  • 4.1 Operator Mode Question

    I'm getting the File Manager window when I open in Operator Mode, instead of the Marked Sets window. After you navigate and open a program, the Marked Sets window opens. How do I change it so when I open the Operator Mode, the Marked Sets window is the only thing that is displayed? I don't want the operators to have to navigate/browse to find their programs.

    I'm not sure that is an option. How do you intend to allow for sellection of a program? Or is this dedicated to 1 part? Or is it just the file browsing that you want to keep them away from? I don't think you can even delete the File Manager Icon in the marked sets window (I tried it).

      Through the Marked Sets window. I was told older versions launched only the Marked Sets window when opening Operator mode.

      Or is this dedicated to 1 part?
      No, multiple parts.

      Or is it just the file browsing that you want to keep them away from?
      I just don't want them to have to file browse to find the programs when you can have the icons in the Marked Sets window for easy access.

        I see what you are doing. You have one program that contains marked sets for multiple parts. What version? I run Operator mode on one machine here that is 3.2063 and it has the File Manager. You could use Excell to make a form with one button that launches PCDMIS, then opens the one program with the marked sets but then you still face having an icon for the File Manager. I don't have anything to offer in regards to that icon. If you want to go an alternate route you could do a front end with VB, Excell or Hypereport (if you are <4.0).

          I'm running 4.1. The file manager icon in the marked sets window is fine, I just don't want it to open when operator mode is opened. I'll play around with your suggestions.

          Thanks for you help.

            Is it possible to have the Marked Sets window automatically open, when the program is opened in online mode. If so, how?
