Graphics pages have the following general properties:
The title to be displayed on the page at runtime. A window title can have a maximum size of 64 characters.
The title can be plain text, Super Genie syntax or both e.g. "Pump ?AREA? status".
Enter a description of the page, and its various functions and so on up to a maximum of 250 characters. The description is designed for comments only and does not affect how your system performs, nor does the description appear during runtime.
The page that will precede the current page in the runtime browse sequence (maximum 64 characters). Choose an existing page from the menu or type in a page name.
This property is optional. If you do not specify a Previous page, the Page Previous command is inoperative while this page is displayed.
The page that will follow the current page in the runtime browse sequence (maximum 64 characters). Choose an existing page from the menu or type in a page name.
This property is optional. If you do not specify a Next page, the Page Next command is inoperative while this page is displayed.
[Security] All areas
Select the check box if you want the page to belong to every area (the page can be seen by any operator with view access to at least one areaA large application can be visualized as a series of discrete sections or areas. Areas can be defined geographically (where parts of the plant are separated by vast distances) or logically (as discrete processes or individual tasks).; see Adding user records).
Enter the area to which this page belongs. Only users with access to this area can view this page. Click the menu to select an area, or type in an area number directly. If you do not specify an area, the page is accessible to every user.
[Page scan time] Default
The Page scan time defines how often this graphics page is updated at runtime. The Page scan time also determines the rate of execution of the While page shown events (i.e. the command(s) which are executed while the page is displayed at runtime).
Select this check box to use the default page scan time (as set using the [Page]ScanTime parameter); otherwise, leave it blank, and enter (or select) another value in the field below. For example, if you enter a page scan time of 200 milliseconds, there will be an attempt to update the page every 200 milliseconds, and any While page shown events are executed every 200 milliseconds.
Note: You can set the default page scan time using the Computer Setup Wizard.
[Logging] Log device
This is the device to which messages are logged for the page's keyboard commands. Click the menu to the right of the field to select a device, or type a device name.
Note: You need to include the MsgLog field in the format of the log device for the message to be sent.
[Cluster context] Inherit from caller
Select this check box to make the current page inherit the default cluster context from the page or cicode task that opened this page (for example using the PageDisplay or WinNewAt Cicode functions). If this is checked you cannot select a specific default cluster. See About cluster context for more information.
[Cluster context] Cluster
Specifies a default cluster context for this page.
