As of ToolScope Connector Version 20150220, you can integrate the Siemens header in ToolScope Connector and change the variables of the ToolScope Connector image.

To have the Siemens header displayed in the ToolScope Connector, the ToolScope Connector entry in the systemconfiguration.ini file must be changed. After "dialog:=TSVNCCdialog", you must add "   , panel:=SlHdStdHeaderPanel". Example:

AREA0501= name:=ToolScope, dialog:=TSVNCCdialog, panel:=SlHdStdHeaderPanel

The header will now cover parts of the ToolScope Connector area. It is therefore necessary to adjust the display size of the ToolScope Connector.

 

In ToolScope_Connector.ini, change the values DEFINED_X, DEFINED_Y, DEFINED_WIDTH and DEFINED_HEIGHT so that the ToolScope and the header do not overlap. The values are dependent on the resolution. If the machine manufacturer has not modified the display layout, the following values apply:

 

Resolution

DEFINED_X

DEFINED_Y

DEFINED_WIDTH

DEFINED_HEIGHT

640 x 480

0

32

640

448

800 x 600

0

40

800

560

1024 x 768

0

51

1024

717

1280 x 1024

0

1280

Example: You wish to adjust the ToolScope Connector to the Siemens header. The system has a resolution of 800 x 600. In this case, the four values in ToolScope_Connector.ini will read as follows:

DEFINED_X=0
DEFINED_Y=40
DEFINED_WIDTH=800
DEFINED_HEIGHT=560

In the ToolScope, under "Service" / "Settings" / "Display" / "Resolution", activate the option "Apply from the control panel". This ensures that ToolScope Connector reports your planned resolution to the ToolScope and the ToolScope automatically matches it.

The control system and the ToolScope must then be restarted.

Please note that the softkey bars on the sides of the ToolScope are not to scale with the softkey bars on the sides of the control system.
