An ArchestrA alarm control is built by embedding the alarm client control in an ArchestrA graphic.  This alarm client control is included as part of the standard Application Server install.  The alarm control provides five unique client modes by setting the ClientMode property.  The embedded control shown below is named AlarmClient1.


Set AlarmClient1.ClientMode = 1 to display Current Alarms.  This display currently active alarms stored in memory.


Set AlarmClient1.ClientMode = 2 to display Recent Alarms and Events.  This displays historical alarms and events stored in memory.


Set AlarmClient1.ClientMode = 3 to display Historical Alarms.  This displays historical alarms stored in the database.


Set AlarmClient1.ClientMode = 4 to display Historical Events.  This displays historical events stored in the database.


Set AlarmClient1.ClientMode = 5 to display Historical Alarms and Events.  This displays historical alarms and events stored in the database.
