When building an Element Relative ProcessBook display can I reference attributes in parent elements and/or child elements or am I limited to attributes in the Element of Interest only?
Hi Pi Support. Yes you can, Try:
E...\|ParentAttribute and or E..\GrandChild|GrandChildAttribute where the elements of interest are 'Child1..3'
Parent attributeGrand-Child Element Attribute
(I like pictures)
Keep in mind the whole conundrum about multiple parents (but that's another story)
Hey PI Support Group,
Just to add to Rob's answer above. There's also the possibility of using attributes with a String Builder data reference to retrieve attribute values of elements that are elsewhere on the hierarchy. Of course, this would require creating those attributes in AF.
For this simple use case, Rob's answer is the best approach.
