Value multistate in asset comparison table
Add the ability to add multistate to asset comparison table. This should utilize the limits attributes defined in system explorer similar to radial gauges and bar symbols. It could be the back ground or the value that multistates. This would be a great method to provide a dashboard of a large number of process values and quickly identify which values are out of a desired range.
The ability to multistate values displayed in an asset comparison table was added in PI Vision 2017 R2.
Although the asset comparison tables already allow multi-state, there are many limitations that would still need to be improved upon for this to work.
1. It would be nice to have multi-state on regular data tables as well as asset tables
2. The limits should be able to be different for selected cells, rather than applied to everything in the column. In data tables, each row should be able to have different limits or have multi-state on or off independently.
This would be a great feature for creating an alarm dashboard - currently I'm manually dragging the gauges in and their placement in the table moves depending on what monitor you're using.
Actually - want the ability to set multistate behavior on a attribute column based on another asset value - similar to Value, gauge and drawing symbols. If this can be done - should be able to do it as well for attribute columns which are strings. I would think it is based on a cell in a table at that point.
