Real-Time Viewer (20)

From the Real-time viewer, set up views in a layout that you would like other users to use as default workspace. Then from the real-time “File” menu option, click on “Create Default Views.”

You can create a Realtime viewer Tabular view. In the Windows menu item, click on the Custom Views and the Object List items. This will show the Custom View tree and the Object List tree. In the Object List tree, browse to the points that you are interested in viewing and select them. Once selected, right-click on the and choose New Custom View. The next dialog will allow you to rename the view if desired. When you click OK on the dialog a new Custom View will be created, and the points can be viewed

From the HMI Builder, go to the Library tab and select Advance Shapes and select a real-time table.
From right-click menu options, select Custom properties to import the list of tags from a CSV file.
There is a large amount of customization available for this table that you can set. Please see “Sinolta Tutorials – HMI Advanced Features” and “Sinolta Tutorials – HMI Scripting” projects for comprehensive examples on how to use this table.

HMI Dynamic subscription is specifically designed to do this.
Checkout the Sinolta Advanced sample projects. They demonstrate how to use Dynamic substitution along with Classes

Viewing HMI screens is not included in the Gateway license. Use Tabular views to view and control points from the Real-time viewer.

From the Tools pulldown menu, select “Viewers Properties.” You can change various properties including the font size from this dialog.

From the Windows Pulldown menu, select “Custom Views.
Right-click on the first line of the Tree view and select Add a View and then select HMI view. From the dialog, click on the button with 3 dots “…” to choose the desired HMI screen.
You can use the same name or type in a new name for your custom view.
Double click and drag this view to one of the docking hotspots.

Express views run from a single predefined file. They don’t check against the server for any updates. They also can be configured to bypass the username and password dialog box and use a preconfigured credential.

There are two options for this:
Opton#1: user IP address, followed by the port number. This is the IP address that Sinlolta Watchdog service is configured to listen to. Your Project has a secondary port that all viewers will use to connect to the project. So you need to ensure two ports are open between your client and server. By default, ports 49300 and 1234 are open on your computer firewall.
Option#2: use HTTP/HTTPS. Sinolta runs on Windows, and all windows computers are equipped with built-in IIS web services. On the server-side, you just need to configure the IIS server to connect to the locally installed Sinolta web services. On the client-side, you will need to enter the HTTP address of your IIS server.
The Sinolta web services are configured to use port 49300 to connect to the local Sinolta Watchdog service. The port number and IP address for the server is stored in a CSV file under C:\Program Data\Sinolta folder.

The update interval is a configurable parameter in Real-time viewer to a maximum of 1 second for TCP/IP and 5 seconds for HTTP/HTTPS.

Each project configuration is validated and stored for a particular version. Simply open the Database builder and select “Upgrade projects,” browse through to your project and click on upgrade.
The upgrade process does not make any changes to our older version. It copies the older version and creates a new copy for the latest version. After the upgrade process is completed, your computer has the configurations for both versions. In a situation that you will need to revert back to the old version, you will find the old project configuration version sitting untouched and ready to run.

Enter all visible fields such as HMI captions, Tag descriptions, units, alarm messages, etc. in the desired language.
From the database builder, open the Project Object wizard and set both Primary and Auxiliary languages to the desired language.
During runtime, open the Real-time viewer, and select Options from the Tools pulldown menu to select your language. Each user needs to do this step only once and the setting will be remembered.

Sinolta supports English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
If you require another language, Sinolta has the provisions to support other languages as well.

Sinolta allows one user to connect to Sinolta in one language while a second user connects to Sinolta in another language.

To set up a Dual language system, system integrators must set up the primary and auxiliary languages in the Project object wizard and populate all Auxiliary fields with the translation of the content of their corresponding main fields.

The real-time viewer only lists projects that recognize the entered username and password. Projects with different usernames and passwords will be invisible to users with wrong or different credentials.
Re-enter a username and password that exists in your target project and you will see your project on the list. Note that the user name and password are both case sensitive.

If your HMI screen is trying to subscribe to a tag that does not exist on the server, this red box shows up. This issue typically occurs when an HMI screen is reused from other projects or tags are mistyped.
Move your mouse over the red box and note the tags listed in the window. Try to find these tags in your HMI screen and correct the tag names or add the missing tags to the server.
Please also note that while the Real-time viewer is running, click on Ctrl-F3 to see a window with a list of all tags that the current screen is using. Any tag that cannot be subscribed is highlighted in red.

In HMI Screen open animation, set up the screen to open as dockable floating windows. During the run time, these windows open as floating windows which can be dragged and dropped on docking hotspots.

From the Real-time viewer’s “File” pulldown menu options, click on “Export” to select and export views that you would like to share. O
Other users can import this exported file and add your views to their Real-time viewer.
Please note that other users should have access to the same HMI screens that you have access, and they can use the Custom Views to add an HMI screen. Sharing views is more applicable to Tabular and prebuilt views that have a high degree of customization.
