Introducing CSV_Include

The CSV_Include Project is a preconfigured project that includes a set of templates and pages styled for the Windows XP environment. It will help you reduce the time necessary to configure a new project.

When a new CitectSCADA project is created, the CSV_Include project is automatically incorporated as an included project. This means the project's templates and associated content are available for implementation when creating your graphics pages in Graphics Builder.

As well as including a standard graphics page template for creating plant mimics, the project also includes predefined trend and alarm display pages, an administration tools page, a file page for displaying text and Rich Text Format files, and a selection of popup windows. They have identical navigation and alarm menus for consistent "look and feel" across an entire project. The project even supports multimonitor displays, allowing you to simultaneously display several graphics pages across several computer screens.

Note: Do not modify the CSV_Include project for use as a runtime project. It will not compile successfully, and be set aside for use as a template for new projects. CitectSCADA upgrades install a new version of the CSV_Include project, so you will lose changes you make to the project when this happens.
