Dynamic load and display jpeg or tiff image file in 800xA HMI
I am trying to display .tif image file in the PG2 graphics editor 5.1 FP4 800xA version. I am able to upload the images in the NLS Resource data aspect and able to display in the HMI but my requirement is to access the images directly from the windows folder and later I will update the image files with the same name, PG2 screen should load the new image.
Is it possible to achieve this in 800xA 5.1 FP4 Version ?
Thanks in advance.
A previous poster embedded the images into a web page and displayed that with an aspect view
The issue is that the Resources Data is static. You load the original image into a resource, and the resource is then distributed to the individual workstations so that it can be displayed. This prevents problems with the original image not being accessible from every workstation in the system.
Your other option might be to use an ActiveX Image viewer and embed the activeX control into your PG2 Graphic. You would need to install the ActiveX control onto every workstation and make the image available on a shared drive or directory.
