How to make an Editbox

There are different ways of sending values from Editbox to the driver channel. Let’s examine three main options on the example of the Modbus driver (setting up for other drivers is identical)

1. The easiest way is to send text from Editbox by clicking Enter (the "Enter" event of the item)

2. The second variant suggests inputting text in Editbox and sending in by clicking the Ok button located next to Editbox.

3. In the third variant we create Editbox and make it visible only for the time when we input text. The rest of the time only the display with the information about the current state of the controlled variable will be seen. The Ok button also becomes visible only when Editbox is activated. It sends input values to item channels.

4. See the file Custom_Password.irpz. Here u can find a way to use the Editbox like a password field. It works with iRidium script [JS].
* you can also find your own way to create an Editbox *


auto saving, backup of project and restore

If you mark the corresponding box (Tools > Options > File Operating > Backup: []) in the settings of GUI Editor, then each time the project is saved the project copy will be saved in this folder.

The copies do not substitute each other, so you will have access to previous versions of your project. The folder for storing copies is called Backup. It is located next to the initial version of the project.

Auto-saving is not supported.

Creating your own themes for the installation wizard

If you want you can create your own themes for the new installation wizard.
Open the GUI Editor > Open Gallery > Select folder Themes > Right Click on the Themes Folder, and choose "Add Folder" > Type in any name plus the Theme.

For example, "My Blue Theme"
Select the folder you have just created, so that you see in the right pane of the gallery an empty space. Open any project. Drag and drop any Popup or Page into the right pane of the gallery.

To test, just create a new project. In the project Properties screen, click on the "Start" button in the Wizard section. Now  you should see in the drop down list of available themes your new theme.

MSVCR100.dll missing

Text field of a button - pasting large amount of text

GUI Editor has a limit for text on one item. If you cannot add the big piece of text on the item, please create a new item below and put there end of text.

Windows 8 access to network shares

It is possible that the saving project from Editor to remote resource works slow on Windows 8.
If the saving of project works slow, please save it to the local PC first, and then copy to remote resource.

animation effect scale

If you apply the scale animation effect on a popup, it only works if the ScaleX, ScaleY are left at 0.
In the field Scale XScale Y you must input value from 0 to 1.

Active Touch property ignored

In the current version the Active Touch property works the same as Bounding Box, it is not ignoring the transparent part of item. We plan to implement this property in the future.

IP Cameras Gallery

The gallrey of IP cameras implemented in iRIdium GUI Editor for this models:
- DLink (291 items)
- Panasonic (203 items)
- Axis (183 items)

In Gallery of IP cameras we use information from

How identify OS Name in Client

You can use system token:

with Editor:
System Tokenes / OS / Name

with Script:


Change color backgroud for App

You can see 2 black bars above and underneath of GUI, if the resolution of GUI is not the same as a panel resolution.
You can also change the color of this bars in GUI Editor or change a project scaling from Proportional to Full Screen.
It can be made in Project Properties in GUI Editor.

Storing Slider Values in Pages

It is possible to create sliders or use permanent memory adresses to store
a set value within iridium even when the remote app is turned off.

Project tokens are meant to be used as permanent storage (for small chunks of data), see
Also, you can do this via iRidium API.

Is the downloaded GUI Editor fully functional?

You do not need a license to work with GUI Editor. All its functions are fully available. It is recommended to license Emulator in GUI Editor.

Emulator is a program built in GUI Editor. It allows you to see how your project will work on the control panel. Emulator can work without a license but it won't be able to communicate with the controlled equipment.
Only the graphic part of the project can work without the license. The driver part of the project and feedback form scripts are not functional.

On the first stage of work with iRidium it is convenient to use free Trial licenses provided for each registered user.

Open a hyper link or show a page in iRidium like in the web browser?

You cannot do it.
At the moment iRidium does not support the browser function. You can open hyper links in the standard browser of your control panel.

Limiting access to project pages

To limit access to some interface pages use the system of passwords. There are 4 levels of passwords you can give to different categories of users. See more information here.

*.irgl object

*.irgl is an object of iRidium Gallery stored in the directory C:\Users\<User>\Documents\iRidium mobile 2\Settings\Editor\Gallery

Such objects are not meant for adding to GUI Editor directly. If you need to add them in your Gallery just copy the folder in the indicated directory.

PTZ control of IP cameras

Control of position and focus offset of IP cameras is made with the help of the PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) commands. Usually regular GET-requests sent by the HТТР protocol are used.

Thus to implement PTZ control for an IP camera in iRidium you need the AV & Custom Systems (НТТР) river which enables setting up of these commands in the project.

You will require the license for AV & Custom Systems.

What IP cameras work with iRidium?

The important feature of IP cameras when working with iRidium is the possibility of receiving the direct link to the stream video in the MJPG or H.264 formats.

For example, the following cameras have been tested (not all of the models, see camera specifications!): Axis, D-Link, Panasonic, Vivotec,.... See more information here.

Do not choose cameras working via ActiveX, which requires installing the driver on PC. You cannot receive the link to the video from such cameras.

Here is the useful resource where you can see the list of camera manufactures and types of video stream you can receive from cameras:

iRidium mobile is not responsible for your choice of IP cameras (recorder) and does not guarantee compatibility with particular models which haven't been tested by the company. The choice is made at your own risk.
