Question: How to create timer?
Timers can come from PLC. But can be created by SCADA itself. Create a tag with driver TIMERFORMAT. If possible use a different virtual port, the system will use a new windows thread.
This tag is in windows double date time format like 1/24/60/60/1000 per milisseconds.
To start timer counting type in a script event (ex: button OnClick):
tagname = 1
tagname = 2
tagname = 0
In reports use cell format hh:nn:ss there.
if you want its possible to use internal script timer in milisseconds like:
timer.reset .... x = timer
timer.test1.reset .... x = timer.test1
