calling another runtime from daq factory


Recommended Posts


Is it possible to call another runtime from daqfactory, for example

when monitoring machines and production would it be possible to click a button and transfer to another runtime for lighting / heating control

we are running in full screen mode and do no want multiple runtimes open to save memory use

can this be done

Well, first I have to ask why you wouldn't just combine your two runtimes into a single document.

There is no built in facility for this, but I suppose you could do it by triggering a second instance of DF loading the other runtime, and then quiting the primary instance immediately. Use system.shellexecute() to trigger the second instance, and system.quit() to quit the first. There would, however, be a pretty long (maybe 15-30 seconds) delay. I still recommend putting everything in one runtime.
