To launch the Mobile Client
- Go to the Gateway Home page.
- In the Mobile Launch section, click on http://ipaddress:8088/main/system/mobile. This address will need to be changed to reflect the computer that your Ignition system is installed on.
The Client launches on your mobile device.
- Choose the project you want to open, then login with your username and password.
The Project is displayed. If there is only one project in the mobile project list, the list will be skipped and you will be sent directly to the login screen.
- To check how many Clients are launched, go to the Status > Vision Clients page of the Gateway.
Launch Mobile Client without viewing the mobile project selection page
It is possible to bypass the mobile project selection page by adding the project name to the URL:
Viewing the Gateway Web Interface on a Mobile Device
The Gateway will automatically redirect mobile devices to the Mobile Project Selection screen. In some cases, it may be preferable to view the normal Gateway Web Pages on the mobile device, such as the Gateway Logs, or the Performance page. To bypass the mobile project selection screen, simply type the address of a specific page on your gateway into your mobile device's browser. For example, viewing the Overview page in the Status section on a mobile device would look like the following: http://ipAddress:port/main/web/status/
Mobile Project Launch Links
You can add mobile project launch links to the home screen of a mobile device. Links can point to either the project listing page or directly to a single project. You can even type the launch link into the browser of your mobile device.
Mobile Client Settings
In the project properties in the Designer, there is a page specific to Mobile clients if you have the mobile module installed. Here you can enable the project for Mobile, set fit, auto-login, and more.
When designing or viewing your project from a mobile device, whether it is a tablet or a mobile phone, you want to make sure your device's pixel resolution is picture perfect. You can use the default mobile client size setting to "Fit to Device," or you can set a custom pixel size.
Mobile Module Tags
Using the Mobile Module adds additional (client scoped) tags to the System Tags folder under System -> Mobile. This adds Remote Address and User Agent values. If location is enabled in the mobile browser, the Location tags will show Latitude, Longitude, etc.
