Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Trend Parameters > [Trend]GapFillTime


Determines how CitectSCADA processes missing trend samples (i.e. gaps in the trend file and graph). Any gaps equal to or shorter than the time you enter here will be filled with values calculated by CitectSCADA. If you enter 0, no gaps will be filled - the gaps will actually appear on your trend graphs.

Note: To use samples (instead of time) to determine which gaps will be filled, set [Trend]GapFillSamples to a value greater than or equal to 0, [Trend]GapFillTime will then be ignored.

The method used to fill the gap is specified by the [Trend]GapFillMode parameter.

To fill gaps left by missing trend samples on the trend graph only (and not in the trend's file), use TrnSetDisplayMode() instead of this parameter.

Allowable Values: 0 to 60000 (milliseconds)

Default Value: 10000
