    Default Using a button inside a symbol?

    Hi,

    I'm pretty new to Zenon, but I think what I'm trying to do is relatively simple...

    I have a button inside a symbol (as well as a few indicators). I need to have a few hundred instances of this symbol on my screen.

    When pushing the button inside the symbol, it should run a function that opens a sub-screen.

    I have the button linked up to open the screen like usual, but once I instantiate the symbol on a screen, I no longer am able to click the button.

    The screen that contains the symbols will let me treat the entire symbol as a button of sorts, but that is not what I want... I want to be able to run the function that the symbol has set up.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks.

    Oh, looks like I figured out what was going on. I actually had the "Function / Variable / Function" already as a released property and did not realize it.

    All is well! Thanks.
