How can we change the background color of animation point when there is there is communication error or bad tag quality in SCADAExpert Vijeo Citect.

 In Vijeo Citect you can change the background color in case there is Bad/Uncertain quality of Tag value. For this you will have to add few INI parameter in Citect.INI which is as follows:

[Page]IgnoreValueQuality =2 {To set to display the background color based on tag quality}
[Page]BadTextBackgroundColor = <Value from 0x000000 to 0xFFFFFF (The RGB color value in hexadecimal) > {Set the background color for Bad quality}
[Page]UncertainTextBackgroundColor = <Value from 0x000000 to 0xFFFFFF (The RGB color value in hexadecimal) > {Set the background color for Uncertain quality}

For other animation object like motor and Valve you can use Tag Extension of Quality. For example you have a Tag Name Motor_1 then you can use Motor_1.q and make a color animation if Motor_1.q<>"GOOD" then change the animation color property of Motor or Valve or any other object.
