Description

A component that allows selection of sample intervals. All intervals that are configured in the project will appear in the list and can be selected by the user. See the Sample Intervals section for more information on intervals. There is no need for SQL queries or scripting to display intervals.

Event Handlers


Event handlers provide the ability to add custom script when a user interacts with a component such as by clicking a mouse, selecting a menu item or when a component property changes.

This event occurs when a component that can receive input, such as a text box, receives the input focus. This usually occurs when a user clicks on the component or tabs over to it.

PropertyDescription
.sourceThe component that fired this event.
.oppositeComponentThe other component involved in this focus change. That is, the component that lost focus in order for this one to gain it, or vice versa.

This event occurs when a component that had the input focus lost it to another component.

PropertyDescription
.sourceThe component that fired this event.
.oppositeComponentThe other component involved in this focus change. That is, the component that lost focus in order for this one to gain it, or vice versa.

An integer that indicates whether the state was changed to "Selected" (on) or "Deselected" (off). Compare this to the event object's constants to determine what the new state is.

PropertyDescription
.sourceThe component that fired this event.
.keyCodeThe key code for this event. Used with the keyPressed and keyReleased events. See below for the key code constants.
.keyCharThe character that was typed. Used with the keyTyped event.
.keyLocationReturns the location of the key that originated this key event. Some keys occur more than once on a keyboard, e.g. the left and right shift keys. Additionally, some keys occur on the numeric keypad. This provides a way of distinguishing such keys. See the KEY_LOCATION constants in the documentation. The keyTyped event always has a location of KEY_LOCATION_UNKNOWN.
.altDownTrue (1) if the Alt key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.controlDownTrue (1) if the Ctrl key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.shiftDownTrue (1) if the Shift key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.

Fires when a key is released and the source component has the input focus. Works for all characters, including non-printable ones, such as SHIFT and F3.

PropertyDescription

.keyCodeThe key code for this event. Used with the keyPressed and keyReleased events. See below for the key code constants.

.altDownTrue (1) if the Alt key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.controlDownTrue (1) if the Ctrl key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.shiftDownTrue (1) if the Shift key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.

Fires whenever a bindable property of the source component changes. This works for standard and custom (dynamic) properties.

PropertyDescription

.altDownTrue (1) if the Alt key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.controlDownTrue (1) if the Ctrl key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.shiftDownTrue (1) if the Shift key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.

This event signifies a mouse click on the source component. A mouse click the combination of a mouse press and a mouse release, both of which must have occurred over the source component. Note that this event fires after the pressed and released events have fired.

PropertyDescription
.sourceThe component that fired this event.
.buttonThe code for the button that caused this event to fire.
.clickCountThe number of mouse clicks associated with this event.
.xThe x-coordinate (with respect to the source component) of this mouse event.
.yThe y-coordinate (with respect to the source component) of this mouse event.
.popupTriggerReturns True (1) if this mouse event is a popup trigger. What constitutes a popup trigger is operating system dependent, which is why this abstraction exists.
.altDownTrue (1) if the Alt key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.controlDownTrue (1) if the Ctrl key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.
.shiftDownTrue (1) if the Shift key was held down during this event, false (0) otherwise.

This event fires when the mouse enters the space over the source component.

Fires whenever a bindable property of the source component changes. This works for standard and custom (dynamic) properties.

PropertyDescription
.sourceThe component that fired this event.
.newValueThe new value that this property changed to.
.oldValueThe value that this property was before it changed. Note that not all components include an accurate oldValue in their events.
.propertyNameThe name of the property that changed. NOTE: Remember to always filter out these events for the property that you are looking for! Components often have many properties that change.




Extension Functions

This component does not have extension functions associated with it. 




Custom Methods

Custom methods allow you to add your own component functions to a component that can be called through scripting. This is a useful and clean method of re-using script that is specific to the component (say you want to update a visual aspect of the component in the same way whether a user clicks on the component or a window property value changes). See Component Custom Methods in the Ignition Help Manual for more information.
