Animations using Alerts

Is it possible to animate an object in FPMI using the Alert levels of a SQLTags point? Something like, if point A has a high alert standing, colour it red, if it has a low alert standing colour it blue.

Yes, currently you’d do this through SQL query bindings into either the alarm log or alarm status table.

For instance, to get the severity of the current alarm for tag Refrigeration/Zone5/ChillerTemp you would bind an integer (that could drive your color) to this query:

SELECT current_state_severity FROM alarmstatus WHERE point_path='Refrigeration/Zone5/ChillerTemp'

Built in support for this information, via a new tag property on each tag, is already a pending feature request.

Hope this helps,
