Part number:

Instructions:
The system keyboard can be simulated using the SimulateSystemKey function from WinCC flexible 2005. The function is particularly useful if the operator panel does not possess a separate number block or if, for example, you use an OP177B with a touch/button combination.

By "simulating" the system keyboard, the operator, on the OP 177B for example, does not necessarily have to use the touch screen (if his hands are dirty) to set or enter values on the panel.

In this example, the "number block" was configured to the following function keys in the "Template" screen on an OP 177B (see Fig. 01).


Fig. 01

In the relevant screens you can then choose whether to use the keys, which have been configured in the "Template" screen", "locally" ("Use global assignment").

No. Procedure
1

Click the function key to which you wish to assign the "SimulateSystemKey" function and open the key properties.

2

You can find the "SimulateSystemKey" function in the "Keyboard" system function.

3 The system key which is being simulated can be selected under the "system key" parameter.

4 Runtime control:
With reference to the attached sample program, you can use the "TAB button" (K2) to switch to the individual "I/O fields".
Click "Enter" (K10) to apply the values which have been input.

All the available "functions" are listed in the file below.
