Setting Up Marquee Mode
The nice feature with Marquee Mode, is it automatically scrolls through all the alarms when there is not enough vertical space on the client window to show them all at once.
- Select the Alarm Status Table. In the Property Editor of the Alarm Status Table, set the Marquee Mode to ‘true.’
- This client screen shows you a typical Alarm Status Table using the Marquee Mode located at the bottom of the window. The Alarm Status Table automatically scrolls through all alarms that are currently visible. Marquee Mode makes it very easy for operators to see what’s going on without having to manually scroll through the entire list of alarms to identify all the alarms that are Active or that need attention.
Set filters and inform operators that Marquee Mode is a scrolling list of alarms
When using Marquee Mode, it is even more important to pay attention to the filters configured on the Alarm Status Table since there is limited room. Make sure your operators know that even though the Alarm Status Table may be small, when Marquee Mode is enabled it becomes a scrolling list.
