Description

This is the View itself. A view has properties that control the view size, defines how Tags are dropped into a view, and settings for loading client views. The View properties are the same for each container type: Column, Coordinate, Tab, Breakpoint, and Flex. View properties are displayed in the Perspective Property Editor when you click on the view in the Project Browser.



View Props

Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective.
This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.

loading

Options for loading the view.

NameDescriptionProperty Type
mode

Provides two options for loading views, particularly for views with a high number of components: blocking and non-blocking. Blocking loads faster for views with fewer components. Non-blocking loads views with a large number of components in chunks. Default is 'non-blocking'.

This feature is new in Ignition version 8.0.16

As of 8.0.16, views set to non-blocking will only wait patiently for five seconds if they have not been called.

Perspective Component Events

The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
