  • Create a "Standard project" and select CODESYS Control Win V3 as the device.
  • Define the target system by means of the Network scan.

  • Insert a visualization in the device tree.
    Then the Visualization Manager is inserted with the visu types TargetVisuand WebVisu.

    In addition, a Visu_Task is also created automatically.

  • Create a new POU named ClientInfo and call it from Visu_Task.

    The call of the ClientInfo POU must originate from the Visu_Task because only then is the required client handle passed.

  • Adapt the ClientInfo POU as follows:


        pClient       :    POINTER TO VisuElems.VisuElemBase.VisuStructClientData;
        helper        :    VisuElems.VisuFbClientTagDataHelper;
        s1            :    STRING;


    WHILE (pClient := VisuElems.VisuElemBase.g_ClientManager.GetNextClient()) <> 0 DO
        IF pClient^.GlobalData.ClientType = VisuElems.VisuElemBase.Visu_ClientType.WebVisualization THEN
            helper(pClientData := pClient);
            s1 := helper.stIPv4;

  • Start the project and set a breakpoint in line 6 of the ClientInfo POU.

  • Open a browser and type in the following address: http://localhost:8080/webvisu.htm
  • After the client has connected, execution is halted at the breakpoint and the IP address can be read.

    The information is available only for web clients. A TargetVisu connected to the controller does not contain this information.

  • No labels
