Hide inactive acknowledged (green) Allows to define whether to display inactive confirmed (green) alarms. Inactive confirmed (green) alarms can be divided into two types. New, non-initialized (non-existing so far) alarms and alarms that have been active in the past, but ceased existence.
0 = Show all inactive acknowledged (green) - Inactive confirmed (green) alarms will all be displayed, i.e. the alarms of both types. Both new and expired alarms will be displayed.
1 = Hide all inactive acknowledged (green) - Inactive confirmed (green) alarms will not be displayed. No new and no expired alarms will be displayed.
2 = Hide only new not inited inactive acknowledged (green) - Inactive confirmed (green) alarms of the new non-initialized type (not activated so far) will not be displayed. Inactive confirmed (green) alarms that have been active in the past and are ceased now, will be dispayed. New alarms will not be displayed, ceased alarms will be displayed. See the configurator "PmAlarmEvent > Main > Change inactive confirmed (green) CEASED to NEW non-initialized alarms in [s] (-1=never)".
Configuration file usageSpecifies using the configuration file with saved settings of the state viewer.
Not used - The configuration file with settings is not used any more. When opening the viewer, the static configuration from the PmAlarmEvent object is used.
Read only - The configuration file with settings is used only for reading when opening the viewer. When opening the viewer, at first the static configuration from the PmAlarmEvent object is used supplemented by all saved information from the configuration file. The Save button is not shown in the open viewer.
Read and write - The configuration file with settings is used only for reading when opening the viewer. When opening the viewer, at first the static configuration from the PmAlarmEvent object is used supplemented by all saved information from the configuration file. The Save button is shown in the open viewer that allows to save the current configuration of the viewer to the preset configuration file. This means that reading and eventually saving the configuration is done in the viewer for the certain alarm/event group over the same file. For saving the configuration the access right SaveCfgHistory are needed. If the user hasn't got this right, the operation fails with the error message.
FileName of the configuration file. The file extension is *.ag for alarms and *.eg for events. Caution: The same file cannot be used for storing the configuration of the state viewer and the history viewer. But it is possible to share the configuration file of the state viewer with more groups if they have the same configuration.

It is recommended to use the PROMOTIC path syntax - see PROMOTIC path to files and folders.

Set by default for alarms on #cfg:WndStat.ag and for events on #cfg:WndStat.eg.

Color modeDefines the color usage for selected alarm states and alarm markings indication. The alarm state is indicated by the selected color. The color is used for the text characters or the text background either for the first column or for the whole line. The selected alarm is distinguished by the color from other alarms (cursors). The current preset value is 0.
0 = State: whole row with color background. Selected: first column highlighted with black.
1 = State: whole row with color text. Selected: highlighted whole row.
2 = State: first column with color text. Selected: highlighted whole row.

4 = State: first column with color background. Selected: highlighted whole row.
Colors of alarm statesThe configurators allow to set colors for different alarm states. Caution: The colors are used for distinguishing differnt alarm states and therefore the modifications should be implemented wisely, because the default alarm color settings are used as references by the Promotic documentation, the designers and even the operators.
