1. Launching Operator Workspace from iFIX


The WIN-911 Operator Workspace 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.


NOTEThis guide assumes the WIN-911 Operator Workspace 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 Operator Workspace

  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\Operator Workspace\WIN911.OperatorWorkspace.exe") Set objShell = Nothing End Sub

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