I’m pretty new to the platform, and I’m sure missing something simple in creating a chart template I can then use across the project referencing different tags. I’ve had no issues doing this with individual tags, but am missing something when looking to link data sets as opposed to live tag values. Each chart will ultimately have up to 9 items graphed, but for the sake of simplicity I’ve started with one (though from the process below, I can’t see how I’d do >1 this way).
Set up the template
Added a template parameter (Temp1) with the Type as Dataset, Drop Target checked
Added an Easy Chart
Here’s where I may be going amiss
In Tag Pens I’ve bound that under Property to the Temp1 parameter as you’d do, for example, with an LED Display
It seems happy enough with that so I drag it into a window
From there I go to Template Properties and link it to a tag history, but it’s losing the date reference and in general isn’t working.
I’ve created charts in windows with indrect tags for dropdowns, but in my limited use, don’t see how to incorporate this approach into a template.
Any help or tutorials is greatly appreciated.
