2. PBUTTON: Object Properties

Open an Object Properties dialog box for an object with an PBUTTON class ID.

The tabs in the Object dialog box are:

  • PBUTTON General.
  • PBUTTON HMI Properties.


The Object dialog box General tab provides data that precisely identifies the PBUTTON object.

Note: The Description field is the only Read/Write field on the General tab.

PBUTTON HMI Properties

Each PPS function block has HMI properties.

When an Object dialog box is opened for a selected object, the values for these properties:

  • Can be defined in the Object dialog box.
  • Will display on the faceplate when it is first opened and as long as they are not changed.
  • (Some properties) May  be changed by faceplate users who have a role with the required level.

The HMI properties required for the HMI Discrete Pushbutton block are as follows.
