JMRI: LogixNG Table
The LogixNG table contains a list of the defined LogixNGs.
The LogixNG table lists all of the currently defined LogixNGs.
Each row has a standard set of columns.
- System Name
- The system name for the LogixNG. LogixNG system names have an IQ prefix
normally followed by numbers. For details about the LogixNG system name, see
Add a LogixNG. The system name cannot be changed.
- User Name
- The user name for the LogixNG. This is a free form field that contains a meaningful name.
- A LogixNG can be enabled or disabled. When it is disabled, the related
ConditionalNGs will not be active.
- A free form comment field for the LogixNG
- The Select combo box is used to select actions for the
selected LogixNG. See Select Actions
The dropdown combo box has 4 actions that can be applied to the current LogixNG row.
- When Edit is selected, the LogixNG editor will open.
This window will contain the ConditionalNGs that have been defined for this
LogixNG. See LogixNG Editor
- The Browse option opens a text window with a representation
of the definitions within the LogixNG. See LogixNG
Browser for details about the browser.
- The Copy action is used to create a duplicate of the current LogixNG.
Note: This feature is not available yet.
- The Delete action deletes the current LogixNG, all of its ConditionalNGs and
the ConditionalNG content. A confirmation dialog will be displayed.
- The options menu has two items: Enable All LogixNGs and
Disable All LogixNGs. Selecting one of these will perform
the action on all the LogixNGs in the table.
- The tools menu has one item: Open PickList Tables. The
PickList was designed for dragging names, such as sensor names, to a text field.
Due to the implementation of ConditionalNG edit dialogs, the drag and drop
capability does not function. It can still be used as a reference.
Add a LogixNG
To create a new LogixNG, click on the Add... button. The
Add LogixNG window will be displayed.
The system name is required. The system name for a LogixNG always begins with
the letters IQ. If the entered name does not start with
IQ, it will be automatically added. The typical suffix is a number. If
Automatically generate System Name is checked, the system name
format will be IQ:AUTO:nnnn. Any other format requires adding a
$ (dollar) character between IQ and the suffix.
The user name is optional but recommended. A user name may be any useful text,
provided the new user name was not previously assigned to another LogixNG. Once a
LogixNG is created, its system name cannot be changed. Its user name may be changed
in either the LogixNG Table or the Edit LogixNG window. The user name is usually
used to provide a more descriptive name, for example, "Signal 5 Control".
After clicking Create, the LogixNG will be created and the
Edit LogixNG window will appear.
