3.3. Set up Points to be Seen from a Viewer

Use the following techniques to make sure the viewer can locate the projects for each point.

Fully qualify all points.


Fully qualifying all points used on the screen takes some up front planning when the screens are being created.  It has the advantage that you can have a single screen viewing points from multiple projects and does not require any special shortcuts to launch the screen.

The fully qualified points will use the project indicated in the point ID.

Use a /project command line option to open the screens from a short cut.


The /project command line option will specify the project to use for any unqualified points.
