Tag Search Dialog in Custom Web Part

Hello All,


I want to build a PI Tag Search dialog or facility in my own Sharepoint webpart, like the OSIsoft RtTrend. I know there is an API for the desktop application and only need to show the Tag Search dialog by calling that API. However, there are no such thing available for web developing.


I have asked the OSISOFT support, however. They said this will be only avaible in PIWebparts 4.0. However, we cann't wait that long and we want to build a tag search in our own web part.


Any body has any idea about how to implement that efficiently? If I simply loop through all the PI tags, it will not efficient at all.


Thanks in advance.
