This seems quite inflexible. It would be great if a lot more of the SVG properties would be made editable to avoid overcomplicating the SVG design process. What would also be great would be able to set the stroke to non-scaling so that whatever size it is, it will always be the width that you set. Otherwise, ...

By magic colour, I mean similar to "magic numbers" in code. In computer programming, a magic number is any of the following: A unique value with unexplained meaning or multiple occurrences which could (preferably) be replaced with a named constant A distinctive unique value that is unlikely ...

Hi @Hobbs , are you able to define standard colours and then use these instead of magic colours? ------------------------------ Nickm ------------------------------

One important thing to note here is that (I believe), regarding steps 1 and 10, you're not able to supply a literal string value into the global parameter for the display path. This must come from a string tag, as Fuzzy has demonstrated. ------------------------------ Nickm -------------- ...

You should be adding a Goto Display button into the Global Object for your engine itself as per step 3 of Fuzzy's reply. The Parameter List should be set to: `(#1)` Then on the instances of the global object that you've dragged onto your page, you can set the global object parameter values. This ...

On the contrary, I don't recommend using parameter files, since you will need to create one for every device. The whole point in using template objects is to get away from having to manually create something for each template, other than the tags themselves. It's been a while since I've used FTV, ...

Really appreciate the detailed response! I'm not sure how to quote on this forum.. so forgive the dodgy quotes "However, it is approaching the same caliber as Ignition" This is the platform I come from and have been using for the last 7 years, so that's where most of my questions ...

Thanks for the info. The issue however that I can see with tagging is that this is not enforced to be added when creating a topic, so searching for specific-product-related topics is therefore difficult and could result in a large number of unrelated results. ------------------------------ Nickm ...

I'm trying to animate the stroke and fill colours independently in an advanced SVG component, but I can only seem to set both to a single colour. Is it possible to bind to these independently? Also, is it possible to configure other SVG properties like: stroke-width stroke-dasharray ...

Is there a demo project that is available to download that showcases the features of Optix? and more importantly, how to actually do common things in the software? Like (may be different terminology in Optix): creating "tag UDTs" and instances of them creating and using graphic "templates" ...

I'm trying to find how I can show topics only for a particular product, but there only seems to be an "Advanced Software" forum that has topics for every single RA product in existence, and when creating a topic itself, there doesn't appear to be a way to denote what product your topic applies to 🤔 ...

Thanks Eileen, I did actually receive an email which I appeared in my spam folder. However, I didn't see anything in the FAQ about seeing notifications within the webpage itself. Is there somewhere in this forum that shows reply notifications? ------------------------------ Nickm -------------- ...

I've only just joined and I posted in the Advanced Software community/forum and got a reply last night, but I didn't see the reply show up as a notification anywhere. I only stumbled upon it when I revisited my topic. Are reply notifications shown anywhere? And how can I get reply notifications ...

EDIT: moved to Advanced Software community -FL I'm wanting to know if this is possible, and how I would do this with FT products. Text files will be created on a fileshare, and I need to process these text files automatically. Each line in the text file will need to be sent as a string to a PLC ...
