11.1.7         <CLOSEDEP>

Description:   Close all Dependant Display Groups of the current Display Window opened with ViewDAQ. Will not close the Display Group Window this pushbutton is inside.  User must have password level to close DAQ Windows.


Arguments:    none



Example:       <CLOSEDEP>

<CLOSEDEP>will close all Dependent "Child" windows of the current Display Group  Window. The current Window will remain open.  All Parents will remain open.  The <CLOSEDEP> pushbutton is outside the display group to be closed.  The <CLOSEDEP> pushbutton is inside the Parent, which will remain open. The intent is to close the "Child" Windows from a Parent and leave "unrelated" ViewDAQ windows open. 

The user must have a Security Level greater than or equal to the "Exit Password Level configured for the Display Group. If not, a popup dialog box will opened to prompt the user to login as a new user.

This Keymacro is available on VIEW clients and SCADA nodes running ViewDAQ. 

Dependant Windows are ALWAYS on Top of the Parent.  Consideration must be made for placement of the button, move and resize, since the Dependant Child may cover the parent preventing access to the <CLOSEDEP> pushbutton.

<CLOSEDEP> is a Pushbutton keymacro frequently used in a Parent Display Window to close only the dependant children  (in local ViewDAQ). For example,  assume you are looking for the Key Macro for use inside a Parent Display group to close all Dependent Windows and leave the  parent open. If you have a button inside the child, you should use <ALT-F4> to close only the child (dependent) display group. If you have a button inside the Parent, you should use <CLOSEDEP>childname.

VIEW is the web browser version of the WebAccess client.

ViewDAQ is a non-web browser version of VIEW that runs on a local SCADA node  intended for standalone architecture and control room type users. 

Display Groups allow multiple display windows to be opened with a single mouse click.  Users can save multiple windows, size, position and default display as a display group, then re-open this group from a menu list or pushbutton.  Other features of display groups include hide menu bar, no resize and exit password level to close WebAccess. Display Groups are a Windows management tool.
