More flexibility in creating tagnames via substitution parameters

score 1
You have not voted Submitted

The substitution parameters are fairly limited and sometime users faced with naming the elements and attribute names or descriptions just to match a tagnaming structure.

Propose:

1) Adding a "short name" to elements and attributes that will not be exposed to clients but then could be use in tagname substitution   [%ElementShortName%]

(Simplest example - tags named Tk101_Flow.PV but desired element name is Tank 101)

 

2) Also add ability parse via regular expression substitution parameters; this would add great flexibility.
