How to get and display HMI target's IP address with Vijeo designer

Published date: 15 April 2019

1. Issue

This FAQ describes how to get the display HMI target’s IP address with Vijeo Designer

2. Environment

Vijeo Designer 6.2

3. Resolution

In Vijeo Designer, no system variable can be directly used to get HMI target’s IP address. However, we can use system function getinfostring() to get HMI’s IP address and display during runtime.

Examples (Ethernet 1 IP Address):
             Sys.getInfoString(IP_ADDRESS_1)
             Sys.getInfoString(IP_ADDRESS)

            
   Note:
  1. The value displayed by the getInfoString() method is the system information at Startup. That    
             information will not be updated once the program is running
  1.  getInfoString() always returns an empty string when used in Web Gate.
