    Hello Everybody, my first post here.
    I can't find my way to add an on screen command (it's a touch panel) to shut down the HMI runtime just like "Alt+F4" would do.
    That's because it happens that there's no keyboard connected.
    Thanks for you help.
    Marco

    Hello Marco,

    you can add the library ComponentManager and then use CMShutdown(0).

    Best regards,
    Marcel

    Hello Marcel,
    thanks for your reply, but I still can't make it:
    I added the library Componentmanager, then added a pushbutton with the properties shown in the attached image, compiled, downloaded into target, the button is there but on click nothing happens.
    Any suggestion?
    Thanks, Marco

    Hello Marco,

    no, that should work.

    Please report the issue in the store using the "my question" feature (https://store.codesys.com/).

    Best regards,
    Marcel

    they say it's a well known issue.
    The suggestion is to use the taskkill function.
    I've decided to write a simple file:

    and execute it by means of my on screen command:

    And all went good...
    Hope this helps,
    Marco

    Hi,
    another option would be to use
    close only the HMI screen ( not the HMI itself):
    "C:\Program Files\3S CODESYS\GatewayPLC\VisualClientController.exe" --application=Application --flags=2

    open it again:
    "C:\Program Files\3S CODESYS\GatewayPLC\VisualClientController.exe" --application=Application --flags=1
    guess better then the hard way

    BR

    My bad, I tested it with a HMI, which was not installed as a service and there it worked fine...

    Best regards,
