Details

The .NET controls included with InBatch are frequently embeded in an ArchestrA graphic to provide a programming or user interface.  These .NET controls expose their properties, methods, and events when their associated ArchestrA graphic is dropped on a window in InTouch.  The .NET controls are installed in InBatch as a part of the InBatch Components for ArchestrA IDE. They do need to be imported into the Integrated Development Environment (IDE).  Select Galaxy | Import | Client Controls from the menu of the IDE.  Browse to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Wonderware\InBatch\AppObjects folder to select IBGuiControls.Net.dll.  Click the Open button.
