Geo SCADA: Alarm Acknowledge Using Pick Action VBScript Function

Hi everyone!


I want to accept alarms from an alarm list using a VBScript function. I am not able to get the "cookie" value when selecting the row


'Assume for this purpose that strAlarmSource is fullname


     strAlarmSource = Mimic.Layers(strLayerName).Item(strListName).CurrentRowSource 

     objAlarm = Server.FindObject(strAlarmSource)



and then when using the method "objAlarm.Interface.Accept" it would accept all active alarms on that object. Is there any way to select a row in an alarm list and get a reference to the Alarm Instance and not the object or "Alarm Source".


Thank you in advance!

I think it's a little complicated there.

  strAlarmSource = Mimic.Layers(strLayerName).Item(strListName).CurrentRowSource

  objAlarm = Server.FindObject(strAlarmSource)



The objAlarm item there is really the Alarm Object (CAlarmObject)

And hence the Accept will 'Acknowledges all alarms associated with the object'


So somewhat painfully, you'd ideally want to access the CAlarm itself instead of the Alarm Object.
