In developing some custom apps for our PI system, I keep running into the same question, what's the best way to navigate through an AF hierarchy in AF SDK?
As an example, how i'm handling it now, I make a new AFElement myElement, set it equal to AFObject and use the FindObject method, pass in a (previously known) path and then assign that object as AF Element.
From what i've been able to see, there isn't a clear way to Set a new AFElement to the element of another element (IE new AFElement is the child of another element).
The only way I can think to navigate through a hierarchy is to use FindObject and use a previously known path.
If this is it, that's fine, I just wanted to make sure I was using best practices.
