Preparing a Library 

  • Create a Library in PLCnext Engineer.
  • Note: If you want to publish your Library with a chargeable license, insert the function block LICENSE_STATUS from the "PLCnext Controller" library into your PLCnext Engineer program.
  • Log in to your PLCnext Store account and create a new Library.
    • To create a new Library, go to the "Software Products" tab on your profile and click the Create button. 
    • In the submenu that opens, select "Library".

A new page opens. On this page you have to describe your Library. 

  • Fill in the mandatory fields:
    • "Library Name*" 
    • "Version*" 
    • "Description*"
    • "Support email address*"
Note: The name of the library must be unique within the PLCnext Store.
  • Add an icon.
  • If you want to publish your Library with a chargeable license, write down the Firm Code / Product Code, add the code to the function block LICENSE_STATUS and activate it. 
  • Save your Library as a draft. 
    As long as the Library is saved as a draft, the Library is not publicly visible and is editable for you at any time.
