What are the Data Reader Widget Properties
Data Reader Widget
The ‘Data Reader’ widget is designed to integrate with the gaging application on the Revolution. The setup and characteristic names that have been configured in the DataMetrics TranSend application are loaded on to the Revolution device for the gaging application. The Digital Clipboard application can then issue requests to the gaging application to complete the taking of measurements for the requested setup and characteristics.
Upon completion of taking the requested measurements, the measurement value for a single characteristic is returned along with an in spec or out of spec indicator. If a request is made to get readings for all characteristics for a setup then the measurement value returned is empty and the in specification or out of specification indicator is the status for all the characteristics.
The ‘Data Reader’ widget is only valid when being used with the Revolution. For tablets and phones this widget will be disabled.
Data Reader Widget—Properties
The Setup Name property is used to set the name of the DataMetrics TranSend setup that you are going to get a data reading from.
The Characteristic Name property is used to set the name of the DataMetrics TranSend characteristic that belongs to the specified Setup Name that you are going to get a data reading from.
If the Characteristic Name is empty, all characteristics for the specified Setup Name will be collected.
You can change the name of the ‘Data Reader’ widget using a label. It is ‘Data Reader’ by default. On the right panel, go to the label section and you can type the required text that you want. The same name will appear on the workflow.
