Defining Labels

You can define labels to use in your system.

To define a label:

  1. Choose System | Labels. The Labels dialog box will display.
  2. Enter a Label Name of 128 characters or less. Whenever this name is used (i.e,. in Cicode or a field), CitectSCADA automatically substitutes the expression below.
  3. Enter an Expression to be substituted for the label (maximum length is 254 characters). You can use a label to substitute a name for an entity or Cicode expression; for instance, when you use the entity (or Cicode expression) in several database records.
  4. Add a Comment (of 48 characters or less).
  5. Click Add to append a new record, or Replace to modify an existing record.
