6.10.5                     Save Current and Dependant ViewDAQs

Save a Single Display Window and its opened dependant Windows with Save Current and Dependant ViewDAQs. When this display group is opened, all the dependants will open. When the parent is closed, all dependants will close. This includes the parent that is part of the saved display group. Each dependant can be closed individually.

Note - Dependant Windows are those opened using Popup Dependant. These Dependents are always on top of their parent and close when the parent closes

1.      Open the Parent Window. If the parent window already has dependants windows, they will open also.

2.      Open the additional dependant windows you want to add to this group using
File -> Open Display Group -> Popup Dependant Display Group

a.      Or Right Click -> Open Display Group -> Popup Dependent Display Group

Note – if you use Open Display Group, these are considered  “other” display groups and not dependant.

3.      Modify the size, position and displayed graphic in each window.

4.      Optionally, use Style Options and Window Options to hide menu bars, tool bars, etc.

5.      Optionally, use ViewDAQ Options to define exit password level, give new titles and rename the windows.

6.      Login and a user with ViewDAQ Level = 127

 File->Save ViewDAQs -> Save Current and Dependant ViewDAQs
