About Point Attributes

CIMPLICITY provides you with different types of point attributes that help you evaluate different perspectives of a point's status.

The types of available point attributes are:

User defined




Attributes can be used in expressions in:

Event Editor

CimEdit for CimView

Point Control Panel opened from a CimView screen

Custom applications making point requests

BCE scripts

These attributes can be referenced in many CIMPLICITY applications in the same fashion as a configured point ID.

The general syntax for referencing a point attribute is:

<point ID>.<point attribute>



<point ID>

A normally configured point ID.

<point attribute>

One of the point attributes described in this chapter when you click one of the four buttons above.


You can also use the CIMPLICITY Point browser to select an attribute that is available for a selected point and apply it to the application in which you are working. You can open the Select a Point Browser from any expression field.

Point attributes do not apply to system points .
