Job Display


Job Display with different Subdisplays

The Job Display shows visualizations and results of a job. The JobDisplay consists of a title bar, the Toolbar and a display area.

The display area shows a View of the selected ToolGroupItems of the current or last job execution. If a UserView has been specified for the currently logged on user, this will appear. Otherwise, the default view of the ToolgroupItem is displayed.

The Job Display shows images and results of a job. Background color of title bar and toolbar are colored depending on the result:


IO Result


Warn result


NIO Result


Training run


No evaluation yet

If several jobs or job displays are shown, a display can be maximized with a double click on the title bar.

Live Mode Settings

If displays are to continuously pull in and display camera images in live mode, they must be linked to Image sources. The settings dialog is opened via a toolbar button of the job-display.

  1. The list shows the available live image sources with their respective displays. Continuous image acquisition and display in live mode only take place if the image source is activated by the Use check box.

  2. Button click refreshes the displayed image source list, depending on the selection in the dropdown:

    • List used in Run displays image sources from the ToolGroupItem level.

    • List of Jobs displays image sources from the Job level.

  3. Button click assigns the currently selected image source in the list to the selected display from the dropdown.

  4. For live capture, you can activate whether the light situation of the Job layer should be used for image acquisition if no light situation is set directly in the source. If the option is deselected and no lighting situation is assigned to the image source, live images are drawn in with the currently active lighting situation without changing it.


If the lighting situation is set to job level and the Try to use lightsituation of Job option is deactivated, processes can be passively observed with a display in live mode without affecting the lighting situation.

Load images via drag & drop

One or more image files can be loaded from Windows Explorer by dragging and dropping them onto the title bar. Run BV on display image in the Toolbar will then evaluate exactly these images. This feature is especially useful if the images were saved with other applications and the filenames do not follow the Viper.NET convention for input-images.
