    Using more than one context in one display

    Eiko Willemsen

      Hello,

       

      I'm working on a project where we realy want to use Processbook and element relative displays.

       

      I'm talking about a lot of levels where the same display should be used to show parent and child attributes in the same display.

       

      The AF structure looks like this:

       

      Building 1
             |
             ----- Unit 1
                         ---- Meter1
                         ---- Meter2
             ----- Unit 2 
                         ---- Meter1
                         ---- Meter2
      Building 2
             |
             ----- Unit 1
                         ---- Meter1
                         ---- Meter2
             ----- Unit 2 
                         ---- Meter1
                         ---- Meter2

      Every meter has a number of attributes but also the units have attributes
      In the display there is an overview of a unit with meter 1 and meter 2.
      With an element relative display I can switch between the meter 1 and meter 2 and the values of the attributes are changing.
      However if I want to show the values of the Unit attributes I cannot use the element relative values but I have to use tags if I want to get the values.
      I also want to be able to use the same display for Building 2.

       

      Is there any way to show both levels of an element relative display using a minimum of code ?

       

      When using the Unit as element, Can I programmatically change the element relative context path of the child values?

       

      Or Is there a way to create a subDisplay with a different context?

       

      Regards,
