Drawing rules and object properties for D2000 Thin Client
D2000 Thin Client does not support all the properties or all the parameters of some properties. In the text below there are mentioned the differences. The properties which are not mentioned in the text are functional and they are applied to graphic objects in general if it is not written differently.
Connect object palette
The differences in D2000 Thin Client:
Object properties palette
The differences in D2000 Thin Client:
|Style||TCL supports only solid line.|
|Pattern||The full pattern is supported.|
|Line end||Type 1 is supported.|
|Line join||Type 3 is supported.|
|Monochromatic bitmap||Not supported.|
|Object is not supported.|
|3D color||Color can be set only for 3D button, 3D multiline and 3D radio button.|
|Size||Only height of 3D button and 3D radio button can be set.|
|Effects are not supported.|
Usage of graphic object in Thin Client is characterized by some differences and limitations mentioned in articles Connect object palette and Object properties palette. The other differences are described in the text below.
The description of object parameters is mentioned in the individual pages of chapter Drawing graphic objects.
|The events are not implemented (see Connect object palette, tab Script).|
|3D button||A text alignment is not implemented in object.|
The description of object parameters is mentioned in the individual pages of chapter Displayers.
|Picture displayer||Displayer does not allow the event handler (OnClick, etc.) as it is in D2000 HI.|
|Graph displayer||The parameters Line nr. according to picture instance (Define line nr.), Show controls and Frame are not supported.|
Not all the event handlers are implemented.
|Browser displayer||It shows a structured variable and a table. Data modification is disabled (you can set them but the change will not be done).|
It does not support the parameter Controlled object (tab Connect).
The rows can be neither deleted nor added.
Event handler is not supported (tab Script).
Logging displayer Column displayer
|Objects are not implemented.|
|Report||Object is not supported.|
|Progress bar||Partially limited functionality. Greyed progress bar is not supported.|
|The objects are not supported.|
The description of object parameters is mentioned in the individual pages of chapter Windows controls.
|Push button||Event handler OnUserInput is not implemented (tab Script).|
A bitmap in the button can not be aligned vertically (tab Properties).
It does not support the second bitmap (Bmp2, tab Properties).
Parameter Esc (tab Properties) is not supported.
|It does not support the bitmaps.|
|List box||List type - Dropt down combo is not implemented (parameter Type, tab Properties).|
Parameter Connected object is not implemented (tab Connect).
|Tab control||Event handler of OnGotFocus, OnLostFocus is not implemented (tab Script).|
|Group box||Group box must be placed under the objects in the picture, otherwise they can be disabled (ideally, add the group box at first and then the other objects).|
Graphic object grouping
Graphic object grouping is not supported. If the object is in a group which has the event, Thin Client will ignore it.
You can set colors of axes and graph area in the configuration. The graph supports more Y axes, they can be static or dynamic.
The graphs containing the life data (automatic interval shift on the specified time) or historical one are supported. XY graphs are supported too.
Implemented flows (see the chapter Object configuration dialog box):
- Line - straight and smooth link
- Marker - only some types are functional
- Bar graph (2D and 3D) - only the function "Last value" is supported
A transparency of flows is supported.
Interval and values
Both, a time stepping (on whole interval) and explicit defining a time interval by user are allowed in graph. When the interval changes the new data will load. Zoom on X and Y axis works.
Graph table and flow setting
The Y-axis, belonging to specific flow, can be shown in graph table.
Clicking on some flow by right mouse button in the graph table, the popup menu with the item Display table displays. It opens the dialog window displaying the time flow in the text / numerical form.
Sets which way the information will be displayed after clicking on some graphic object in the picture.
Graph in single dialog window
The graph can be opened in single dialog window by clicking on the graphic object which must be connected to control.
