Alerting indication for a new alarm

I am trying to create a generic indication on a graphic screen when there is a new unack alarm. Is there a tag or function that can generate a true/false result for a new unack alarm?

Using the scripting function system.alert.queryAlertStatus this can be achieved. You can find more information on this function in the user manual … status.htm

Additionally, you can look at an example in the project templates.
