Auto Populate: Automatically fills in the display configuration for compatibility with the local controller display.
Note: Auto Populate may also be used for the MAP Gateway. In this case, you can rename any folder and add any amount of User Defined pages to the display.

Tool Tip: Displays folder expectations for local controller display compatibility, including:

  • Idle Page: Defines the points that are shown while the device is in Idle mode. The display is in Idle mode when no one is logged in to the display. The Idle Page cycles through the selected items in the order the points are arranged. Re-order idle points by dragging and dropping points within the tree. The Idle mode option is only enabled for items in the Idle Page.

  • Inputs/Outputs Page: Shows which inputs (sensors) and outputs (control points) are defined in the display.
  • Parameters Page: Shows the BACnet exposed elements for all modules within the application. This list also includes any network inputs or outputs defined in the display.
  • User Defined Page: This page is optional for local controller display setup. You can manually add one User Defined Page through the Create Page dialog. Additional folders are not recognized by the local controller display. After adding a User Defined Page, you may add any folders or points from the System Tree in the folder and group or arrange folders and points as desired.

Create Page

Creates a new folder at the bottom of the tree.

For any setup apart from local controller displays, you can customize the configuration completely by adding new folders and copying System Tree points to the Display Configuration tree.


Import: Imports an XML or CAF file from any folder.

Export: Exports an XML file to any folder.
Note: You must click Apply to save your configuration before exporting a file.
