CamEra Posted September 16, 2008 Share Posted September 16, 2008 Hi, Is it possible to hide screen elements that are not to be used. The reason for my question is that I am setting up a control system for 6 tanks controlled via a Carel Modbus Gateway. No trouble in setting that up and it is happily talking to the Carel Contollers and to DaqFactory and allowing me to get the temperature information from the tanks as well as set the setpoints in the Carel Controllers. The idea is that the tanks will be cycled through a typical daily temperature regime, so each hour (or as often as required) the set point in the Carel Controller for each tank will be changed based on a csv file, the Carel Controller then controls a large heat pump which controls the temperature in the tank. The Carel Controller handles all the hard work keeping the tank to the correct temperature as well as switching the relays for the heat pumps - in reality a very simple system to set up and maintain. Depending on the experiment that is to be run not all the tanks maybe used so I was wondering if it was possible to have a dialog when the DaqFactory file is loaded where the user chooses what tanks are in operation - series of radio buttons or whatever, and then the main screen that shows all the present temperatures from all tanks and their set points would be adjusted so that only those tanks in operation would be displayed. same would go for screens with graphs on, only those tanks being used would be displayed.
