The object represents an application window with a panel, where it is possible to visualize the data of the PROMOTIC system. The content itself of the graphic panel is created by means of the graphics editor
from Pmg objects
that can bind to the application data by data bindings
In the PmaPanel
object, multiple PmaPanel
can be planted (it is relevant if these additional objects are acting as auxiliary windows opened only from the window of this object).
This object can be created in objects: PmaRoot, PmaFolder, PmaPrototype, PmaPanel. Multiple objects of this type can be created in such objects.
object is suitable for creating windows, with content that is periodicaly updated (for example displaying current data). For windows containing large ammounts of figures without the need of quick updating (e.g. daily reporting ..) the PmaReport
object can be used. Some simpler window can be created by using the special methods, see Pm visualization methods
object can also automatically generate
its graphic data into dynamic HTML pages
and offer these pages to Web clients - see chapter Web panels
. Offering Web pages can be enabled on the "PmaPanel > Web server
The client requiring data from this Web component is of the PmWebClient type from the license point of view.
The panel window can be displayed in the workspace (in the PmaWorkspace
object), opened in independent window, it can also act as modal window
, or it can be displayed in Pmg
object (in the PmgFrame
object) in another panel.
The window is by default opened by the OpenView method (see also Object viewer open). This method can be called for example in the panel button and it is functional for both local and Web applications (i.e. when the method is called for example in the Web panel button).
object exists constantly, while the panel window (with graphic content) in local application may or may not be open (exist).
If the "Enable multiple opening of local panel" configurator is checked, then even multiple panel windows of the same PmaPanel object may be open simultaneously.
If the "Level of integration of panel viewer and the local application
" configurator is set to client - LIMITED access from scripts to the PmaPanel object and Pm object
(recommended setting), then the panel window itself is isolated from the rest of the application
. It is not possible to access the window from application by script directly and vice versa. All changes and actions in the open panel window must be executed by active panel graphic (Pmg objects
) that can use the means for communication with the application itself (data bindings, panel/global methods). This mode allows opening panel window in the Web browser on another computer and also multiple panel windows of the same PmaPanel
object simultaneously in local app.
