We would like to have a shape Blink when polling is active (Element State is Active). We are able to have the Visio shape display the current State using the Info shape data. However, when we try to add a shape manipulation (Blink) to the shape nothing happens.
We have tried using the following Visio shape data with no luck:
Element: [this element]
Info: State|Blink;=Active (also tried as ;=1)
We also tried:
Blink: <A>-A|Element:[this element]|Info:State|=Active
It's not yet possible to use 'info' data inside shape conditions. Note that this is on the roadmap for 10.0.13.0 though.
Perhaps there is a workaround possible. What is the state of the element when it's not polling data? Is it in time out or is it stopped? If it's the latter, you can use a parameter value inside the condition and make sure it always evaluates to true. Parameter values are only retrieved when the element is active.
Note that I used parameter 65003 which is a parameter that is available for every element. This parameter reflects the number of active alarms.
