Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Page Parameters > [Page]Wait For Valid Data


In previous versions of CitectSCADA, the animation system waited for valid data from all subscriptions before drawing the page. If the data took longer than a defined time to arrive, then the page was drawn with “#COM” in place of the missing data items. Release v7.20 allows you to animate pages immediately, using any available cached values/qualities, and using 0 values (with “bad” quality status and “waiting for initial data” sub-status) for any data items that are not immediately available. As subscription notifications are received, the updated values are used.

Allowable Values:

0 - The Control Client will animate pages immediately, using the available values.

1 - The Control Client will attempt to wait for valid data before animating pages (previous functionality).

Default Value: 1
