The PI-ServerPickList Control

A PI-ServerPickList control consists of a dropdown list of all PI Servers in the Known Servers Table. All servers displayed above the line are connected; all servers displayed below the line are disconnected. If there is only one server in the list, the line is not displayed. You may configure the control to establish a connection to a server when it is selected.

Note: the managed code PI Server pick list is mentioned here and provides similar functionality; Managed controls and dialogs.
