How can we improve PI DataLink?

Create a programmatic access layer

Customers have been using DLResize in the VBA pidldialogs.xla project which is unsupported. It would be nice to create a programmatic access layer so that things such as DLResize can be done in a supported way. It would also be helpful to have programmatic access to automatic update settings and automatic update on/off button.

To clarify the previous status, programmatic access to the functionality provided by DLResize and DLSelect from pidialogs.xla is available using ResizeRange and SelectRange beginning in PI DataLink 2014. For details, please see KB01035:

However, programmatic access to the automatic update settings or button has not been implemented.
