Improved Database Tag Records
One of the first changes you might notice upon upgrading to DBDOC 10.5.1 (download here), is the completely reworked presentation of database tag records in the Hyperview browser.
For historical reasons, tag records displayed in Hyperview used to look like this:
Complete Tag Information from Operate IT and SPlus
In addition, ALL data is now extracted from Operate IT (PPB and 800xA) XML database files, and are now be usefully displayed (and searchable) within DBDOC. Previously only a limited subset of tag attributes was extracted by DBDOC and presented in the Hyperview browser.
Extended Support for SPlus and PGP Graphics
Extended and Reworked Support for 800xA Graphics
The support for 800xA has been completely reworked to make use of data extracted by programs from Assistance Système LD Inc. (ASSYST) giving better images, access to controller data and text searching on graphics, and eliminating the numbers and arrows seen in earlier versions using the previous approach to extracting these graphics for DBDOC.
In addition to the major developments described above, 10.5.1 delivers plenty of minor bug fixes and
improvements. More DBDOC error types have now been converted to display in the Error Browser. Live data (notably in the Watch Window) can now be requested every 100ms. Go To Use right-click navigation in Hyperview now places system uses before DBDOC generated documents. Timestamp labels can now be hidden in the Watch Window. CIUMon logging has been improved in many ways. Command line support for importing DBDOC projects has been implemented, making it much easier to migrate the DBDOC build system to a new computer. And many more small changes which you may or may not encounter but which increase DBDOC's robustness and usefulness in specific situations.
If you haven't already, take a moment to download DBDOC 10.5.1 and upgrade your system.
