Hi all, is there a way to read/write by scripting the engineering limits for a tag? system.tag.getConfiguration doesn’t give those informations, and for the writing part? Maybe i can use system.tag.configure, but how to configure the tag with my customized limits?
You can just directly write to the sub property of the tags; if you only need to update a single value, that’s probably the easiest way:
Perfect, many thanks
I’d like to manipulate even other sub properties, are those sub properties documented? or is there a way to know the sub properties names?
The tag property page in the documentation (here) should help.
Don’t know how I couldn’t find it, thank you!
Also, in 8.0.3+ they should just be listed, so you can expand a tag in the tag browser, then right click -> Copy Path. Works for UDT parameters, too.
Just installed the RC2, that’s great! many thanks for the support
Thank you PGriffeth…
Not the same at all, but do you know why I can write to the engineering properties, but not historyEnabled. Through the mqtt engine via sparkplugB?
Nope, but it’s going to depend a lot on your Ignition version and your version of the MQTT modules.
