[Imported] Locating table for animation strings within mimics.

I am wondering if anyone is aware of a table in the schema which contains the strings stored in each mimic objects animation properties.

Mimic content is not available via the schema, as far as the server is concerned (schema is server side) its a blob that only the client end (e.g. ViewX or WebX) knows how to interpret.

So, what are you trying to do? There are two ways I can think of that you can get that info programatically.

1. Use the ViewX automation interface, undocumented (even worse given we lost all the old forum content that semi-documented it), unstable and fairly slow, but works. Allows you to loop through mimics as objects, but as its slow be careful when wanting to process multiple mimics (i.e. all the system's mimics).

2. Use old WebX (i.e. the one hosted by DBServer, not IIS), when you display a mimic it'll have ?applet in the URL, change it to ?content and you get the mimic content as XML. Really fast, easy to parse with the info in you need.

New IIS Web might have something, it does have a RESTful interface (also undocumented and so unsupported), I've never tried.

Hmm undocumented also like the bulkedit tool. cannot seem to find any help on the help interface for this.

I was wanting to extract the animations to cover over 150 sites to ensure a particular point had been consumed in the logic of the animation. instead of checking each site that is not referencing a template or has a property override.

The Bulk Edit tool has a user manual in the start menu.

Things I can think of that might be helpful.
It basically reads the Schema to let you edit the object properties. So you can refer to the Schema.

You have to know the numbers, that represent the text, you have configured for the Alarm Severity since those can be anything you want and the bulk edit tool does not access the registry where those are saved. Refer to the Server Configuration if you don't remember those.

Any Metadata fields you add shows up in it but it will not know what you made that for.

It does have some quirks, like the Alarm Redirection ID requires you to enter the Full name of the Alarm redirection not the ID Number.

Any problems you have with the Bulk Edit tool and/or its documentation you should contact support and request they be fixed/updated.
