How to improve the performance of searching for a register in a large project

Goals and Symptoms

How to improve the performance of searching for a register on a large project.

Facts and Changes

All versions of 'ProWORX 32'

Causes and Fixes

Searching for a register that is used in every network of a large project that contains 1000 or more
networks can take up to 30 minutes, when the project is connected to the PLC in either Online or
Combined mode. The problem is due to the constant updating of the opened Logic window and the
caching/display of the search results taking place at the same time.

To workaround this problem, close the Logic window before starting the search. After the search is
completed, re-open the Logic window. 'ProWORX 32' will remember the network that was last
displayed when the Logic window was closed.

A search for a register that is used in every network of a 1600 network project will take about 2 to 3
minutes using this workaround
