Building in Symphony Plus graphics

1. Extract your database(s)

To build Symphony Plus (S+) (and also PGP) graphics into your project, we first recommend extracting your S+ or PGP .DBF or .XLS database.

2. Add your database(s) to BuildPlus

Add the database(s) to your project's database specifications; if this is a new project then the database specifications will be the first dialog window opened, otherwise you should restart the build from the Go button or from Build->Database Specification.

3. Add your graphics to the BuildPlus Wizard

Proceed through your build until you reach the configuration wizard, at which point you can mark the checkbox for Symphony Plus or PGP graphics, and you may select any other files to be included in the build. You may be prompted to specify where your S+ graphics are located. Generally, for Symphony Plus you should choose C:\ProgramData\ABB Symphony Plus\Operations\SV1.0\display. There are two folders within that you may wish to build in:

With that in mind, you should choose one or the other: point towards the bin folder to see the currently running system reflected in your M14, or the work folder to preview how your system will be once those changes are applied.

4. Confirm Database-Graphics Associations

These associations may be made automatically by BuildPlus or else the Database-Graphics Association dialog will open. Alternatively, when the dialog to Run Project Options appears, you may choose to edit settings now. In Project Options, navigate to the Database-Graphics Association tab, by clicking the tab or using Alt D. Ensure your graphics are associated with the correct tag database(s).
