We have an AF structure defined in the 'PI system Explorer'. We access this data using the AF-SDK.
One of the elements we are interested in is 'AFElement.Attributes.DataReference.ConfigString'.
It should contain the information of a PI Point linked to an attribute.
However, we see that not the correct information is returned in this scenario:
- Start situation:
- Using 'PI System Management Tools', we rename the PI Point
- After restarting 'PI System Explorer', this change becomes visible (even on a different machine)
- When debugging, we see that the rename is not effected, but we want to see same result as 'PI System Explorer' shows:
A workaround is to redo a check-in in 'PI System Explorer'. However, this is not always possible, since we are also working with old data.
Is there a different way to get the correct renamed ConfigString?
