Add new Item Types in Smartclient
is there a way to add own "Item Types" in the list of the Object Type Configuration Tool?
Such as Description, Vale etc. I would like to extend, to define own Object types.
I am not quite sure if this is the answer to your question. I have posted this solution previously, however here it is again. The attachment shows the process of adding an Object Type to the Smart Client Object Type Configuration Tool. If this is not the answer you are looking for, please provide more detail on your need.
thanks for your quick answer. I'm familiar with this procedure you posted.
What I want, is to extend the list.
Lets say I've an new function block with some properties which names doesn't fit one of the entries in the list. In this special case: Power, Runtime and Cycles. It should appear similar how in the PID graphic presentation the values for Value, Outsignal and Setpoint.
This sounds more like you may be needing a custom Query Group.
Query Group - Displays the name of the query group. A query group is a
collection of control properties grouped based on the control types.
Let me know if this is closer to what you are thinking. This might need some input from development, and if so, you would have to create a support case.
I think, a query group just filters a subset of the available item types. What I primarily need are new item types. I was hoping, that could be done by the SC admin instead of the need of the support each time a new FB is created.
But maybe the support can tell me, how to do?
