    Thank you. I agree with the other comments there that it would be nice to see some documentation for these sort of features.

    I would like to open a dialog box at a position relative to the calling element, in this case a button. Looking through here: https://help.codesys.com/webapp/_visu_dlg_input_configuration;product=core_visualization;version=3.5.15.0 under the input action "Write a Variable", it says "You can use the placeholders ElementRectangle.ptTopLeft.iX and .iY ElementRectangle.ptBottomRight.iY. It is replaced at runtime by the coordinates of the calling element". Does this apply to the input action "Open Dialog"...

    Thanks for the input. I ended up configuring the text field as %s, and referencing properties of type STRING in the function block. The visualization then calls the get/set functions of the property, which do the conversion and error checking for the input, etc.

    But I still want the error checking (which is present in the date and time picker) in case someone enters "99:88" or something

    Basically, yes. It comes out of a service call I had, where the operator was trying to enter "11:55" into a text field configured as %t[HH:mm]. It wouldn't work because he had to enter it as "TOD#11:55". Which is not something the average operator is going to know, he just wants to enter a time

    Yeah it just seems odd that you can configure it with a TOD variable, and then the date picker does nothing. Basically I'm trying to configure a time of day input field. Configuring it like %t[HH:mm] works except then the operator has to enter 'TOD#11:55', which is confusing. I could use a string input (%s), but then I have to convert to TOD if/when the input is valid, and the visualization can't convert variables on the input side, only in the "Text Variable" field. I guess I just figured there...

    Is there any way to configure a date and time picker to only be able to select the time of day, not the date as well? I have it configured with a TOD variable and a format string of HH:mm, and everything works fine, I basically just don't want to see the dropdown arrow with the date selector, which doesn't actually do anything when configured with a TOD variable.

    OK, thanks for the information, it has helped me to narrow down the problem. I had a library with quite a few enumerations, all of which had text list support. If I remove the text list support from some of them, things start to work. Then I added another library, and it stopped working again, until I removed more text list support. Maybe I was hitting the limit of available memory for text lists, which is why sometimes one library would appear to be causing the issue, another times, a different...
