Field controllers use the Configuration Tool (CCT) to configure content displayed for the MAP Gateway. You can configure the display after you select the hardware in the Hardware Definition Wizard of the Configuration Tool. Once a display is configured for and downloaded to a controller, a MAP Gateway is able to use the configuration data to determine what information it shows for that controller.
For more information on how to use CCT, see Control Tool Help. (LIT-12011147).
Use a custom display object to determine how information displays in the MAP Gateway UI.
For the MAP Gateway, the Display Configuration allows you to:
- define which folders and points appear on the home page
- define the order and groupings of folders and points on the home page
- edit point user names and descriptions using the Mass Edit feature
After you configure the display and download the application to the controller, you can then click Rediscover Devices in the MAP Gateway Device List page. The MAP Gateway refreshes and reads the new display information.
