11.1.8         <CLOSEDSP>

Description:   Closes Display Group or ViewDAQ specified in the argument. Closes the Parent Display Group named and all Dependants. Will close ALL Parent Display Groups with that name, if multiple Parent Display Groups are opened.


Syntax:         <CLOSEDSP>DisplayGroupName



Arguments:    Display Group Name   (no file extension)
ViewDAQ Name




Examples:      close the default Display Group named main

Close the current display group


<CLOSEDSP>DSPGroup will close the named Parent Display Group.  If there are multiple display groups opened that have the same name, all display groups with that name will close.  All Dependants of the name "Parent" Display Group will close. 

<CLOSEDSP>Will not close similarly named "Dependants" of a differently named parent. For example, if a parent named MAIN opens a child dependant named TEST, <CLOSEDSP>TEST will not close TEST.

The <CLOSEDSP> pushbutton can be inside or outside the display group to be closed.  The intent is to close a specific Group and leave other 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.

The pushbutton keymacro <CLOSEDSP> is for ViewDAQ and VIEW (Web browser clients).

The display group name does not have a file extension when used in a Pushbutton Keymacro or Keymacro file. 

Display Groups and ViewDAQs are named using ViewDAQ Definition (See 15.13.2 ViewDAQ Definition).  


The Display groups also can be found in the drive:\WebAccess\Node\ProjectName subdirectory with the *.DSP file extension. Note - The Keymacro does NOT use file extensions.

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. See 15. Display Groups & ViewDAQ for more information.
