Thanks for the tipp. I managed to use XPATH to get the values for my Type and Category attributes!

The API, I'm developing for Phoebus is quiet simple. It currently just supports Author, Subject, Type and Category as attributes and the latter two are just lists of values.

That would be a nice feature...

If you are good in parsing HTML you can achieve this feature: when you create a new entry "<elog-URL>?cmd=new", you'll get HTML source code that provides you with all possible attribute choices.

Disclaimer: this only works if you don't use Conditional attributes.

Hey,

I'm trying to integrate the Elog into our SlowControl System (Phoebus/EPICS). As a first step I translated the python library to Java. So writing new Entries and viewing them works.
But for Phoebus, you need a list of the possible values for the attributes. Currently this is done via the config file from Phoebus.

Is there a way to get the values also via a query directly from the Elog?

Cheers,
Florian
