What can I do with the "Multi-State" option?

Although the Help mentions that the "A", "B", "C", "D" & "E" options are "Digital Tags", they are in fact "Digital Expressions". This means that you can put logical expressions in these fields. The following is a "Fill Property" example.

A : AnalogTag > 50
B : AnalogTag > 75
C : AnalogTag > 80
D : DigitalTag

abcd = Dark Blue
Abcd = Light Blue
aBcd = Dark Red
ABcd = Dark Red
abCd = Light Red
AbCd = Light Red
aBCd = Light Red
ABCd = Light Red
abcD = Flashing Red
AbcD = Flashing Red
aBcD = Flashing Red
ABcD = Flashing Red
abCD = Flashing Red
AbCD = Flashing Red
aBCD = Flashing Red
ABCD = Flashing Red

Some other examples of Digital Expressions are as follows

DigitalTag1 AND DigitalTag2
AnalogTag2 > 70 AND (DigitalTag3 OR DigitalTag4)
AlarmTag.ON AND NOT AlarmTag.ACK
