Issue

Can the red crosses (that indicate that a signal is offline) in Vista or SmartStruxure workstation/webstation be disabled?

Product Line

TAC Vista, SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

SmartStruxure TGML Graphics (Workstation, Webstation)

Vista TGML Graphics (Workstation 5.X, Webstation 5.X)

Cause

When a signal which is bound to an object in a TGML graphic is offline, this is indicated by a red cross when viewing the graphic in Vista or SmartStruxure Workstation or Webstation.

Resolution

This can easily be disabled in TGML by adding a script to the OnSignalChange event:

function signal(evt)
{
  evt.preventDefault();
}

 

Note, this script will only disable the red X when a point is offline. This does not address any issue that might cause points to be offline.
