PLC Connect, Trend Display + drag and drop?
System details 800xa, V 5.0 sp2 rev e
I am wondering if there is a good way to put log configuration and trend display on PLC Connect composite objects. They are generally built this way (when looking at control structure).
The composite object is where we put our faceplates, and graphical objects.
We put Log Configuration on the value(s) that need logging.
And we put Trend Display on the composite object and configure it to read from the value(s) we want to show.
Now, right clicking on an object and choosing "trend display", shows a display with the value(s) we want.
But, if we drag and drop this object to another allready open trend display (from an open display, or from the control structure), it will not display the values, like we are used to with regular 800xA tags/objects.
Anyone done this? One workaround is to put all faceplates and graphical objects down on "value1", and it will work when dragging from a graphic display, but it seems counter-intuitive to have these things on a child object, and not the tag/parent object, and it will not work if you drag an object from the control/functional structure.
