You can type various IDEAL commands at the command line to open the Document Viewer Interface.  In the Document Viewer Interface, you can generate documents starting from:

  • a tag list for a specified loop.

  • a document list for a specified tag number.

  • a list of strips for a specified panel.

The software uses the following general command syntax:

<Home folder>\apitools.exe <Domain ID>, <Plant ID>, <Area ID>, <Unit ID>, l/c/p, <Loop ID>/<Component ID>/<Panel ID>, <Project ID>, <Database Name>

where the phrases in brackets represent the following parameters:

  • <Home folder> — The folder where the IDEAL components were installed.

  • <Domain ID> — The ID of the domain where the item is located.

  • <Plant ID> — The ID of the plant or equivalent highest level plant hierarchy item.

  • <Area ID> — The ID of the area or the equivalent plant hierarchy item immediately above the lowest level.

  • <Unit ID> — The ID of the unit or equivalent lowest level plant hierarchy item.

  • l/c/p — The flag for the item type for which you want to display data, where l = loop for displaying a list of tag numbers, c = component (tag number) for displaying a list of tag documents, and p = panel for displaying a list of strips.  You must type one of these flags only.

  • <Loop ID> — The ID of the selected loop where the flag for the item type is l.

  • <Component ID> — The ID of the selected tag number where the flag for the item type is c.

  • <Panel ID> — The ID of the selected panel where the flag for the item type is p.

  • <Project ID> — The ID of the engineering project to which the item belongs, if applicable.  This parameter is only required when you are working in an owner operator domain.  For As-Built, the value of this parameter is 1.  This parameter is not required for an engineering company domain, unless you are working in a multi- database environment and want to use the <Database Name> parameter, in which case this parameter must have a value of 1.

  • <Database Name> — The name of the database profile to which the item belongs, if you are working in a multi-database environment.  The value for this parameter is a profile name that appears in the INtools.ini file under the [Profiles] section.  When specifying this parameter, you must also enter a value for the <Project ID> parameter.
