  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. "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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. system.gui/system.nav functions should accept a Component object

    When using custom functions or extension functions, there is no `event` object, only `self`.

    This makes it very difficult to use the functions in system.gui/system.nav, as they all expect a `java.util.Event` object. I have looked into this and it seems that they only use the Event object to get a reference to the source component.

    These functions should be changed to accept a `java.awt.Component` as well. This would allow us to use these functions within custom/extension functions, e.g. `system.gui.getParentWindow(self)`.

  12. Get Active Schedules function

    Currently, you can use system.user.isUserScheduled to find currently scheduled users. I would find it incredibly helpful if there was a function to return all of the active schedules given a date, regardless of user, and/or another function to give a boolean given a schedule name and date.

  13. Improved search function

    Would like see the find/replace function improved to allow the following:

    - When clicking on a result in the search window, the actual location of the searched text should be opened (down to the script or expression) not just the instance that contains it. Currently, it just opens the tag editor for the instance which for us contains 50-100 tags, each having their own associated actions using expressions or scripts. It is an absolute nightmare to find the actual source if one is not already familiar with the tags and expressions used.

    - Ability copy text from the current or…

  15. Add a way to distinguish how a component is being edited

    Add a way to distinguish when a component is being edited by (1) a user or (2) programmatically or (3) because of a binding.

  16. Add a new boolean Window property called "FullyLoaded"

    Add a new boolean Window property called something like "FullyLoaded" which will be set to True after all the components have been initialized. This should happen after any Text or Value properties have changed for any component.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Supress zero from showing on report

    I could not find a Number Format on the Properties tab when selecting a numeric field in the report designer which allows me to suppress printing a zero. I am building reports where a 1 at the detail level (every minute) means there was an incident and suppressing zeros would make the 1's stand out a lot easier.

  20. Retain column contents in Report designer when checking unchecking Row options

    In the report designer "Design" tab, if the Row options Retain column contents in Report designer when checking unchecking Row options Header, Details, Summary are unchecked then rechecked, all contents in column cells are lost. It would be nice to retain that information when the options are unchecked so a summary version of the report can be viewed without losing all the work building the report. Thanks.
