With the current zenon version, we continued to make working with scripts easier and more efficient. The first change you might notice regards the script-functions “Script: execute” and “Script: select online”. The previous dialog was replaced by a new selection dialog – which should be more familiar to you as it is used commonly throughout zenon. It offers you all the functionalities to search for a script, see what is inside the script, modify the script and even create a new script on the fly. This already saves a lot of time during engineering but as you know, there is always one more thing …
Up until zenon 7.11 working with scripts was done the long way around: You had to go to the Scripts-node of the project, create a new script and configure it, switch to the Functions-node, create a “Script: Execute”-function; find your script again, etc. Then finally link the new function to e.g. a button to actually use it in the Runtime.
7.20 makes your life a lot easier now: On all places in zenon, where you can link a function (except at a script of course), you now have the possibility to directly select a script instead of searching the “Script: execute” function. The enhanced function selection dialog offers you the additional editing possibilities of our new script selection dialog. But it gets even better: instead of having to do the legwork and searching a matching “Script: execute” function (or create a new one) this is automatically done for you in the background.
Linking multiple functions at e.g. a button just got way easier.
