This is how to embed an Ignition project as a Java applet in a webpage.
Java does a pretty good job at making applications look the same on Windows and Linux. But the default fonts that Java uses on Linux are not the same fonts used for Windows. This causes a problem for implementing GUI projects on Linux that will be used on Windows. The default font used on Linux can have different dimensions than the fonts used on Windows causing differences in the flow of text and messing up components in windows. Here is an example:
I am very interested in creating a Weather Radar Module for Ignition. The module would provide a new component that provides a map of weather conditions.
Testing and debugging event scripts on components is easy. Open up the Output Console in the Designer and sprinkle your code with print statements to see what is going on.
This approach doesn't work as well with gateway scripts because print statements are not output to the Output Console in the Designer.
A gateway script is any Python script that runs in the Gateway and not in a designer or client. Here are a variety of tools to use for testing and debugging gateway scripts:
