ProcessBook: Get  PIProperty value with an absolute path without PISDK calls

Hi everybody!




I´m trying to get the value of a PIProperty to simply display it in ProcessBook. I could do it with PI SDK calls, but then I have to add a new reference (PI SDK something...) which often is a source for errors for the customer.




I know how to get the value of a PI property with a module context relative path (e.g. "Property.|propertyname"), but this is not possible in my case, because my PI property is one level higher in the hierarchy than the other modul contexts, so I want to specify either an absolute path or a path like "myCurrentContext + 1 level up".




Does anyone know a smart way how to deal with this?
