Two new Wonderware tech notes on GRAccess Toolkit (Tech Note 727 and Tech Note 728)

Wonderware recently released two new, inter-related tech notes on topics related to Wonderware GRAccess Toolkit:

Tech Note 727 “Automating Object Configuration Tasks in the GRAccess Toolkit: Configuring Properties for Analog FieldAttribute” – this Tech Note describes configuring following properties for Analog Field Attribute (named AF_001) of a $UserDefined template using a C# console application: Access Mode to Output, Data Type to Float, Description to Adding description for AF_001 Field Attribute

Tech Note 728 “Using GRAccess Toolkit to Determine Values and DataTypes for a Property” – this Tech Note describes the technique of finding Values and DataTypes for the following items:

  • Desc property of Analog Field Attribute (AF_001) needs to be set to Adding description for AF_001 Field Attribute

The Values and Data Type found after the procedure can be used in your C# code implementation. Using this Tech Note as a guide, you can also find Values and DataTypes for other properties.
