  1. I personally use daqconnect.addValue() for everything. It gives me more control over exactly what data gets sent. And in your case avoids a dummy channel. I also use daqconnect.init() instead of using the menu, as it is more obvious what the data source is set to. It also allows for programmatic change of the data source.

    Markers text location and font

    Your best bet is to create a separate page for each graph, presumably duplicating the main page with 4 graphs. Then use page.printPDF() to print the appropriate page with the appropriate graph. Note that under 17.1 and earlier you have to view these 4 pages at least once before trying to print them. You can do this in a startup sequence. The viewing can be quite quick, 0.1 seconds. Releases after 17.1 will not have this requirement.
  3. There are shortcut keys you can assign in the Page properties, but usually people will create screen elements, such as a button that changes the page. To avoid creating the same menu over and over again, you can use overlaid pages. To see this in action check out the AshlandWater.ctl file in the samples folder.

    Unknown Error In Draw

    Olis, which release of DAQFactory are you using, and can you post your .ctl document and instructions on how to reproduce the failure?

    "p-Modbustcp 0010: Timeout" Error

    That is still pretty odd. Does that number actually update? Try creating a variable value control with this Expression: CH1.time[0] and see if it changes as well.
  6. Don't use the workspace to switch pages. Create buttons that change the pages and then it is easy to add script to trigger a sequence. The workspace is really designed for development, not for running your application.

    Multiple serial ports open

    Something is off then. My guess is the assignments aren't correct. Why don't you post or email us your .ctl doc so I can check. Many customers run multiple com ports so the program is certainly capable of it.

    1) Removing Markers on graph via code: You can't do it. The idea of the markers it that they are user adjustable. If you want to create a scriptable marker, use the line or axis annotations instead. 2) Enlarging font of markers description which is displayed at the bottom of the graph and also changing its location. You can create your own display and make it look however you want by referencing the MarkerA_X, MarkerA_Y variables of the graph. 3) Changing font size for values inside of dropdown Combo List. Not currently possible. 4) While using Date-time picker, option to make time as either start or end of the day selected. You can simply do the math on the result. Start of day is: floor(value / 86400) * 86400. End of day is: floor(value / 86400) * 86400 + 86400. 5) Thaw all axis, instead of x and yfrozen for graph via code. Not sure what you mean here. In code, just set XAxisFrozen and YAxisFrozen variables to 0. Having another variable to do both is redundant. 6) Also, I tried printing graph and then saving it at a specific location, but when I click browse to select a path, the Daqfactory file crashes. This is a known issue in newer versions of Windows. Put the graph on a page to itself and use the regular print instead of the right click print.

    Multiple serial ports open

    Yes you can definitely do this. What problem are you seeing when you try this? Note that if you want to create two devices that use the same serial port you should only create one port and assign it to both devices.

    "p-Modbustcp 0010: Timeout" Error

    It is hard to say. It is probably just one channel that is causing it. Either you are querying an invalid tag, or you have other settings wrong on one of your channels, such as D# set to 0 instead of the proper Modbus ID. I would go through and set the Timing of all your channels to 0, then reset them one by one until the message starts appearing. Then you'll know which channel is causing the troubles.
  11. OK, but first I have to say: DAQFactory can't collect data when it isn't running, and Windows won't buffer the data on the serial port, so there is no way for DAQFactory to acquire data on the serial port before it starts, or if it is closed and reopened. This is a Windows limitation. As to the question at hand, there are a number of posts on this forum to read data that constantly streams. The general format is something like: purge() while(1) readUntil() parsedata endwhile where the while loop also generally contains a try/catch around the readuntil/parsedata portion, with a catch() that adds a small delay. You don't need a delay otherwise, and don't want one as it can cause a backlog. The readuntil() function will generate a delay while waiting for data. As to the parsing, use the parse() function to parse each line by the comma. Then it comes down to data manipulation. So, do the high / low sides need to be combined, or do you want them in different channels? If different channels, its pretty easy: either name your channels based on a convention based on the addressing, or use the channel.addValue() function to map the addressing to D# and Channel #'s.
  12. Send the file to support at azeotech There must be something in your file that is referencing those drivers.
  13. The Trilogi error is a little unusual. I do not believe it is included in the installer anymore. It must be referenced in your document somewhere. You can send the doc to us and we can quickly check. Initcomm() just tries to get access to the serial port for communications. It does not actually send anything over the line. It's kind of like picking up a phone and listening for a dial tone. It does just that, but doesn't actually make a call, or talk with anyone. If the serial port doesn't exist, or is being used by another application it will throw an error.
  14. Section 12.7 of the user's guide covers this. Take a look and post any questions that might come up. Note that DAQFactory is subject to whatever firewall settings you have in Windows, so if you can't get it to connect, it is probably because your Windows firewall settings aren't allowing the ports (2345 - 2348 if I remember correctly)
