Find and replace/update tag names using PI Vision Display Utility
The PI Vision Display Utility should be able to find and replace PI Points and AF Attributes by name.
A situation where this could be necessary is as follows:
1. A PI Vision display was built for using PI Points from a certain data source
2. A new data source, possibly a new instrument, is added to read the same process data. The old data source is taken offline.
3. To keep data separate between different instruments, new PI Points are created for the new data source. New AF Attributes referencing the new PI Points would also be created for similar reasons.
Currently to update the PI Vision displays with the new PI Points one has to go through each display and replace all instances of the old point with the new point.
We need this implemented to do updates for tags that are replaced with new tags.
Useful for Displays for Less Knowledgeable Users when changing Data Sources or PI Point Names.
