groov View reports "This gadget does not have a properly configured tag" for some OPC UA array tags


Applies To:

  • GROOV-AR1, GROOV-AR1-BASE, GROOV-AR1-SNAP
  • GROOV-AT1, GROOV-AT1-SNAP
  • GROOV-SVR-WIN, GROOV-SVR-WIN-BASE, GROOV-SVR-WIN-SNAP
  • GRV-EPIC-PR1

Versions Affected:

4.2a to current


Symptoms:

If you connect an OPC UA tag that uses an array data type with an unspecified array length to a gadget, groov View may report that the gadget does not have a properly configured tag.

Workaround:

If you can edit the tag before associating it to a gadget, make sure that the tag has a length specified in the OPC UA server. If an array tag without a length has already been associated with a gadget, update the tag's definition:

  1. From Build Mode in groov View, click Configure Devices & Tags.
  2. Select the OPC UA server that has the array tag.
  3. Click Update Static Tags.

Resolution:
