There are a number of methods to create or edit parameter values within CitectSCADA:
Used to create or change values in the project database.
Used to set up both necessary and commonly
citect.ini parameters on each
machine. This Wizard steps user through a series of pages
collecting information used to set parameter values.
Used to create or modify parameters in the
citect.ini file. This tool provides
users with a quick and convenient mechanism to set the value of a
specific parameter by combining a graphical interface with a
context-sensitive help reference.
A text editor can be used to modify the
citect.ini file, although because
of the risk involved where system configuration contains an error,
this is not the recommended approach.
If you set (or change) parameters in the
citect.ini file, you need to
restart CitectSCADA before the new parameter
settings are used. There are a few exceptions to this rule where
citect.ini parameters are read at
regular intervals and can be changed during runtime. Where this is
the case, the parameter is documented accordingly.
