    Example of creating Ad Hoc trend by selecting point from embedded list

    This sample program is intended to demonstrate one or more programming functions or methods and is presented as programming example only. Schneider Electric assumes no liability for the use or application of this example program or any portion thereof.

    This example shows how to use TrendSpec to trend a point selected from an embedded list.  

    In this example, an embedded list named "PointList" is located on a mimic layer named "Layer1" and displays a list of all Advanced Analog Modbus points with Historic enabled. The embedded list is configured to use the following SQL query:


    The below mimic script is on the same mimic and runs from a Script Pick Action configured for the embedded list. The script reads the value of the selected row in the embedded list, retrieves the information about the point in the selected row and uses TrendSpec to create an Ad Hoc trend for the selected point.
    Sub AdHocTrendExample
    Dim showTrend, sTrendProperties, sTraces, sYAxis, sXAxis, sTrend
    Dim RowID, RowValue, SQLQuery, SQLQueryRow
    showTrend = False
    'Get the Object ID of the selected point from the embedded list. 
    RowID = (Mimic.Layers("Layer1").Item("PointList").CurrentRowID)

    'Get the full name of the selected point from the database based on the Object ID of the selected point.
    Set SQLQuery = Server.Query("SELECT FullName FROM CDBPOINT WHERE ID = " & RowID)
    'Assign RowValue to hold the full name of the selected point. This variable is going to be used later in the code.
    If Not (SQLQuery.Error) Then
    SQLQueryRow = SQLQuery.Rows
    RowValue = SQLQueryRow(0,0)
    msgbox ("Error retrieving the value")
    End If

    'Let the user know the full name of the selected point. This line is optional.
    msgbox ("You have selected " & RowValue & " to trend")
    'Use TrendSpec to generate an Ad Hoc trend. The value of the RowValue variable is used to pass the selected point's full name.
    sTrend = "SCX:////Trend/TREND("
    sTrendProperties = "Title = '" & RowValue & "',"
    sTrendProperties = sTrendProperties & "TitleColour = RGB(50,50,50),"
    sTrendProperties = sTrendProperties & "TitleFontStyle = FontStyleBold),"
    sXAxis = "XAXIS(RelativeNow, Position=Bottom,"
    sXAxis = sXAxis & "Colour = RGB(50,50,50)),"
    sTraces = "TRACE(ProcessedHistoric,'Y Axis 1',"
    sTraces = sTraces & "SOURCE('" & RowValue & "',XOffset = 0,"
    sTraces = sTraces & "YOffset = 0, Multiplier = 1),"
    sTraces = sTraces & "Label = '" & RowValue & "',TraceStyle = TraceLine,"
    sTraces = sTraces & "Interval = 200, PointLimit = 50,"
    sTraces = sTraces & "ExtendToNow = True,"
    sTraces = sTraces & "LineColour = RGB(50,50,50),"
    sTraces = sTraces & "LineStyle = DashSolid," 
    sTraces = sTraces & "LineWidth = 4, MarkerStyle = Diamond,"
    sTraces = sTraces & "MarkerLimit = 250, MarkerSize = 2),"
    sYAxis = "YAXIS('Y Axis 1',Label = 'Point Value',"
    sYAxis = sYAxis & "LabelPos = Centre,LabelStyle = Normal,"
    sYAxis = sYAxis & "Position = Left,ScaleType = Range,"
    sYAxis = sYAxis & "Invert = False,ShowGrid = True,"
    sYAxis = sYAxis & "Format = '%23%23.%23%23%23',"
    sYAxis = sYAxis & "Colour = RGB(50,50,50)),"
    'Display the Ad Hoc trend by setting the showTrend flag to True
    showTrend = True
    If showTrend = True Then
    sTrend = sTrend & sTraces
    sTrend = sTrend & sYAxis
    sTrend = sTrend & sXAxis
    sTrend = sTrend & sTrendProperties 
    End If
    End Sub
