What are preconfigurations
The preconfigurations represents various application parts saved in XML
format files. For example all graphic items used in graphic panels are preconfigured objects. Also some PROMOTIC objects are preconfigured and there are also various other independent preconfigurations.
The preconfigurations are used for quick for quick and efficient creation of application components (objects, object groups), that have some preconfigurated functionality (time schedules, communication, user management,...). Using the preconfigurations allows to create applications much faster than using the basic objects.
If the preconfiguration is to be used in an application, then a selection window is opened. In this window, all available options are offered. The options are offered in both graphic and text form, if the preconfiguration has a graphic representation. Only text form is offered if no graphic representation is available.
Window with preconfiguration list:
- New application
: Preconfiguration is activated when creating a new application
After selecting the desired preconfiguration, another window can be activated in order to use the configurators for parametrizing the current preconfiguration.
