UIShow Launch Standard Application

Does anyone know the strings needed to launch the Jogging view from RAPID?

I tried the method from the Tech Ref manual:

CONST string Name:="tpsviewbackupandrestore.dll";

CONST string Type:="ABB.Robotics.Tps.Views.TpsViewBackupAndRestore";

...

UIShow Name,Type;

i.e.

CONST string Name:="tpsviewjogging.dll"; 

CONST string Type:="ABB.Robotics.Tps.Views.TpsViewJogging";

...

UIShow Name,Type;


 I have also tried the method from a post from 2010 (Lennart H)

CONST string Name:="tpsviewhotedit.dll"; 

CONST string Type:="ABB.Robotics.Tps.HotEdit.TpsViewHotEdit";

...

UIShow Name,Type;

i.e.

CONST string Name:="tpsviewjogging.dll"; 

CONST string Type:="ABB.Robotics.Tps.Jogging.TpsViewJogging";

...

UIShow Name,Type;


Neither, nor other combinations have been successful. All end with 

41664: The typename is invalid for this assembly Description

Task: T_PLP1 The inparameter TypeName is invalid. The typename does not match the assembly.

Status -5

Program Ref /Eax1/rPathAnalysis/UIShow/324


Backup & Restore, Hot Edit, RAPID Data, and others have been successfully launched via RAPID, but not the jogging view. There's even a demo project in the FP SDK App Manual on how to ScreenMaker to launch the jogging view - ... this._launchService.LaunchView(FpStandardView.Jogging,null,false,out this._cookieJog) ... - so I am hoping there's a viable answer.


Any suggestions are welcome!
