' Ramp tank level from 0 to 100 in steps of five, with a delay

' on 100ms between each set.

sub main()

   Dim MyPoint as new Point       'Declare the point object

   MyPoint.Id ="TANK_LEVEL"      'Set the Id

   for I = 0 to 100 step 5        'Loop in steps of 5

      MyPoint.SetValue = I        'Set and write value to CIMPLICITY

      Sleep 100                   'Sleep 100ms

   next I                         'Loop

end sub
