I am working on upgrading an existing application to Ignition.
I have a high number of Boolean Tags which I would like to set up Alarming on. These tags have been exported out of the old system, manipulated in excel and imported into Ignition.
I would like to be able to show the “Tag Name” as the “Label” binding and “Tag Meta Documentation” as the “Display Path” binding in the alarm configuration.
Now this is simple enough to do manually, but since there is a high number (400+), what would be the best approach to achieve this efficiently?
I have unsuccessfully tried a few things. The main one being renaming the tags with a general convention like Alarm1, set up a UDT, and pass in a parameter which is used in an indirect tag binding for the above properties - I have a feeling you are not able to use an indirect tag binding in an expression?
If there’s one thing I have learnt picking up Ignition, there is always a way, so I thought I would ask you guys.
Thanks for the help.
