How to reference a parent container

I think this Ignition tip sums up what I’m trying to do: Indirectly bind a component to a tag based on it’s container’s item number. But, rather than give an absolute reference like this

Root Container.pump_status.Pump1.PumpNumber

I want to give a relative reference like this

Parent Container.PumpNumber

Is this possible?

Not really. But the designer’s copy and paste functions will adjust parent-child bindings when pasting entire containers inside another. That has been all I’ve ever needed.

Ok then. I didn’t realise that copy/paste took care of that. If it’s good enough for you, then I don’t think I’ll have any problems with it.

Thanks for the help Phil!
