Hi All,

Using a T7B screen I am trying to set the time to a particular value (3:30am) on receipt of a input tag. The plant DCS sends this to all the different PLCs.

I have seen the topics below but these call for the coredll.dll which doesnt seem to be there.


Any help would be appreciated.

For information:

I managed to get this resolved using a script which originally used the http header of a preset website to parse the time & date out.

A string box was added to a screen to allow the user to set the time and then when the screen received the digital input signal the script was executed and the time set to the value.

This seems complicated but the plant DCS was the only device allowed to be networked and the digital pulse was sent to all controllers to set all of them to the DCS time.

If anyone needs the code then feel free to msg.
