This function is used in Python Scripting.


Reads the values of each tag in the tag path list. Returns a sequence of qualified value objects. You can read the value, quality, and timestamp from each object in the return sequence. Reading in bulk like this is more efficient than calling read() many times.

tags = ["Tags/T1", "Tags/T2", "Tags/T3", "Tags/T4", "Tags/T5"]

for x in range(len(tags)):
print "%s = %s" % (tags[x], values[x])
