    Default Problems in new version zenon Logic

    Hello colleagues

    I am using v7.00 build5 now and found some problems in zenon Logic.
    I set Externally visible property for variables that use these variables in zenon Logic. But if I have changed variable name in zenon in Logic the name of variable don't change until I uncheck and check again Externally visible property.

    Another problem.
    It's not possible edit variables as text in zenon Logic. I always got error, look at the attachment file.
    If you select "as csv format" in this window all data will be lose.

    Hello altera,

    I am using v7.00 build5 now and found some problems in zenon Logic.
    I set Externally visible property for variables that use these variables in zenon Logic. But if I have changed variable name in zenon in Logic the name of variable don't change until I uncheck and check again Externally visible property.
    I couldn't reproduce this. What I did successfully was:

    1. Created a zenon variable;
    2. Created a zenon Logic project (stratonNG driver);
    3. Set Externally visible and confirmed in zenon Logic workbench;
    4. Changed the name in zenon editor (workspace) and confirmed in zenon Logic workbench.

    Was this your try?

    It's not possible edit variables as text in zenon Logic. I always got error, look at the attachment file. If you select "as csv format" in this window all data will be lose.
    I am a bit confused, because in the picture is shown the IEC text editor, but are you sure that you closed all the comments fields (*...*)?

    Regarding "all data will be lose", which is a different problem of the comment fields:

    To avoid this you can try to:

    1. Cut the whole variables text content including VAR... END_VAR;
    2. Save variable's empty file;
    3. Edit variables as Text again;
    4. Paste the content and edit (i.e. add, remove, etc.) variables.

    Please let me know if now you can edit variables.

    Please make sure you have always your project safeguarded (backup).

    Wish you good luck!

    Best regards,
    David Cerdeira

    Hello david.cerdeira
    1. I tried in empty project and realy didn't have problem with rename variables.
    But in my project these problem is present.
    2. I will test it. These problem present only if I have zenon variables in list.

    2. Ok Please let me know if it helped you.

    Best regards,

    Hi Altera,

    You should avoid editing variables as text when you use variables that are set "externally visible". Basically thesse variables exist in the zenon logic, but cannot be altered as they do not have the common database shared through e.g. the STRATONNG driver.

    Your first issue could also be caused by this. Were the variables you try to change initially e.g. UINT and were then changed to string?

    Best regards
    Mark
