What does the asterisk in the tooltip mean?
It looks like it indicates that the value you're displaying is coming from the SYSTEM Digital Set
Thanks Taylor. Do you know if this is documented somewhere?
I haven't been able to find this logged anywhere. I spotted the difference when I dragged a handful of digital tags to a display, I became aware that only those with digital states from the SYSTEM state table (either intentionally, or unintentionally, eg 'IO TIMEOUT') were showing the asterisks
I was playing around with this on my system and it looks like the asterisk refers to a time context. When I change the end time range of the display, the asterisk changes to the new end time. I haven't found this documented anywhere, but I suspect it's related to how the PI SDK handles tags that use the SYSTEM digital set.
