WinCC SCADA Screen Resolution


Thread Starter


We are doing a project in PCS7. In WinCC we have developed all the screens in a laptop with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800. But the project PC has a resolution of 1600 x 1200. How do I convert all the screen of 1280 x 800 to 1600 x 1200?? We need all the objects in the graphic window also to get rescaled to 1600 x 1200. New some help plz as we are about to commission the project.

Dear Anil,

All you need to do is adjust the resolution in WinCC Explorer's OS Project Editor.

The resolution for a WinCC Project is adaptable and may be changed as per the resolution of the display any time.
Dear Hamza,

I tried this option, but only the graphic windows are getting resized. All the objects inside the graphic window remain as per the old resolution. Which means the objects inside the graphic window are not getting scaled.

You can try this one...
After adjusting the resolution in the os editor, and the graphic window is now 1600x1200, you can just zoom out the window so as to see the entire length of the graphic page. From there, you can just adjust the size of the graphics in balance with the whole graphic page. After you are satisfied with the size, you can simply zoom the page to its original view and edit the remaining works...
Have you used the option of "Adopt Picture"?

Computer properties-->Graphics runtime--Window attribute-->Adopt Picture

If this does not work, then you have to re work all the things for new resolution.
