|Question:||When using MotionWorks+, is there a way to tell which version of a project is currently in the RAM memory of the MP940 and the last date it was revised?|
|Answer:||If revision data is needed, it can be managed by generating three CONSTANTS in the MW+ project file: Year, MonthDay, and RevisionNumber. This technique is a common practice among MW+ programmers to consistently maintain revisions. |
"Year": Assign to the initial value of this constant, the year the project was downloaded.
"MonthDay": Assign to the initial value of this constant the month and the day the project was downloaded.
If the project was downloaded on March 17th , the constant would be 3.17
"Project": Project Number.Revision level - If project number 176 with a revision level of 4 is in the memory, the
constant value would be assigned as 176.004
Assign the appropriate data to the initial value to these three constants. By using the data monitoring feature in MW+, the revision number can be seen. Using this method, it is important to remember to change the revision data manually every time a significant change to the project is made. There is no automatic update.
To retain each revision, be sure to save any changes as a new project.
