I recently created a screen with some SQL quires showing particular digital points. It's working fine and showing on the Main but it's not displaying the query on the display.
(The Query is showing blank with a red x in the top left corner of the query.
This seems like a simple fix (Please help)
Reply User: tfranklin, posted: 2019-01-15 19:39:43 Is this an embedded mimic? You can't put a list on an embedded mimic.
Reply User: KylePaynter123, posted: 2019-01-16 12:36:05 No it's a List I created from the graphics menu, with a specific query made for those list.
So in screens when I open (Main it's working, but when I open Display I see the list but it has no information inside ) just a red x

Apparently I had to Group the folder I created as it was a template. Once that I did that I could now edit the Main and Display Screens.
I also had to remove the list from the Main as it was showing on the Display.
It's working fine now but the Main has no quires on it (I'm looking into this)

'group the folder I created as it was a template' is very confusing in ClearSCADA world, there is no such thing as 'a folder', they are Groups (CGroup inheritance), which would technically include Templates and Template Instances.
As noted by others, you can't have query lists on embedded mimics (well you can try, they just won't work). So for a query list to work, it must be on the 'top level' mimic that is being displayed.
