Thought I would poll the community before we attempt to recreate teh wheel - so to speak.
We are mid-implementation with PI, replacing a competitor historian system. This competitor offered a very simple trend tool that could be called via command line, and pop-up a window that trended points for the last 24 hours. Our operators use this to call-up historical trends from our SCADA display.
We have tried a few things to replicate this functionality. We have called coresight which would in turn pull up a dynamic display, but loading up the browser, and coresight is much too slow. We are now working to write our own via the the AF-SDK, but our prototive is VERY basic right now (thus the question).
So, the question is. Have any of you developed a windows forms based trend that you would be willing to share and / or discuss with us as we develop our own solution?
Any help is welcome - thanks!
