HotKeys....
« on: July 24, 2007, 06:42:53 PM »
      I'm trying,(most of today) but I'm getting nowhere fast it seems...information overload I guess....I need to assign a HotKey (the character H, would be my # choice) to the Ref All Home command...can anybody please give me a detailed account of how to go about this?....ultimately, I'll map that character to my IPAC inputs & momentarily close the switch, so to speak, with a relay output from the PLC.....I'd really appreciate any info & thnks much in advance...George P.

Hey George,
    You need to open the screen set you are using and modify the button in Screen 4. Screen 4 is a program to modify, build screens with. It can be downloaded at...
http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/artsoft/downloads/downloads.htm                       screen designer, screen 4. It might be a good idea to open your default screen and save as something else and modify the one you save so you will always have the default as a refrence. I have sent you a personal message.

There may be better ways to do it but this is what I would do.  (as I don't know better :))

Open your screenset in Screen4.  Select the "Ref All" button.  Uncheck  "Use Hot Key" Then recheck it.

When you do that it will ask you to "Type Any Hot Key Now"  Then press your "H" key.  Which incidentally is "72" 

Save and close.  That should do the trick.  :)

Just be aware that Screen4 is a little unstable and will crash for me sometimes when doing this.  Just try again. ;)

EDIT:  Brett beat me to it. I'm a two finger typist.  :D
