Application Search Box

Application Search Box


Application Search Box is simple search box which finds station assets via tag name or NEQL syntax. Found items are displayed in a results box below the input area. Result items consist of an ord, location in station, and history link (if applicable). When a user clicks on the link or history link, they are redirected to ord the location. This widget utilises Niagara's new search service, but does not subscribe to data, only finds station components. Add this widget to any page and find station resources quickly. The widget has a number of configurable properties that can be used to modify look, feel, and functionality.


1. Copy the applicationSearchBox-ux file to your modules directory.
2. Open the module from your palette file.
3. Drag and drop the widget from the palette onto your px view.

Using in your HTML Page

You can now use the widget in your custom html page as long as the html file is in a appropriate station directory.
E.g. C:/../stationName/shared/webfiles/demo1.html

1. Create an html page and place in your station files directory.
2. Create a div element and give it an id so you can inject the widget into this area. E.g.: widget1.
3. Add the following scripts before the closing head tag or the closing body tag. E.g.:

<script type="text/javascript">

    var require = {
        paths: {
            "nmodule": "/module",
            "baja": "/module/bajaScript/rc/plugin/baja",

Widgets and drivers must be licensed with us. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Finally, make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.
