How do you create your own block icons with SIMATIC PCS 7?
With SIMATIC PCS 7 block icons are supplied by default in template files and are automatically available to the user in the project. If you call the "Create/Update Block Icons" function in the SIMATIC Manager, the relevant block icons are created for the technological blocks in the process screen and are connected automatically with the measuring point. In this way the operator gets a display of the status and alarm information in the process screen. You click a block icon to open the associated faceplate.
