Re: how to set the tag to an object in code ?

Hi, Thank you for the reply. I think you missed the question I was trying to ask.

Re: passing tag to screens

Hi, Thank for the reply. I see what you are Saying, unfortunately I can not control the valves from the main screen, too many options per valve.

Re: How to limit the number of characters in a texbox
