The Carousel Widget rotates through a series of Industrial Graphics from one window.  This is often desired for an Andon or status-display station with no user interaction.

The Carousel, QRCode_Scanner, and Web_Browser are widgets available in the 2020 R2 release.


Start by embedding the Carousel Widget in a symbol from InTouch WindowMaker.


Next, edit the Widget Properties to add the desired functionality.  Click on the properties button to open the dialog.


The Graphic Names to cycle through are added with a comma separating each.


Configure the Interval to scroll to the next graphic.  The default is five seconds.  There are Autoplay, Background Color, Keyboard, Loop and Pause options as well.
