The CSV_Include project includes templates for the four following types of trend display:
Note: To implement the Instant Trend feature in one of your own projects, you need to add the CSV_InstantTrend project as an Included project. (See Including a project in the current project.)
The Trend, Double Trend and PopTrend displays allow you to select and display trend tags from your CitectSCADA project on a color-coded linear chart. Being based on information coming from the CitectSCADA Trends Server, these displays are supported by stored historical data that can be recalled if necessary.
The Instant Trend display is unique as it allows
the selection of up to four variable tags for display. This allows
you to visually monitor a tag without having to set it up within
your CitectSCADA project as
a trend tag. You can even load tags directly into the display by
hovering the mouse over a tag value on a graphics page and keying
in a plus sign (see the parameter
There are limitations to this feature, however, as data is only available from the time the display is launched and is lost when the display is closed. The Instant Trend feature has a duration setting that limits the amount of time the display can remain open, you can adjust the default setting for this via the parameter [TrendX]Duration.
