How do I associate an object with a legacy graphic in the Detail widget?

Note: Only objects that support the Graphic attribute and the Graphic Alias attribute can be associated with graphics. To check if an object supports these attributes, go to the Detail widget of the object and verify if Graphic and Graphic Alias are listed. For example, the following objects support graphic association:
  • Field controller
  • Event Enrollment
  • Alarm Extension
  • Objects with Intrinsic Alarming Defined set to True
  • Program (SNC device object)
  • Engine at Release 12.0 or later
  • Server
  • Site
Note: You can associate a supported object with a legacy graphic (Graphics+ graphics and Standard graphics) in the Detail widget. Use the Graphics Manager to associate Metasys UI graphics.
To associate a supported object with a legacy graphic, complete the following steps:
  1. Select a supported object that you want to associate with a graphic.
  2. Open the Detail widget of the object, go to Graphic, and click Click To Add. The Graphic window opens.
  3. Select the required graphic from the All Items tree in the Graphic window.
  4. Click SAVE. When you navigate to the object the next time, the Graphics widget with the graphic you associated displays as the default widget.

How do I remove a graphic association?

  1. Select the object that contains the graphic association you want to remove.
  2. Open the Detail widget of the object, go to Graphic, and click on the hyperlinked object name. The Graphic window opens.
  3. Click CLEAR and click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the currently defined reference.

What is a Graphic Alias and how do I configure the Graphic Alias for an object?

A Graphic Alias indicates a portion of the graphic’s item reference, up to and including the name of the parent object containing this object. This means that the points of the object that you select as Graphic Alias are used to resolve the matching points in your graphic automatically and you do not have to perform explicit bindings.

To configure the Graphic Alias for an object, complete the following steps:
  1. Open the Detail widget of the object, go to Graphic Alias, and click Click To Add.
  2. Click the tree icon to open the Add Item window.
  3. Select the required item.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click the check mark to save your changes.
