Hello,
How to rotate a object in design time in visualzation. Normally other software will have the options of Rotate right.Rotate left,Rotate 90,180,270 Options.Is there any options like that available in codesys like that. I can't find any tools like that.

Hello

To rotate an objet you have to use the propertie : absolute movement -rotation.
If you write 100, the objet will rotate clock wise.
The rotation center is the small white cross in a black circle, you deplace. A line will turn around the center, a rectangle will move around the center while remaining horizontal.
To rotate a rectangle and the text inside, use the propertie : internal rotation.

Try properties :D

in design time you can not rotate an object, old item).
in running only a polygon can be rotated.
a rectangle can not be rotated in running.

Hi,

since CODESYS V3.5 SP4 you can now rotate every object.

In the category "Absolute Movement" there is now a new option "inner rotation". If you choose this you can rotate every object, even BMPs.

Hello,
I may be missing something here, but I don't see the "Interior Rotation" for an image, despite running 3.5.9.4 or even 3.5.10.

Is there a trick to get the "Interior rotation" field shown?

I also don't see the option for "internal rotation" in 3.5.11.
Anyone have any tips on how to make the "internal rotation" option appear for objects other then a polygon?

This depends on the device you are using. If you don't see it for the specific device you are using I would check the device description file used for it. I have been able to get this option to show up and work on devices if you uncomment lines in the device description. What you are looking to uncomment is shown in the picture then you will need to reload the device description:

Have you had any problems on devices that didn't support rotation out of the box?

I have only used it on CrossControl and Eaton products and haven't had an issue. The one thing I have had to look out for was if i'm rotating object(s) a lot, simulating smooth animation, with fast cycle times the CPU load can become pretty high so the system starts to become less responsive.

I did also run into a device that doesn't have those lines in the device description and added them to it and it worked.
