Wonderware Intouch Time Stamp

Hi.. I was looking for a bit of help from someone that works with intouch scada... At the moment I have a Box that contains an animated Tick when a wash is complete.. This reads a Plc point ( wash01.01 ) From the plc and once the wash is complete point comes live and my Tick Appears on the Scada,Which is easy control.

What I am looking to do is instead of a tick is to have a timestamp instead..
1)Is there a small script that if a scada point comes live that I can populate a dialogue box with a time stamp..
2)There are 160 washes,, I know that I can generate a Time stamp using an intiger in the code for each of the 160 washes in the form of (2206011102 eg 11:02 on the 01062022) and one shot it each time to the scada.. But I was woundering if someone had found an easy way to do a simple memory timestamp

3) I know I could use the evet manager to display the event of the wash end, but for operators I know that I will get complaints that it is complicated,, Just a simple screen with the 160 washes and when they were completed time stamp instead of a tick..

Any Help or ideas would be greatly appreciated
John

InTouch tags have .dotfield sub-attributes if you wanted to use that. When the tick value changes, it should get a current timestamp in a dotfield. There are various formats:

TickTagName.TimeDate

or
.TimeDateString
.TimeDateTime
.TimeDay
.TimeHour
.TimeMinute
.TimeMonth
.TimeMsec
.TimeSecond
.TimeTime
.TimeTimeString
.TimeYear

Thanks

Ynpmoose,,
Thank you so much for your reply below... Took me a an hour to figure it out, but it is a great stamping system. Really do appreciate you sharing your knowledge.

I must do a bit of tweeking on my tags as they are I/O Integers..
My PLC Code is in the DINT format with the 32 Bits

My Intouch Tag is Wash,, But being that I am using the 32bit setup
my string is actually (Wash.01.TimeDateString) but this is not being accepted,,
I also tried (Wash.01 = 1.TimeDateString) but unfortunately this too failed to be accepted..
But overall a great outcome..

Thanks so much Ynpmoose for your help.. Back on Wednesday so hoping to put the project to bed..

Regards
John

You could try to setup a secondary boolean IO tag that is set to IO source Wash.01, then reference secondarytag.TimeDateString
