    Fx40 push button

    I am trying to implement a push button from a Px screen that will reset a DCO on a Dx9100.
    I want a 1 to be sent on the down and then a 0 on the up to toggle the digital constant.
    Am I missing something simple?
    thanks in advance

    So you're looking for the one only for a second or so?

    Look in kitPx, you'll find "action button". I've used that for DCO's.

    Set your DCO fallback to 0. You must do this because the following will only send the 1 value at priority 8. But when the priority 8 releases, the 0 in fallback will take control.

    Drag your DCO onto the px page, when the make wizard comes up, pick 'actions' on the left and 'Active' or 'Override ON' on the right, click ok.
    Double click the button on your px page to open Properties. Under the Action Binding header, click the space beside Action Arg. Unselect Prompt User, pick Custom from the drop down and type in the amount of time you want the 1 to be active. Ok, Ok, save. That should do it.

    Hmmm,,,,

    so your looking a 0 or a 1 ???

    Try a one shot to a numeric switch with true/false set to 0 0r 1 and other vise versa.

    I have been testing what you said on a bi on a unt and I am having no luck
    the value just stays at the fallback level
    thanks

    So you have the BI mapped as a Boolean Writable?

    Did you get through the rest of the setup OK?
