ThinManager has an Override feature that allows Display Clients to be configured with different login or video setting than the terminal. It is configured in the Display Client Configuration Wizard.
This can be necessary when running several instances of an HMI on a terminal.
The Display Client List Wizard can be launched by either:
- Right clicking on the Display Client branch and choosing the Add Display Client command to create a new Display Client.
- Double clicking on the Display Client in the Display Client branch of the ThinManager tree to open an existing one.
Terminal Configuration Wizard – Display Client Selection
The Override button will allow any Display Client to be configured with different settings than the terminal. The Override button becomes active when two or more Display Clients are added to the Selected Display Client column.
Highlighting a selected Display Client and clicking the Override button will launch an Override Settings widow for the selected Display Client.
