WebView Easy Steps

You can use WebView to automatically configure HTML screens from CimView screens. You can actually configure a CimView screen to be an index screen through which users can open other screens. You can make WebView convert all of these screens, so you have a WebView site that emulates a Viewer's CimView interface. You can create a working WebView site by implementing the following easy steps.

Note: Make sure you have administrator privileges.

Once WebView is up and running, you will see how straightforward your planning will be.
