Gets the contents of the specified field in the specified alarm record. If calling this function from a remote client, use the MsgRPC() function.
Note: Record numbers obtained from AlarmGetDsp are not valid for this function. Instead use AlarmFirstTagRec() to get the record. This should be called from the server side using MsgRPC.
When the Alarm Server is not in the calling process, this function will become blocking and cannot be called from a foreground task. In this case, the return value will be undefined and a Cicode hardware alarm will be raised.
AlarmGetFieldRec(Record, sField [, nVer] [, ClusterName] )
The alarm record number, returned from any of the following alarm functions:
To store this value, use data type Int in Cicode or Long for variable tags (Long needs 4 bytes).
The name of the field from which the data is retrieved.

The version of an alarm.
If an alarm has been triggered more than once in a given period, the version lets you distinguish between different instances of the alarm's activity.
The version is used in filtering alarms for display. A query function passes a value to this parameter in order to get field information for a particular alarm.
This parameter is not needed when you use AlarmGetFieldRec() for purposes other than filtering. It will default to 0 if omitted.
Specifies the name of the cluster in which the Alarm Server resides. This is optional if you have one cluster or are resolving the alarm server via the current cluster context. The argument is enclosed in quotation marks "".
The alarm field data (as a string).
AlarmFirstTagRec, AlarmNextTagRec, MsgRPC
record = AlarmFirstTagRec(sTag, "", "");
IF record <> -1 THEN
sName = AlarmGetFieldRec(record,"NAME");
sName = "";
