GETTING AROUND ONSPEC
The ONSPEC screen is made up of many parts. Usually an ONSPEC screen is made up of graphics, text, pull-down menus, function keys, and smart icons.
Directly below the title bar is the menu bar.
The pull-down menus include:
The security and visibility of each menu item can be changed using ONConfig's ONSPEC Initialization option. See the ONConfig User Guide for more information on changing menu items.
Below the pull-down menus are smart icons. The smart icons are a set of configurable buttons which when pressed execute commands. For more information on configuring smart icon see Configure Smart Icons.
Below the smart icons is the Graphics Display. This display consists of a drawing with objects (smart symbols and primitives) and a set of function buttons. The graphics display is created using ONBuild.
The Function Buttons are a set of eight buttons which are associated with the function keys F2 through F9. The functions may be positioned on any side of the display or be hidden.
When a function button or its associated key is pressed, OCL commands are executed. These commands are configured using ONBuild.
The alarm bar appears at the bottom of the ONSPEC screen. This is where the most recent alarm can be viewed.
