Is it possible to mount the display upside down so the plugs are at the bottom of the unit? It is for a MD4 7" display.
Has there been any thought for creating a block the just decodes the DM1 messages and put them into an array or other object. this could then be used to display the SPN, FMI, and occurrence without having to decode each message and display it. This would be very useful based on the number of DM1 error code that need to be decoded.
There are other software packages that have create block to handle this for both DM1 and DM2 messages. They have incorporated an up/down scroll to scroll thru the faults held in a buffer. You can also clear this buffer but would reload if the engine or other device sends another packet of faults. It also handle all of the status lights that would need to displayed along with any flashing that would be required.
I function expression, we can compare the parameter state or state machine to an integer value. problem with this is that you re-arrange the states or add a state, you have update all the values where ever you created the logic
Would it be possible to use the different parameter states as an enumerated value so that the logic can be:
b) easier to maintain
Showing the pin connections on the module screen in Version 5 is really nice. However, not showing all of the available I/O makes it difficult to see how pins are shared between different channel types. For example, you may not realize that you could simply move a DOUT to a different channel assignment (i.e. DOUT:F rather than DOUT:I) to allow for an additional COUT that shares a pin assignment with DOUT:I (ref XA2 module). Is it possible to have the option to show all the I/O like before, but keep the pin connections displayed?
Adapting the MC4x modules on our first machines now, we had quite a struggle with the various pin characteristics (DIN Pull-up / Down, A15/17 suitable for relays on the MC3, et cetera). Such details can be found in the Specs of course, but it would be quicker & easier if we can see such details in IQAN Design, for example in the bottom-right corner when clicking an in- or output pin.
When adjusting a parameter on the MD4 adjust screen, can the reference channel for the adjust group be displayed? It would also be nice if individual adjust items could have their own reference channels rather than the entire group.
I am doing a bunch with functional groups in the latest project to clean things up a bit, and it is annoying to have to individually name/rename each of the FGIs, especially when I change the name of the source and then "have to" rename it again in every Funtional Group where it shows up.
Maybe have a box to check to override the default name strategy for the times someone might want another name used.

The pages were made by an industrial designer. He worked in Illustrator/Photoshop to make the graphical design elements, and then used them to build the HMI in IQANdesign. He offers his services to IQAN users, we can provide the contact details.
These are the files:
My Documents\IQAN Files\Examples\Fork lift\Fork lift.ida3
My Documents\IQAN Files\Examples\Fork lift\Classic.ids3
My Documents\IQAN Files\Examples\Fork lift\HighTech.ids3
Classic and HighTech use the same application as in Fork lift, but with different look and feel. They are stripped project files, but can be opened in IQANdesign in the same way as a normal ida3 file. Just select the correct file type in the open dialog, or double-click the file in Windows Explorer.
