Firmware dependencies for the "DB Access Library"

FAQ #101372

The System Function (SF library) "DB Access Library" allows e.g. copying texts into text or searching an expression within a text. These features have not been present in the first firmware version, and not all featurs are available on all PCD systems. Therefore please refer to this FAQ for the firmware dependency information.

 

What are the functions of the "DB Access Library"?
The System Function (SF library) "DB Access Library" allows e.g. copying texts into text or searching an expression within a text. The library consists of two parts, where the second part (including e.g. the SearchText function which allows sarching an expressino within a text) is only supported by Saia PCD® COSinus Systems (PCD2.M5, PCD3).
A detailed description of the functions can be found in the context menu of the "Function selector" from the IL Editor from PG5 2.0:
