Sets a quality Override element for a specified tag to Bad Non Specific.


TagSetOverrideBad(STRING sTag [,INT bSynch [, STRING ClusterName]])


The variable tag name as a string. The name of the tag can be prefixed by the name of the cluster that is "ClusterName.Tag".


An optional boolean argument that specifies whether the command is synchronous (blocking) or asynchronous (non- blocking). If it is specified as synchronous (blocking) the function will wait until the write has completed and returned from the server before further code execution. This parameter is "False", or asynchronous, by default. If you specify this parameter the other parameters need to be explicitly specified.


Specifies the name of the cluster in which the Tag resides. The argument is enclosed in quotation marks.

Return Value

0 (zero) if successful, otherwise an error is returned.

Tag1.OverrideMode = 0;
//The quality of Override element is set to Bad
//The OverrideMode is set to 1 and
//the Field element is copied to the Override element.
//The quality of the Override element is overwritten.
Tag1.OverrideMode = 1;
//The quality is set again to Bad
