The module copies an image when triggered by a selected variable. It is adjustable how many images should be saved.

  • Adjustable number of images to be saved
  • When a trigger variable is selected, an event is created that reacts to its update
  • The event can be fully personalized except for the trigger variable
  • Images get the time of triggering as name
  • Images are displayed chronologically from old -> new in the category images
  • Automatic deletion of the oldest images, when the maximum number of images is reached

WebFront

The WebFront is used to display the variable. No further control or separate display is integrated.

To display the images in the 'Bildarchiv' category, a content divider can be added in the WebFront or a link of the category can be made.
Attention: It is not useful to link directly the images from the archive, because the updates change the ID's.
