height to _Height and Width to _Width if you want dynamic values. I wouldn't do that on a graphics display as you could get rugby bal shaped pumps then.
I do use the _Width if I want to span a graphic element across the width of the display. You can to some math as well, setting x=8 and width = _Width - 16 will give you equal space on the left and on the right.
And with the correct presentationmode and dynamic values you can make a graphic element for a typical which can be stretched without the letters being stretched so it can display a large value when needed. You can also add an input property to switch between sizes.
