Password protected views (object generation 4.88)

SCOUT and CODE are more and more used for routine work, often being operated by users not familiar with these software packages. You can protect the configuration against unwanted modifications by setting a global password (main menu: File/Options/Password). This option is available for a long time already.

In complex methods using several views you can now define individual passwords for each view. This way you can avoid every user being able to access every view. A typical scenario would be a measurement system that shows a few control elements in a view for routine measurements, and more details and controls for expert users in an advanced view. If the ‘expert view’ is password protected it can be seen and used by selected users only.
