  4. Change PI Vision's custom symbol load behavior

    Written on behalf of customer.

    Currently all of the extensibility symbols needs to be perfect in order to load at least 1 extensible symbol onto PI Vision.

    This creates a bottleneck in developing the custom symbols for PI Vision because multiple developers cannot work on their symbols.

    Please consider changing the custom symbol load behavior in PI Vision so that it can at least load all the working ones.

  6. Allow custom symbols to draw outside it's boundaries

    When creating a custom symbol like a drop down, the dropdown menu itself is larger than the entire area of the symbol resulting in it being cut off. Provide a way to turn this off so that the symbol can overflow its boundaries if needed.

  9. Custom Symbols - Can limits Always Available with Multistate

    Currently when custom symbols, we only have access to trait limits if the Multistate pain is open.  Would it be possible to make these available all the time when multistate is configured?  Also, can you make the target trait available as well?

  11. Expose traits in dataupdate

    Currently a dataupdate does not indicate if an attribute in the symbol source list is a trait or not. As i want to code functionality to use the traits (and not the attribute names) i would like the dataupdate with metadata to include the attribute properties (and thus including trait 'flags')

  12. Code Behind

    If your users are going to really find this of value, they need (and I) a somewhat easy method to write code behind the web page and can perform special/customer specific tasks... Process Book VBA is long in the tooth.
    Thank you, Daniel Pesch.

  14. List of services that can be injected into Custom symbol/pane

    [Documentation]
    Such information would be greatly helpful to extensibility developers who are willing to expand the capabilities of PI VIsion and boost the adoption of PI Vision.
    Currently it is not exposed to any existing documents or LiveLibrary material so that extensible feature is under-used.

  16. Use PI AF substitution syntax for naming of elements on a display.

    With the new Collections feature in PI Vision it will be critical to keep the names of our elements to a few characters as it will pull the name from its element.
    It would be a great feature to allow the use of AF substitution logic so that I can use an Attribute within the element as a short name which will keep the visual in PI Vision tidy.

  17. Extended Format Options

    Problem-Description:
    Creating several displays with a similar look is very difficult, since the positioning of the objects can only be done manually.

    For each object (e.g. text, image, symbol, ...) only a few formatting options are visible in Coresight.

    Idea:
    In fact for each object there are many more properties which are stored in the CoresightDisplay table (column EditorDisplay) in the PICoresight dabase.

    It would be great if further properties are enabled to be modified in the formatting dialog in Coresight (e.g. position of the object, height and width of the object, ...).
