    PI Process Book trend

    avin

      Hello, Is there a way in PI ProcessBook to add a trend on an existing trend i.e. adding tags/points to display(plot) on an existing trend

          In your process book display, be in build mode(Tools->Build) and then double click on the trend .You can then perform a tag search and add those to the existing trend.

          You may follow to this video for reference. OSIsoft: Build a Trend v3.2 - YouTube

              Thank You Ramachandran that works, but let me elaborate on what I am trying to do. I want to be able to

              create a trend from points on a display and then drag an additional point from the original display onto the same trend.

              Is that possible on Process book?

                  The operation described is not possible. You may programatically write a VB macro to help you accomplish this kind of behavior using Properties and Methods(such as CurrentTrace and AddTrace) in the Trend Class but this might be a little cumbersome.

                  Refer: "PI ProcessBook Programmer's Reference" from Processbook->Help

                      Thank you so much Ramachandran, I will try to program it on VBA. Also, is there any other resource you can recommend besides the Reference manual? I am fairly new to the PI system

                          Hi Avinash

                           

                          What is the end goal that you are trying to accomplish? (screen grabs might be useful here)

                          Adding a point to an existing trend is straight forward as described in the first reply. Is this process going to be automated across many displays?

                           

                          The reference manual is good resource if you are going the programming route but if you are new to the PI System i would not recommend that you start with this.

                              Identify the "red/blue" points - hover over them in in "Run" mode or double click in "Build" mode (Tools->Run/Build/Run)

                                  

                               

                              Then as described earlier, be in build mode(Tools->Build) .You can then double click on the trend to perform a tag search for that corresponding point (here its "SINUSOIDU") and add it.

                               

                              There is no direct drag and drop available.
