Short Name: Alarming.BadStatus.AckType

Requires: Base Development System

Class: Variable Properties

To Use: Create a property.

Gets or sets how the Bad Status alarm for a shared variable is acknowledged. To use this property, you must install the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module.

Note  You can enable alarming only for network-published shared variables.

This property is similar to the Ack Type option on the Alarming page of the Shared Variable Properties dialog box.


0Auto (default)—indicates that LabVIEW acknowledges the alarm when the shared variable value returns to a normal state.
1User—indicates that LabVIEW does not acknowledge the alarm until you acknowledge the alarm, regardless of the alarm state.
2None—is obsolete.
3Each Occurrence—indicates that LabVIEW does not acknowledge the alarm until you acknowledge the alarm. LabVIEW generates a new alarm instance whenever the alarm changes from a normal state to an abnormal state.

If you specify Each Occurrence for this property, LabVIEW may generate a large number of alarm instances before you acknowledge them.
