The IGetPoints2 interface is a secondary interface supported by objects in the Applies To list. The interface has one method, GetPoints2, which allows the caller to obtain a PointList collection containing PIPoint objects from multiple servers with a user defined collection of returned point attributes.
The main new feature in this interface is the ability to return selected point attributes along with the point collection. This will make the call slower but users who need to retrieve multiple attributes will benefit from this call (interfaces, Web pages etc.).
This interface redirects the calls to the enhanced versions of the internal GetPoints and GetPointsSQL methods of the current Server object. The publicly available versions of these methods remain as they were in PISDK 1.3.1, the enhanced features are only available via this interface.
