I have need to try to ping a chart recorder and change the properties of an object on a .pdi based on reply to that ping. Essentially I am wanting to show "connected" state of the recorder on a ProcessBook Display. I cannot simply go based off of when tags from the recorder go to PV BAD because that does not always mean the chart recorder is no longer replying to ping. I did a quick search and came back with nothing, if this has been answered before, my sincerest apologies. If it has not, then .... is this possible?
