I searched for this issue and found this thread, although it looks to be a few years old, and abandoned.
I am storing Threshold values in attribute tags.
For example, I have an attribute named rms_x, which is a measure of vibration on the x axis.
I then have three tags:
static_alert_enabled = true
static_warning_threshold = 2000
static_warning_num = 3
The first turns the alert on/off, the second is the value to be breached, and the third is the number of times it must be aboved that threshold before an alert is fired.
I would like to give the ability to users (maybe only certain ones, but that is future), to see and modify the attribute tag for the static_warning_threshold.
Input Controls seemt o be the way to do that. I seem to be able to do that with a raw attribute like a text field, but once you go that one level deeper into an attribute tag, it doesnt seem to want to show that.
How would I get this behavior? The only way I can think of to do it is to revert back to setting an attribute and using that for my threshold, That means creating minimum of 3 new attributes, per axis (3 axis) for each alert value. We are intending to have a few alert values, a warning, a danger, and then a future dynamically determined one, that would be then 3 Attributes x 3 Axis, x 3 Alert Values, for a total of 27 new attributes to maintain?
