At the moment it is not possible to have the display for the normal, danger and warning area made in color on a Windows CE-based operator panel.
However you can do this manually by using a graphical representation laid behind an analog display that is switched to transparent.
Insert analog display:
First insert an XGauge Control in your configuration and define the size of the display.
You can define the height and width of the display in the Properties under XGauge Control > Position > Size.
In the Properties of the display under "General" you define the relevant parameters for the SMark Width, Danger, Warning etc.
Under "Labeling" you select the "Display" (Danger Display, Warning Display, Normal Display) that is to be displayed later on the analog display.
||Create screen shot:
Make a "screen shot" of the picture/page with the analog display (e.g. via the key combination Ctrl + Print).
Insert this screen shot in a graphics processing program (e.g. Microsoft Paint).
||Edit screen shot:
From the screen shot you remove all the details such as labels and scales. Below is an example of the original and the edited screen shot.
||Incorporate graphical representation:
- First open the Properties of the analog display.
Under "General > Back Style:" you select the "Transparent" entry.
- Switch to the "Labeling" menu item. There you clear the check marks for the Danger, Warning and Normal displays.
- Insert a new graphical representation. In this case you use the screen shot you have edited as the graphical representation.
- Place the two elements one over the other (analog display and graphical representation). The analog display must be set to "Foreground".
This completes the analog display.
