Using the Bulk Data Manager in order to Graphic Display Editing.
Is it Possible to Edit the HMI graphical Pages (e.g. Graphic Display PG2 Aspects) or Import specified Icons and shapes into the Graphic Display Without Using the Graphic Builder?
AFAIK there are 2 ways, however I haven't tested them yet :
1.) GraphicsXmlTool.exe located in Program Files ... in /bin folder where Process Portal A was installed. This tool can export PG2 XML source code and import back your modified XML to the 800xA. It is not difficult to understand PG2 xml source. You can modify it by text editor or by script.
GraphicsXmlTool is not supported currently by ABB. It was used by ABB as auxiliary tool during PG2 development.
2.) GDL - makes it possible to create graphic elements and displays using .NET. Sadly I don't have more information. I would appreciate very much if somebody can add details.
