HTML-like Alarm Messages


Overview

Beginning in Access It! Universal.NET 5.4.0.12, device alarm messages can now be entered in HTML format. This allows for enhanced customization of how a alarm message is displayed within the Alarms grid.

The new rich text formatting mechanism uses plain HTML tags to display formatted text such as font style, font color, font size options and simple layouts. To turn on Html-like formatting the text must start with an <html> tag. Specifics on HTML tag arguments are outside the scope of this article.
