In WinCC OA you can create data point types and data points also by using the internal script languageCONTROL. Appropriate functions are available for accessing configs for creating as well as configuring them. You can also delete whole data points or individual configuration of them by using scripts.

Because of the online configuration of the system you can execute such processes without stopping the control station.

The essential functions for the script controlled engineering of data points are dpTypeCreate(), dpCreate(), dpCopy(), dpDelete(), dpSet() and dpSetDescription(). For more information on these and other functions forprogram controlled modifying of the data model see chapter Data Point Functions.
