Having some trouble understanding some basic concepts in regards to event frames. Please chime in or lead me to where I can find these answers:


If I create an Event Frame Template called alertTemplate  that has an attribute called process value which I wanted to know statistics such as avg, min, max...., each statistic would be an attribute? What if I wish to reuse this template where the process value is different(a different alert).Would I need to programically change the attribute property each time or should I have a separate template for each type of alert (say tank 1, tank 2, thickness) ?


I am wondering how the EF template is related to AF elements and attributes. It seems like I am duplicating the AF element with an event frame. Is there way to create an EF template from AF elements?


How will abacus work with AF elements and creating EFs?


Thank you for your responses
