Basic Shapes show the status of the bound object. Any basic shape can be bound to either an analog, binary, or multistate object. You can resize these symbols, which include a square, triangle, and circle.

If a basic shape is bound to an analog object, in the View mode, the color of the shape indicates the status of the bound object. White is normal, but other colors are listed. See Status Colors.

If a basic shape is bound to a binary object, in the View mode, the color of the shape indicates the state of the bound object. By default, if the state is 0, the shape is white and if the state is greater than 0, the shape is green. These can be configured by the user when you bind the symbol.

Double click on the shape to display the Focus view for the bound object. Right-click to display the commands.

Tip: Use the circles to depict temperature sensors on a floor plan graphic. Circles and rectangles can be used as status lights.

See the Dynamics: Basic Shapes step section for information on binding basic shapes.
