One of the most powerful features in ClearSCADA is the possibility to use Templates and Instances.
When using this feature, it is common the need to filter alarm lists so each instance will show only alarms from within the instance itself.
This can be done by setting the "Filter" property of the embedded alarm list object properly.
On the template, double click on the embedded list object and click on "Animations":

Add the following expression to the "Filter" property:
'Source="' + ".FullName" + '.*"'

Please note the syntax, that includes a mix of single and double quotes.
You may want to import the attached SDE file to your application in order to check the syntax and have a working example.
It contains a template called "TAlarmFilter". Each instance of it will show a customized alarm list in the "Default" mimic.
