Create or Modify a Block Detail Display

A Block Detail Display is created and edited like any other graphic using DRAW

There are two  tricks to creating a Block Detail Display

3.      The parameter name is used  for animation (not the full BlockName:Parameter).

4.      The Block Detail Name must match the Block Type Name with the .BD1 extension .

For example, if a PID Block type has parameters MEAS, SETP, OUT and AM, then when building a PID.BD1 block detail, animation is connected to MEAS for measurement, and SETP for setpoint and AM for Auto Manual.

If TIC101 is a PID block, during run-time, WebAccess inserts the block name in front of the parameter (with a colon) to create TIC101:MEAS

There can be multiple pages assigned to a block detail display, numbered *.BD1, *.BD2, *.BD3  etc.  For example, a multiple page for a VAV Block would have VAV.BD1, VAV.BD2 and VAV.BD3. For More information about Blocks, see Blocks, section 5.

The file extension for source (DRAW) files are: *.DRW or *.DXX (default)
The file extension for runtime (VIEW) files are: *.BDX
(where x is an integer starting with 1).

The first Block Detail must be named with the BD1 extension.

Multi-Page Block Detail

A multi-paged Block Detail is interconnected using the Up Link and Down Link in Set Graph Parameters.

Pushbuttons to navigate between the pages of a Multi-page Block Detail should use the <P_UP> and <P_DN> keymacros.

The PgUP and PgDn keys on the keyboard can also be used with the Up Link and Down Link to navigate between multiple-page Block Detail.
