I have a tag with a custom property defined. How do I access the tag’s custom property via scripting?
For instance, I have a tag called
Output with the custom tag
enableLogging. How would I access this property in a script, say a value change script?
tag.enableLogging.value? If so, custom property names are allowed to have spaces, how would this work with spaces?
system.tag.readBlocking(['path/to/tag.propertyName']). You probably shouldn’t name them with spaces if you need to read them from scripting, though.
That’s what I figured. So, from the tag event script value changed scope, I should be able to use
tag.propertyName.value, correct? or, just
def valueChanged(tag, tagPath, previousValue, currentValue, initialChange, missedEvents):
Fired whenever the current value changes in value or quality.
tag: The source tag object. A read-only wrapper for obtaining tag
tagPath: The full path to the tag (String)
previousValue: The previous value. This is a "qualified value", so it
has value, quality, and timestamp properties.
currentValue: The current value. This is a "qualified value", so it has
value, quality, and timestamp properties.
initialChange: A boolean flag indicating whether this event is due to
the first execution or initial subscription.
missedEvents: A flag indicating that some events have been skipped due
to event overflow.
I think just
Where would errors/messages from this script be visible?
You should see them in the tag diagnostics (an icon in the top right corner if you’re on 8.1.17+):
But with two properties I was able to read them directly off the
tag object in the event script:
Thanks. I was also able to find it on the gateway here:
