Display Groups are a Windows Management feature allowing users to open multiple windows of WebAccess with a single button click.

DSPNEW closes the current ViewDAQ display windows, task or  group and pops up a new display group. A display group consists of multiple ViewDAQ windows (i.e. as if ViewDAQ were started from taskbar menu multiple times). The windows will appear in the size and positioned saved using the Display Group commands in ViewDAQ. Each display group is considered a separate task by the Windows operating system. The default ViewDAQ display group is named "main.dsp".  An incorrect or invalid display group name will result in default display group (main.dsp).

This ACTION command is available to local scripts (i.e. screen scripts) on web browser client VIEW and ViewDAQ running on a SCADA node.   It is not supported for use in Global Scripts.

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.
