Scripting Project Specified by Tag Provider
Have an option when creating or editing a realtime tag provider to specify a Scripting Project (like the gateway scripting project setting under Config > Gateway Settings) so that each tag provider can have a scripting project to call from for tag event scripts.
Partial gateway backup and restore
Ability to Backup/Restore Tag providers, user sources, database connections, devices, etc.
Perspective - Drawing Tools
Add basic drawing tools to Perspective (lines, circles, squares, etc.). If feasible, it would be fantastic to be able to group as well.
Add tooltip text property to Perspective objects
Perspective buttons and other objects should have a tooltip property to display help text when user hovers mouse over object.
Tags Cross Reference
It would be nice to have some sort of report that shows where all the tags are being used
Perspective Table - Expand Subview function
It would be a good to have possibility that clicking anywhere on a row will open the subview to that row. For most of the use cases it would be best to open subview by clicking the row no matter where to click because it is hard to hit that tiny triangle https://forum.inductiveautomation.com/t/perspective-table-expand-subview-function/34457
Take screenshot of active page in perspective
It will be essential to have a system function to take screenshot of active page in perspective runtime and return it as bytes array.
Add X,Y coordinates to Perspective Touch events
Without any way to get coordinates from touch events, it's impossible to make any custom components which rely on X,Y coordinates from events (e.g., a "Confirm" slider or a signature box) to work on mobile devices within Perspective. Since touch events support multiple fingers at once, it might be necessary to have a list of coordinates, or at least the first finger's coordinates should be given.
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
New Data Types: Color and Font
Add new data types of color and font. For example, we would be able to create a memory tag of type 'Color' or and type 'Font' and then link all fonts and colors back to this memory tag, hence making it easy to change the style of our projects quickly and with ease.
