I'm trying to open a PDF document from PI-PB display. I have defined a button for this purpose and it worked, but my issue now is that I want to automate this button to point to the latest PDF document since I know that there will be an updated version from time to time.
My plan is to do it using VBA macros in PB (by an if statement inside a loop to check each time the button is clicked if the name of the PDF file matches a pre-defined name,which is the latest version, and if yes then opens it) but I'm new to the syntax/commands and the program itself and I don't know much about it's capabilities and limitations.
So, what I'm exactly looking for is how to use macros commands to:
- To define a button?
- To open a PDF file?
- and do I need to define my PI server or type a specific command to link the display to the macros?
Any help or thoughts?
