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



Detail information on working with palette Connect object and description of properties is mentioned in chapter Connect object palette for D2000 GrEditor.


The differences in D2000 Thin Client:


RepaintNot implemented.
DynamicsNot implemented.


Object properties palette



Detail information on working with palette Object properties and description of properties is mentioned in chapter Object properties palette for D2000 GrEditor.


The differences in D2000 Thin Client:


Lines


StyleTCL supports only solid line.
PatternThe full pattern is supported.
RoundNot supported.
Line endType 1 is supported.
Line joinType 3 is supported.


Text


EffectNot supported.


BMP


Monochromatic bitmapNot supported.


Table


Object is not supported.


3D


3D colorColor can be set only for 3D button, 3D multiline and 3D radio button.
PatternNot supported.
SizeOnly height of 3D button and 3D radio button can be set.


Effects


Effects are not supported.


Graphic objects



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.


Basic objects


The description of object parameters is mentioned in the individual pages of chapter Drawing graphic objects.


Line
Multiline
3D multiline
Disjointed multiline
Ellipse
Polygon
Circle sector
The events are not implemented (see Connect object palette, tab Script).
3D buttonA text alignment is not implemented in object.
3-point arc
Cube
Table
3D Frame
Ring
Not supported.


Displayers


The description of object parameters is mentioned in the individual pages of chapter Displayers.


Picture displayerDisplayer does not allow the event handler (OnClick, etc.) as it is in D2000 HI.
Graph displayerThe 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 displayerIt 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).
Alarm displayer
Logging displayer Column displayer
Pointer displayer
Trend
XY graph
Objects are not implemented.
ReportObject is not supported.
Progress barPartially limited functionality. Greyed progress bar is not supported.


SWT Shell, JavaSwing


The objects are not supported.


Windows controls


The description of object parameters is mentioned in the individual pages of chapter Windows controls.


Push buttonEvent 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.
Check-button
Radio button
It does not support the bitmaps.
List boxList type - Dropt down combo is not implemented (parameter Type, tab Properties).
Parameter Connected object is not implemented (tab Connect).
Tab controlEvent handler of OnGotFocus, OnLostFocus is not implemented (tab Script).
Group boxGroup 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.


Graphs



Basic parameters


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
  • Fill
  • 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


It is possible to show and hide the graph table. It shows also the flows with the last value. User may switch on / off the flows, set their color, fill, line width and type (straight, smooth).


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.


Dynamic graph


If %ViewTrend function is set in Object connect palette (tab Control), the Dynamic graph is displayed.


Display information


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.
