Simplify system.db.runNamedQuery Gateway/Project Scope
system.db.runNamedQuery is used in two different scenarios that use two different parameter settings: gateway and project. As I do have several scripts running on gateway scope and project scope, I always have to switch between ('project', 'NamedQueryPath', 'params') and ('NamedQueryPath', 'params') because they are incompatible. PLEASE make the 'project' parameter optional in the project scope.. or better: enable cross reverence to other projects!
Improve Active Directory Integration
A problem we're seeing with Ignition's AD authentication is an inability for a user to see when their password is expiring and they're unable to change their password should it expire! This is a big problem where users typically only use a HMI and are not required to use a PC for any other duties. Users could be left in a position where they can't login when there is no support on site to advise why they can't login! Most 21 CFR 11/Annex 11 compliant software packages we use allow these features,.
Intelligently Rename Tags
One of the biggest problems I've had in Ignition is the lack of ability to rename tags, popups, templates and the like because all links to them are broken. Could a smart rename feature be created that would automatically change all links to a tag when it is renamed, or at least point to all the locations it is used so the user could easily change them? Thank you
CSS Animated Icons
It would be very useful to have support for animated icons, or to put some kind of animation into perspective. It could definitely make perspective applications look more professional. https://material.io/design/iconography/animated-icons.html#theming
Perspective - Easy Chart
Create an "Easy Chart" equivalent for Perspective. Features I'm missing now include: "drag & drop" of tags to the chart, easy rescaling of time, printing, etc.
Keep a User Logged in on Perspective App
Right now, every time the Ignition Perspective app is closed and re-opened, you're required to re-enter credentials. This is cumbersome for people who are looking at the app a lot. We'd like to have it work like other apps (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), where you login once, and it doesn't require you to re-login every time the app is opened. Alternatively, if there was a way to have the app "remember" your user name and password so you could just login quickly, that would work.
script editor improvments
I spend lots of time in script editor... 7.7 editor include very cool new features, but still need a few add ! color marks for todo like in eclipse coor marks for found occurence of a find comment right click on function list to copy full function path auto comment, uncomment lines of code autocompletion for all packages ctrl mousewheel to increase text font size
Easy Chart Calculated Pens Driving Pen
It would be nice if we could use the current calculated pens to drive other calculated pens. Currently you can only drive a calculated pen with a database or tag history pen.
