1. Launching Contacts Utility from iFIX


The WIN-911 Contacts Utility can be launched from an iFIX Workspace Picture to provide a quick way for operators to make changes to the order of notifications and Connection details without leaving the iFIX Workspace application. This article will guide you through the configuration.


NOTE: This guide assumes the WIN-911 Contacts Utility was previously installed.

  1. Open iFIX Workspace in Configure mode and open the picture you'd like to launch the Contacts Utility from.

  2. Select the Insert ribbon then click Objects/Links > Push Button


  3. The button will appear in your Picture, move it to an appropriate location and give it a descriptive caption. For example, WIN-911 Contacts Utility


  4. Right-click the button and click Edit Script


  5. After clicking Edit Script, the VBA Editor will launch, you should see a Private Sub declared for the button you created.


  6. Paste the following into the Sub.
    Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
        Dim objShell
        Set WSHELL = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
        WSHELL.Exec ("C:\Program Files (x86)\WIN-911 Software\Contacts Utility\ContactsUtility.exe")
        Set objShell = Nothing
    End Sub


  7. Save your changes and switch Workspace to Run mode to test your button.
