When a child graphics page is displayed in web client the Close "X" button located in its window title bar is disabled. If I press Alt-Space and try to select "Close", this option is also disabled. This does not happen when running the project through a standard display client.

The web client explicitly sets [Debug]Shutdown = 0 which disables the ability for users to shut down the CitectSCADA system from a graphics page.

The current solution is to implement a button on each popup page which makes a call to the WinFree() cicode function simulating the disabled Close "X" button.

Citect has confirmed this to be a problem in CitectHMI/SCADA version 6. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
