'Pointers' group is incorrectly listed in OptoScript action commands


Applies To:

FACTORYFLOOR - OptoControl

Versions Affected:

Problem was discovered in version: R4.1a


Symptoms:

Pointers are incorrectly displayed as an instruction group from the Insert Action Command menu option in an OptoScript block.

[image1]

Pointer commands (Clear Pointer, Clear Pointer Table Element, Move from Pointer Table Element, Move to Pointer, and Move to Pointer Table Element) have direct OptoScript equivalents.

For example, Move To Pointer is equivalent to:

IO_Pointer = &Pump_valve;

Use '&' to get the address of Pump_valve and use '=' to assign the address to pointer IO_Pointer.


Workaround:

Type in the OptoScript equivalent for the pointer command in the OptoScript block, or create the instruction in an action block instead.

For example, Move To Pointer is equivalent to:

IO_Pointer = &Pump_valve; /* Use '&' to get the address of Pump_valve, and use '=' to assign the address to pointer IO_Pointer.


Resolution:

Opto 22 is aware of this issue.
