Syntax
public bool IsAttributeLoaded(
	string name
)

Parameters

name
Type: SystemString
The name of the PIPoint attribute.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
if the PIPoint attribute has been loaded into cache.
Remarks
Examples
// This example demonstrates how to create an attribute for an
// element and retrieve and set PIPoint attributes.

// Get the Database
PISystems myPISystems = new PISystems();
PISystem myPISystem = myPISystems.DefaultPISystem;
AFDatabase myDB = myPISystem.Databases.DefaultDatabase;

// Create an Element Template
AFElementTemplate myElemTemplate = myDB.ElementTemplates.Add("MyElementTemplate");
AFAttributeTemplate myAttrTemplate = myElemTemplate.AttributeTemplates.Add("Attr#1");
myAttrTemplate.DataReferencePlugIn = AFDataReference.GetPIPointDataReference(myPISystem);
myAttrTemplate.ConfigString = @"\\%Server%\%Element%;pointtype=Float64";

// Create an Element from the Element Template
AFElement myElement = myDB.Elements.Add("MyElement", myElemTemplate);

// Create the PIPoint for the Attribute
AFAttribute myAttribute = myElement.Attributes["Attr#1"];
myAttribute.DataReference.CreateConfig();

// Find all PIPoint Attributes and Display their values
object drAttrValue;
myAttribute.PIPoint.LoadAttributes();
IEnumerable<string> list = myAttribute.PIPoint.FindAttributeNames(null);
Console.WriteLine("Found PIPoint Attributes: nameFilter='<null>'");
foreach (string item in list)
{
    drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(item);
    Console.WriteLine("  {0} = '{1}'", item, drAttrValue);
}
Console.WriteLine();

// Find PIPoint Attributes matching 'Ex*' and display their values
list = myAttribute.PIPoint.FindAttributeNames("Ex*");
Console.WriteLine("Found PIPoint Attributes: nameFilter='Ex*'");
int cnt = 0;
foreach (string item in list)
{
    cnt++;
    drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(item);
    Console.WriteLine("  {0} = '{1}'", item, drAttrValue);
}
Console.WriteLine();

// Unload all PIPoint Attributes
myAttribute.PIPoint.UnloadAllAttributes();

// Load specific PIPoint Attributes and display their values
myAttribute.PIPoint.LoadAttributes(PICommonPointAttributes.PointType,
    PICommonPointAttributes.PointID,
    PICommonPointAttributes.Descriptor,
    PICommonPointAttributes.ExtendedDescriptor,
    PICommonPointAttributes.CreationDate);
drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.PointType);
Console.WriteLine("PIPoint Attribute '{0}' = '{1}'.", PICommonPointAttributes.PointType, drAttrValue);
drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.PointID);
Console.WriteLine("PIPoint Attribute '{0}' = '{1}'.", PICommonPointAttributes.PointID, drAttrValue);
drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.Descriptor);
Console.WriteLine("PIPoint Attribute '{0}' = '{1}'.", PICommonPointAttributes.Descriptor, drAttrValue);
drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.ExtendedDescriptor);
Console.WriteLine("PIPoint Attribute '{0}' = '{1}'.", PICommonPointAttributes.ExtendedDescriptor, drAttrValue);
drAttrValue = myAttribute.PIPoint.GetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.CreationDate);
Console.WriteLine("PIPoint Attribute '{0}' = '{1}'.", PICommonPointAttributes.CreationDate, drAttrValue);
Console.WriteLine();

// Set PIPoint Attribute value
string newAttrValue = "New Value: " + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString();
myAttribute.PIPoint.SetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.Descriptor, newAttrValue);
myAttribute.PIPoint.SetAttribute(PICommonPointAttributes.ExtendedDescriptor, newAttrValue);
AFErrors<string> errors = myAttribute.PIPoint.SaveAttributes(PICommonPointAttributes.Descriptor,
    PICommonPointAttributes.ExtendedDescriptor);
if (errors != null && errors.HasErrors)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Errors calling PIPoint.SaveAttributes:");
    foreach (var item in errors.Errors)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("  {0}: {1}", item.Key, item.Value);
    }
}
