CIMPLICITY enables a project developer to create sets of point attributes that use 16 bits and that can be applied to one or more points in a project.
Attribute sets are a powerful tool for aiding in point evaluation.
Create several user defined fields, (attribute definitions) within a set, then
Associate the attribute set with a point. (The same attribute set can be associated with more than one point.), then
Associate your user-defined fields with that point in expressions in:
CimEdit for CimView,
Point Control Panel opened from a CimView screen,
Custom applications making point requests, and
The processes for a machine point called MACH_TEMP are different depending on whether or not a man is online. You:
Create an attribute set call PROC.
Include an attribute field called MOL (man-on-line).
Associate the attribute set PROC with the machine's MACH_TEMP point.
Create a CimView screen object that displays the value of the MOL field.
During runtime, the CimView screen will alert users whether or not a man is online for the point MACH_TEMP provided your application has set the attribute.
View a project's existing point attribute sets.
Create a new point attribute set.
Open an existing Attribute Set dialog box.
