Align to Center

This perticular alignment function is to align to a center of circle:

Figure 2-32 Align to Center

This button is to align the centers of circle for two and more widgets that have the center of circle (for example, circular gauge and rotation image). Users can group two or more widgets that have the attribute of center of circle and align these centers to a same center of circle automatically.

Note: ADE will align widgets to the first widget that is dragged to the design area.

For example, there are two widgets (circular scale and rotation image) in the HMI design panel:

Figure 2-33 Align to Center Example 1

First, let’s select these two widgets and thn press “Align to Center” button, then the centers of circle of these two widgets will align at a same point. This button is to prevent the mis-alignment caused by manual adjustment:

Note: Please refer to Edit Design Panel on how to select widgets in the design panel.
