Thread: SystemModelGroup for variable

    Default SystemModelGroup for variable

    Hi All

    I'm using zenon v 7.11.
    Is it possible to get a property of variable "SystemModelGroup" in Runtime with VSTA?
    This property is existing in DynProperties of variable but I can't get its value or text.

    Best regards,

    what you should get from the DynProperty SystemModelGroup is a string of semicolon separated Guids.
    These Guids you can also find in the Equipment Model structure of the project.

    See attached *.txt file (rename it to *.cs or copy the content)/helper classes which parses the equipment model structure of the project and returns a dictionary of Guids and the readable values.

    The only thing left you need to do is then to resolve the Guid from your variable with the Guid from the dictionary, with a function like below:
    private String GetEquipmentGroupStringByGuids(String pEquipmentGroupGuids)
          if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(pEquipmentGroupGuids))
            return String.Empty;
          //Separate the Guids, store in array
          String[] equipmentGroupGuidArray = pEquipmentGroupGuids.Split(';');
          String equipmentGroupString = String.Empty;
          //Iterate through the array
          int index = 0;
          foreach (string guid in equipmentGroupGuidArray)
            //Get the equipment group string for the given guid
            String currentEquipmentGroupString;
            equipmentGroups.TryGetValue(new Guid(guid), out currentEquipmentGroupString);
            //If the equipment group can be found (not deleted in zenon)
            if (currentEquipmentGroupString != null)
              //Add ";" before each substring (exclude first one)
              if (index > 0)
                equipmentGroupString += ";";
              equipmentGroupString += currentEquipmentGroupString;
          return equipmentGroupString;
