SimpleTagProviderExample edits to add tags in the designer?

#1

I’ve installed the SimpleTagProviderExample module for Ignition 7.9 and was wondering if there’s a way to manually add tags in the designer after the module’s installed. Leaving the module as it is returns the message “This tag provider does not allow manually adding tags.” If so, would this still be handled in the Gateway’s hook?

Would this even be possible in a simple tag provider, or should I be looking into methods using the “com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway.sqltags.providers” instead of “com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway.sqltags.simple”?

Sorry for the frequent posts, but since the simple tag provider is more limited, what is a good place in the API to start writing a realtime tag provider?

Sorry, we have no documentation or examples for this, and I doubt that will change any time soon.

There’s javadocs from 7.9 available here and for 8.0 here

The interface and everything else about the system changed significantly for 8.0.
