Embed code for: HMI Introduction
Select a size
The intention of this document is to quickly review the changes in reference to SmartVu.
I will briefly discuss the changes to specific dialogs and new dialogs to the application.
On Startup, HMI application looks exactly like SmartVu.
1st, Login from the top link.
From this point, you have the option to select a map from the “Start” tab and selecting a Map using File browser, or from the drop down combo box.
Displaying the default map
In order to select your default map upon login, you have two choices, by user or globally “All Users”.
Select “Save Configuration” when selecting the “Map menu” button.
Pick “Default” or “All Users”. The current view will be saved into “Startup_Default.xml” or “Startup_AllUsers.xml” in the Roots, Wmp Folder.
Example: Root of “C:\Program Files (x86)\Quindar\WorldView\Hamilton\”
Will store the file in
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Quindar\WorldView\Hamilton\Standard\Wmp”
Default configuration will display when no users are logged into the system - ne se pojavuva koga nikoj ne e logiran, samo koga ima logiran user.
“All Users” configuration will display when any users logs into the system.
If you change the root folder, you will require to recreate ``Default`` and ``All Users`` configurations.
By selecting the VU button
Then “System Options”
The “Custom Bars” group has been added.
The XML files used are saved in the “Root” folder, “Standard\Toolbars” subdirectory. The system will create the “Toolbars” subdirectory and copy default bars from the “HMI Application directory\Resources” directory which the Install application has installed. The following naming format will match your display resolution. This is in order to take advantage of your display properties, workspace wise.
-Use Custom bar.
“X resolution” ’X’ “Y resolution” ‘bar.xml’
-Use Navigation bar.
Example: 1920X1200NavBar.xml “X resolution” ’X’ “Y resolution” ‘NavBar.xml’
This will add the ability to navigate the maps using a bottom navigation bar.
In order to configure the Navigation bar, you will be required to configure what views to display. Once this option is set, the “VU” button adds the “Edit Navigation Content” entry. Selecting this option displays:
By selecting from the right list, and selecting the “<<” (transfer) button, this will populate the Navigation bar. Note: you can only use the link once in a Navigation bar. You can modify the content being displayed by modifying the text in the Left Top Edit control. This is what will be displayed in the navigation bar. You can modify the Background and Foreground color for each entry.
In order to be able to display from multiple files, you are required to change the current map in order to be able to select the view to add to the navigation bar. Select “Change Map” from this dialog and pick your new map.
Note: changing root folder will make the system edit the Navigation bar for that folder and will force a reference to that folder. You will require to restart your system if you do not want that navigation configuration or select a file from the root folder to have it display the correct navigation bar.
-Use Alarm Window:
This will display an Alarm Window control at the bottom of your display or above the navigation bar if enabled. This will be either “Standard Vu” alarm mode or “Alternate Alarm mode”. The scrollbar is disabled for this view and will only display 6 lines using the default font of “Arial regular Size 14”. The number of lines supported will change has you increase or decrease the font. The content will be that last most current transactions on your system.
-Use Alternate Alarm Window, this requires the “Use custom bar” to be checked on has well. This will be selected on when enabling this alternate view.
-Exit On Load Error
If an error exists when loading the menu files, the application will exit on startup.
-Default Help Map View
When selecting the “Help” button from the Menu bar, it will display the view selected from the hmihelp.wmp file in the root folder.

There is an editor which is available to edit the content of the bar. Selecting this item will run the “CustomBarEditor.exe” from the HMI Application folder.
The first Dialog displayed will assume the user wants to create a new bar and will prompt the user with its properties.
