    VBA for Playback Toolbar


      Is there a way to control the Playback Toolbar commands with VBA code?


      I would like to set/get all of the Options parameters, Play, Pause, etc.


      I couldn't find anything related to this matter in the PI ProcessBook VBA Language Reference.

          Bernard, the Playback Toolbar is an add-in. Unlike the build in toolbars you cannot access the buttons and simulate a key press like in this thread.

              If all you are looking to do is to change the configuration parameters, they are stored in the %APPDATA%\PISYSTEM\PI-ProcessBook folder in a file called OSIosft.Toolbars.Playback.dll.config .  This file will be empty if you have not gone into the Playback options for the current user, but here's what the v3.3 file looks like with all defaults:

                   <PLAYBACKENDED><![CDATA[1/15/2013 4:00:00 PM]]></PLAYBACKENDED>

                   <DRANGE2><![CDATA[*-4 Hour]]></DRANGE2>


                   <DRANGE3><![CDATA[*-1 Day]]></DRANGE3>
