Displaying current date-time value in PI Vision

Hi Everyone,

 

I was just wondering if it is possible to display the current date-time in PI Vision.

 

I've tried looking online for any way to do it, but I've only seen threads mentioning it can only be done in PB displays by creating a shape and setting a VB code to display the time.

 

We've also tried creating an attribute and setting the data reference as a string builder with %Time% as its value to display the time. The problem is when we display that attribute to our PI Vision Display, it does not refresh / move. It does not change its value real time, thus not aligning with the clock.

 

Is there any other way we could approach this issue?

 

Thank you!
