Is there any documentation anywhere that shows some kind of sample of the expected configuration of the different cells in the Pens datasets (DBPens, SQLTag Pens). I would like to use this means to bring in data from my MSSQL database, but I haven’t been able to figure out what all the different cells in each column do. some of them are obvious I get, but it seems that simply adding the basic information to some isn’t quite enough, and I’m struggling to understand which cells need what for each pen/row
Well, to answer your direct question: no, this doesn’t exist as documentation anywhere, unfortunately. The columns are meant to be as self-describing as possible.
Is there something specific you need cleared up?
If you’re still looking for information on the pen configuration, I suggest you download and install the “Click to Graph” Extra Here: http://www.inductiveautomation.com/?wicket:interface=:2:downloadsection:1:downloads:8:downloadfrag:link::ILinkListener::
There is quite a bit of code in there that will at least give examples of how to populate the pen and axis datasets.
Thanks matsons, that’s a good suggestion.
