modifying alarm setpoints dynamically

How can I modify the alarm settings for my database points through a control in a Lookout application? For example I have a numeric value being monitored, and H and HH alarm points configured, but I want the operator to be able to modify these through a manual entry (pot, etc.) if necessary.

You cannot change the alarm configured for the object dynamically. However, you can achieve the similar results using a separate Alarm object.

In the Alarm object, the 'Signal' datamember would be your original object you want the alarm on. And for the HIHI, HI, etc., you can specify either contant values or other object like Pots and expressions that evaluate to a numeric value.

Hope this helps.
