800xA 5.0 onwards application & hardware download separate?
1.From 800xA Version 5.0 onwards to present 800xA5.1 FP4 the download of hardware & application software are independent so because of this if we use the system libraries(like FBD, Control modules,Control diagram editor(FP4)) on assigning the tags with parameters(like range,units,signal inversion) in the hardware for a particular application it will not reflect in the application object until we change some minor modification in the particular program (for warm download) & then we should download that application as warm download then only the tag parameters will be updated in the faceplate else the tag parameters will not reflect in the faceplate but Whereas in PCDLib its working fine.
Please suggest us how to resolve this problem.

Further to the above answer,
In standard SignalLib (Eg:SignalInRealM), InParamtersMaxInt and InParametersMinInt parameters are used to hold the hardware changes but dummy change is needed in the application to transfer the ranges to In.Parameters.Max and In.Parameters.Min to display the ranges in the faceplate.
For PCDeviceLib,it is not required to make any changes in the application to display the ranges in the faceplate.
(PCDL uses IO.Parameters.Max and IO.parameters.Min parameters to display the ranges in the faceplate)
