Status Window

The RTW status window displays information such as the version numbers for RTW and its engines, network status messages, status messages from the data distribution system, as well as other relevant status messages. Any invalid field or record names encountered by the service will also cause a message to be posted to the status window. If you are not receiving the expected real-time data in Microsoft® Excel, check the status window for relevant messages.

Show/Hide Status Window

You can show or hide the RTW Status Window by selecting Vistasource → Info → Show/Hide Status Window. By default, the status window first appears when a real-time RTW request is made. Real-time requests are made with the “rt” and “rtinsert” commands in the RTD function or in the RTW COM server.

The status window will automatically close when no engines are running. An engine will shutdown, if it is not handling any more real-time requests.
System Administrators:
The debug level and display rules for the RTW Status Window can be changed in the Status Window section of the Generic tab of the Rtconfig Editor. See the engine-specific manual in the installation directory for detailed information about the different methods of editing the RTW configuration options.
