Practical settings for the alarming macro in use with DDC Suite

FAQ #101342

The alarm texts generated by DDC Suite are quit long and are in some cases not complete displayed with the default alarming macro. There's a description in FAQ #100711 how to modify the columns width. This FAQ contains an example which applies well to the screen dimensions of a VGA MB Panel PCD7.D4xxV.

 

Step-by-step example Web Editor 5

  • In the Web-Editor 5 open the page with the alarming macro
  • Double click the alarming macro, so that the window "GROUP" opens
  • Select the tab "Cross Ref". In the cross reference list select entry "STRING "#sp;…."".
    The start position of the individual columns are defined in this string in the order: 
    StateColour, ID, Alarm text, Time on, Time off, ACK/NAK, Counter.
  • Replace the default string by this string: "#sp;120,0,5,71,120,90,95\n" and don't forget to click 'update' to validate the changes.

Step-by-step example Web Editor 8

  • In the Web-Editor 8 open the page with the alarming macro
  • Rightmouse click in the alarming macro, choose "Cross Reference"
  • Choose in the upper part for the "Filter by type" ALL
  • Select in the Cross Ref Table the column with the Type "STRING "#sp;…."".
    The start position of the individual columns are defined in this string in the order: 
    StateColour, ID, Alarm text, Time on, Time off, ACK/NAK, Counter.
  • Replace the default string by this string: "#sp;120,0,5,71,120,90,95\n"
    §Ix101640§
  • The numbers entered stand for the percentage of the total width of the alarm list where the according column starts. So the "ID" column starts at 0% of the whole width of the alarm list, and the "Alarm text" starts at 6% of the whole width fo the list etc.
    The value 120 will disable the according column (in this example the "StateColour" and the "TimeOff").

As result, the alarm list will be drawn like the below attached screenshot:

Remark
Please note that the S-Web Editor 5.14.27 or later is required for this configuration (otherwise the "\n" will not work)
