External Button Control Issues with State Parameters

ksilovich 7 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 7 years ago 1

I'm trying to use external button controls to control a state parameter.  I can navigate to it and open it, but I am unable to scroll the list with the Up and Down buttons, which is what I need to be able to do.

Also is there a way to use the Escape control to back out of the selection, and then when nothing is selected, it can close the page.  I'm unable to get something like that to work.

I saw nobody responded to this relatively old post. 

For the question of the state picker navigation, I first thought that only the encoder input would work for moving upd and down in the state picker list, but when I try it this also works with up/down buttons.

For the question about closing the page with the same input that is also used as the escape button, there is nofunction that does exactly this. You cannot connect your input directly to the display page hide, this will always close the page.

And there is no SIC to tell if there is an active selection on the page.
