[CONNECT Update 16] Write a CONNECT Report for Tag data

I want to write a Report for tag data.  So far, so good...

Report Tags

That reports tag data, but not where they come from. We need to know what the tag belongs to, otherwise it's hard to make sense of the Report.

How do I include the ID of the host element (the element to which the tag is attached) in that report?

  • Hi Jon

    Does adding a Column picking up on Element ID work for you? 

    Simple Testcase:

    In the Report Definitions Properties, I selected the Object Types Ellipses,Lines,Shapes (elements with Tags attached in the design) to be reported on and added the 'Tag Instances'  as related object.

      

    Then added a column 'Element ID' picking up on Elements > Raw Data > Element ID

    Previewed Report

    Thanks: that almost works.  Using your suggestion I can create this Report...

    Tag Report

    That shows the host element ID but the value of only one tag instance (each host has 2 tags attached: tag01 and tag02).  How do I instruct the Report to show all tag instances attached to a host element?


    Looking forward to the next level of difficulty, what happens when we have more than one Tag Set attached to an element?  Can we filter the Report results using the Tag Set name?
