How do we tackle Active X / Windows Common Controls (ex. Flexgrid, Calendar Control. etc) within processbook in PI coresight? Also, custom VBA scripts were written to customize their functionality. How will those be handled in CoreSight?
No, you won't get any VBA at all.
Custom controls in ProcessBook won't be exported to Coresight, neither will VBA code.
If you need the functionality these things provided you'll have to design your display from scratch in PI Coresight (2016) and provide the custom functionality through custom symbols for Coresight. You'll find a step-by-step and documentation here: https://github.com/osisoft/PI-Coresight-Custom-Symbols
Thanks Asle. Just to reconfirm, it's not ALL VBA script but script which involves Active X controls. Am I correct?
Seeing that Coresight Extensibility was mentioned a word of warning is in order. CS Extensibility is still CTP (Client Technology Preview) and the extensibility model will change in the medium term future (2-3 years according to the post from Tom LeBay).
