Screen Component

Recommended Posts

Using Daqfactory Lite.

I'm working with another engineer and he wants to turn off the pointer of a linear gauge (display) when the pointer goes below or above a predefined point. Is it possible? If it is possible how. I have no idea how to start.

Sure. First you need to name the gauge component so you can access it from script. Select the gauge, right click and select Component name... Give it a unique name.

Then, and I'm assuming the gauge is just displaying the value of a channel, go to the Event for that channel and put in script like this:

component.myGauge.PointerSize = (myChannel[0] > 3) * 5

where "myGauge" is the name you gave the gauge, "myChannel" is the channel, "3" is the predefined point, and "5" is the size of the pointer when its displayed.
