  1. line wrap table text

    As posted on https://forum.inductiveautomation.com/t/line-wrap-within-a-bound-table/1823, there's no way to have overflow line wrap within a table. Adding '<html>' to the start will put the overflow on a new line, but that line will then not be visible if rowResizeEnabled is set. It would be nice to have overflow make rows larger if needed.

  2. Add additional math functions

    Please add more math functions to the scripting language in Ignition, either as a system.math type addition, or as a separate module. The specific functions I'm personally interested in are mean, mode, median, standard deviation, kurtosis and skewness. Some of these are available in some form, but not all.

    As others are probably interested other math functions, I think the best approach would be to implement something like Apache Math, which has a wide variety of advanced math functions.

  3. IO&G Users: Ignition ROC Driver Suite

    Ignition OPC-UA server needs a Native ROC Protocol Driver for 800, 800L and Floboss 107. This should also support EFM History.

  5. Support equations in EasyChart calculated pens

    Allow EasyChart calculated pens to accept basic equations like:

    historicalPen * 5 / 8 + 32

    This would allow converting a historical pen stored in degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit and other similar units of measure conversions. This in turn allows displaying a trend in different units of measure than it was recorded in rather than recording the same data twice (once in each unit of measure).

    A distant second option would be to allow basing a calculated pen on another calculated pen. This would allow building the conversion in steps with each calculated pen. (Presently, calculated pens cannot be based…

  6. Global Windows

    Same concept as the global template, except that it is global window where all project can reference it and open the window.

  7. Native Client Launcher - Restrict Project View

    Currently it is possible to see a list of projects on any known gateway through the Native Client Launcher. The idea is to make it so that no one can see a list of projects without being authenticated via an Ignition security profile (if desired). Most other forms of client access already prevent this, including the gateway webpage, the designer, and the mobile module. Please upvote for additional security.

  8. New bindable paramters on Report object with ability to set/script in Report Viewer

    I am having to create and keep in sync two versions of each report, one with Header/Details/Summary checked and one with Header/Summary checked so I can get summary and detail versions. It would be nice if these properties of the report table configuration -

    Header
    Detail
    Summary

    were properties that could be bound through the report viewer just like the StartDate and EndDate. Changes to the binding would refresh the report.

    Thanks for considering this idea.

  9. Mobile Module Different Ports for Mobile Module and Gateway

    Separation of mobile client and launch page (https://localhost/main/system/mobile) and the gateway and designer application (https://localhost/main/web/home) on different ports so that remote access can be enabled to the client only and not designer or gateway web page so that firewall rules can be enabled to allow remote access to client only.

  11. Add custom fonts to the designer library

    My client has a fully developed branding scheme, including specific fonts that should be used for all materials associated with the company. I would like to be able to add fonts to be used in the designer for any element which can choose a font.

  13. Full Screen Designer Mode

    It would be really nice to have a Full Screen designer mode where the screen actually goes full screen and hides the menus, panels, etc.
    The property panels could go to Float mode and be movable around the screen. This way you can actually design for the resolution of your clients and see what the actual layout will look like when published and launched.

  14. Save custom colors

    It'd be great to be able to design custom colors and save them with a name so that in the designer when picking a color from the color palette we can just select pre-determined custom colors wherever we are in a project.

  15. "Are you sure you want to delete?" popup should only be used when the deletion can't be undone easily

    It's not useful as a warning if it appears every single time somebody presses the delete key. It quickly becomes muscle memory to treat deletion as a two-key operation: press delete with one finger, then press enter with another.

    Then you try to delete some labels from a template, and the template disappears! It turns out you missed your click and selected the entire template for deletion instead of just the component inside of it. Deleting a template can't be fixed with Ctrl-Z. All the work you've been doing in the template is gone. It's one time that a popup…

  16. Suport of Ignition Edge on Intel Quark x1020 to support Siemens SIMATIC IoT2040

    Suport of Ignition Edge on Intel Quark x1020 to support Siemens SIMATIC IoT2040.

    Currently Igntion edge only works on arm, i propose to support also x86 small systems like Intel Quark x1020 or Intel atom.

  18. In the Designer, warn when the Close Window ("X") or Cancel is clicked in the "Scripting..." to save changes (if changes were made).

    In the Designer, when using the "X" (in the upper-right corner of the window, to close the window) or the "Cancel" button in the "Scripting..." window, please ask/warn the user if they would like to Save the changes that have been made (if any) since the last time the "Apply" button was used.

    It is very frustrating to lose several hours of work writing an event script or binding expression by forgetting to use the OK or Apply buttons and simply closing the window (using the "X").

    Being a long-time user of Windows applications, they all will ask if you…

  19. Allow Project Minimum/Maximum Size to be Modified from a Runtime Client.

    There are a few instances where this would be extremely helpful, esp when projects have both high and low resolution clients. For a 1920 x 1080 project, the minimum size usually needs to be 1920 x 1080 so that all office-clients with less resolution get scroll bars and can see the entire screen. If there are field-clients that are low resolution and only have access to a few screens, then it would be great to modify the minimum size for that particular client since that's the only way to get rid of the scroll bars. Essentially this gives us another…
