Use Alias Names as Tag:Link in text element


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way that I could use the Alias name of an I/O tag, as a text variable?

What I would like to do, is create  screens that display the status of connected I/O.

The status would be indicated by a binary image element.

Beside the indicator element, I would like to have a text box that I could link to the Alias name of the respective I/O.

That way, if/when I/O Alias names change, the associated text boxes, on the I/O Status screens, would change accordingly.

If there is no way to currently do such a thing, perhaps the almighty creators would consider making it possible in future releases.

Hi Dave,

in my opinion this is a good request...because, I think, all of us have one or more debug pages about the I/O status (also to force the output as test)...and always I have to manually write the "name" of the I/O that usualy is the same, or can be, as usedin the "alias".
