Is there a way to use the Ignition's project default tag provider in my module? Not a provider with the name "default", but the provider that is selected as default under Project Properties.
From what scope (Gateway or Client/Designer) do you need to figure this out?
Ok, with a reference to
GatewayContext, try something like:
String defaultProvider = context.getProjectManager()
Wouldn't I have to hardcode the
projectName this way?
You have to provide one somehow. The default tag provider is defined within the context of a project.
What are you trying to do, exactly?
Is this related to your other post about a tag reading scripting function?
I think I actually have it figured out, at least in my head. But yes, it's related to that other post. So from the client scope I'm sending a remote procedure call (rpc) to the gateway to give me the values of some tags. In that call, I simply have to include the default tagProvider name of the client and that should solve my problem.
The code in the client scope would look something like this:
String tagProvider = context.getDefaultTagProviderName();
List<QualifiedValue> values = rpc.readGatewayTags(tags,tagProvider)
context in this case would be the ClientContext.
How do I get access to the
Vision Client Tags tag browser?
ClientTagManager tagManager = ClientHook.context.getTagManager();
ClientTagProvider provider = tagManager.getDefaultProvider();
But that returns the provider I have set as my default under project properties.
The Vision client tag provider:
- Only exists in the Vision client scope, by definition.
- Doesn't implement modern access methods or the "new" tag interfaces for 8.0+.
- Is always hardcoded to a provider ID of
client as the provider name works. Thanks
