Multiple language properties and Show Value and unit in Value controls

Johan Palm 2 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 3


The application has two languages; English (UK) and English (US).

A math channel's unit is set up with multiple language properties; m (meter) for English (UK) and inch for English (US).

A value control is used to display the value and unit of the math channel.

The problem is that the displayed unit does not immediately change from m to inch when I change the language from English (UK) to English (US); I need to restart the simulation for the change to take effect.

Is this intentional?

Tested with IQANdesign and IQANsimulate 6.08.


Checked and confirmed that this happens from version 6.05, as an unwanted side-effect of the faster display page navigation.

Will be fixed, but the workaround for now is to restart after changing language if units are translated.
