Referencing Event Frame Captured Values from within AF

Is it possible to reference an Event Frame's captured value from within AF?


I can reference an Event Frame's attributes using the search feature of the AF PI Point attribute. For example, setting up an AF attribute template to


\\%Server%\%Database%\Eventframes[@Name=%@Similar Name%]|%Attribute%


will return attribute values named the same in the eventframe, with the name in the Similar Name attribute.

However, this only works for PI Points, and it does not use the captured value - it uses the PI point value at the current time frame.


If I use StringBuilder and directly reference an event frame (no attribute value substitution allowed in StringBuilder remember), I get the captured value, not the current value. Similarly using the Formula.
