# OI Builder Versions

# 1.11 (Development)

  • OIB 1.11 Build Dec 11 2020
    • Component Line, new feature: dynamic line. Added tags for line's begin & end points (beginX, beginY, endX, endY tags).
  • OIB 1.11 Build Dec 02 2020
    • Image Collection - Resize image
      • resize is not allowed if the image is not application's image (it happens if image is added from somewhere on the disk and application was not yet saved)
      • after image resize – Image Component's properties zoomX and zoomY are refreshed in property editor
  • OIB 1.11 Build Nov 27 2020
    • Tools → Image Collection dialog was improved:
      • Added switch for image preview icon size with 64×64 px and 128×128 px options
      • Information about selected image is displayed on the bottom of the dialog. It includes:
        • file location on the disk
        • file size
        • image pixel size
        • list of screens where the image is used
        • maximum size from all components where the image is used, this is useful if user wants do lower image pixel size, it gives him information what is maximum usable image size
      • Resize button opens dialog for image resize function
    • New functionality Screen → Select Duplicate Components
      • All components that have the same values of all properties but 'name' are selected. Components that were inserted on the screen earlier are considered as original, later inserted components are considered as duplicities. For state components, all property values of all states are also compared. Selected components can be deleted or copied/cut to clipboard.
    • New functionality Application → Application Cleaner allows to clean inconsistencies in oi application which would otherwise have to be corrected directly in the app's source files (in xml file or in other app files)
      • can remove old weld monitor devices in xml file
      • can remove devices that don't have assigned protocol in xml file (those devices are not accessible for user in oib and have no functional meaning)
      • can remove image files that belong to application by following file name pattern 'ApplicationName___imageName.jpg' but are not inserted into image collection (those files are probably relict after image renames in the past)
      • this way we can add more cleaning rules in the future
  • OIB 1.11 Build Apr 30 2020
    • Camera RTSP Video Viewer - added playVideoTag property
    • Camera Image Viewer - added refreshTag property
    • Added 'Show Log' dialog into menu Help - it is useful for troubleshooting bugs in the oib
    • Open SSL libraries are included in zip file, so now ssl works in oib. For example you can set imageUrl as 'https' in the Camera Image Viewer.
  • OIB 1.11 Build Apr 24 2020
    • Camera RTSP Video Viewer - improved reconnect after network drops
  • OIB 1.11 Build Apr 22 2020
    • Camera RTSP Video Viewer bug fixes
  • OIB 1.11 Build Apr 06 2020
    • Camera RTSP Video Viewer component added. Live video preview is supported in oib after choosing “Preview video” from context menu. Windows Direct Show is used to play the video. Right filters have to be installed into Windows Direct Show. We have tested K-Lite Codec Pack https://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm . Basic variant of K-Lite Codec Pack works well.
  • OIB 1.11 Build Feb 27 2020
    • Fill Slide and Dial components have possibility of multi-state range mode similar to Multistate Indicator.
  • OIB 1.11 Build Feb 18 2020

  • OIB 1.11 Build Sep 30 2019
    • Confirmation panels for Push Button and Goto Screen components
    • Property editor: tag field improved entering tag - tag is now entered only after it is selected from validator combo box list. It allows better edition of tag name (ie. back space doesn't clear whole tag name).

  • OIB 1.11 Build Aug 06 2018
    • Alarm system support

    • Component Generic Run: new property hasRaiseOIButton
    • ssl/https support for components DB Image Capture, Camera Viewer
  • OIB 1.11 Build Jul 02 2018
    • Component Database Table - data source property name is
      • “dataSourceSQL” if readOnly = True OR
    • “dataSourceTable” if readOnly = False
  • OIB 1.11 Build June 29 2018
    • Tag Editor
      • New feature / bugfix: if the tag name is changed in the tag editor then this change takes effect in all loaded and not-loaded screens. Up to now it took effect only for loaded screens. It also includes database sources.
      • Used Components (list of components using currently selected tag) bug fixes. It is working better especially for components DBTable, DBWrite, TagCopy, Script, ReadFile, WriteFile. It also includes database sources.
    • Tag Editor + Property Editor + State Editor
      • While editing text fields the Enter key must be pressed to apply the change. Escape key (or mouse click outside of edited field) can be used to cancel editing.
    • Component Screen - new properties
      • isOverlay - true = this screen is used as overlay screen for alarms
      • this property is read-only
    • OI alarm system settings dialog modifications (Application - Settings - Alarms tab)
  • OIB 1.11 Build June 15 2018
    • OI alarm system settings: Application - Settings - Alarms
  • OIB 1.11 Build May 31 2018
    • Database components are now using Database source system. This change keeps both backward and forward compatibility, 1.10->1.11 and 1.11->1.10. Following components are affected:
      • DB Read
      • DB Edit
      • DB Write
      • DB Image Viewer
    • DB Table is unchanged, it is out of the new Database source system so its data source is still entered in component's property editor. It is because DB Table uses asynchronous database connection in separated thread which is not possible to simply move to oi hw layer as in other components. Idea for future improvement is to make hw layer capable of async database connections in separated thread.
  • OIB 1.11 Build May 25 2018
    • Change of database management concept. Up today oib databases were rather component based -- user selected component and then had to enter all db connection settings (db name, db table or sql query, etc.). Since now oib databases are more data oriented -- user first defines and manages all database sources in new dialog from menu Tools -> Database Collection. Afterwards those db sources can be assigned to the components. Also one db source can be used by multiple components.
  • OIB 1.11 Build Feb 02 2018
    • bugfix: the artifacts are mostly gone
    • bugfix: missing offscreen area if grid is off
    • grid pixels are little bit darker now
    • grid is not drawn on offscreen area
    • offscreen area is indicated by solid dark red color (previously it was hatched)
  • OIB 1.11 Build Jan 31 2018
    • Supports screen zooming
      • there is known problem with graphics artifacts if screen is zoomed out, it is bug in Qt 5.6 and later
