The Table Data widget type displays blocks as rows in a table. Each row in the table provides a label, icons, associated values, and actions for the referenced block. Additionally, the header of the table provides the ability to create new application blocks. The Table Data widget type supports two data criteria types—BACoid and UI Column. The Table Data widget does not allow hardware points or advanced objects to be displayed as rows in the table. See the following sections for more information on data criteria.

The Table Data widget includes an Order property that allows you to configure the order in which the blocks appear. For example, Figure 1 shows defined Table Data circled in red and the corresponding Table Data columns above. The Table Data column on the left shows the BACoid data in As Defined order, and the Table Data column on the right shows BACoid data in Alphabetical order. Notice that the order of BACoids in the table on the left matches the order of the BACoids circled in red in the Table Data configuration panel.

Note: When you select As Defined for State Generation Table Data, the blocks appear in the same order as the State Table. See Figure 2.
When running a simulation or viewing live data in the Commission mode, changing values are highlighted by a color. The color of the highlighting is determined by the frequency with which the value is changing. As poll cycles return consistent values, the highlighting fades away. The intention of this feature is to bring attention to changes across the application's data system, expose potential relationships between values and modules, and assist in troubleshooting.
Note: Temporary color highlighting appears in three color stages (blue, yellow, and red). After the third stage (red) has been reached, all subsequent consecutive changes continue to display red. For more information on status color, see Table 1.
