Write status

Progress bar, indicating the writing of the recipe.

info Info

All information here is also valid for the Recipegroup Manager.

If the control element is wider than high, the progress bar runs from left to right in the Runtime. If the control element is higher, it runs from bottom to top.

Usually the control element is invisible. As soon as a recipe is executed with an MDI function, the control element becomes visible and disappears again after writing the recipe.

Depending on the configuration of the recipe the behavior of the control element is different.

Synchronous writing:

The progress bar proceeds, when a writing confirmation for a recipe variable is received by the recipe module, no matter if it is positive or negative. The confirmation is based on the response of a PLC after the writing instruction from the driver.

info Info

If you want to react on negative writing confirmations, you can do this with Raction matrices.

info Info

When recipes are deleted, saved, changed or duplicated, the logged in user has to fulfil the authorization requirements that have been set in the authorization group section of the recipe. If the user does not fulfill the authorization requirements, the function is not executed.
Changes that have been done successfully can be logged in the Chronologic Event List.
This is the case for Standard Recipes as well as for the Recipegroup Manager.
