Write - method of the PmaOpcDaClientGroup object

Description:
It allows writing the defined block in the data group (defined on the "Data" tab) to the OPC server.
Syntax:
Boolean Write(Long Attr, Long From, Long To)
Parameters:
Attr(Long) the way of the transfer: (see OPC DA Basic terms)
0 - asynchronous access (recommended)
2 - synchronous access
From(Long) Index of the first value (zero-based index).
To(Long) Index of the last value (zero-based index). -1 represents "till the end".
Return values:
true - on success
false - on error
Note:
Writing to the OPC server proceeds always into DEVICE and yet it is recommended to use the Attr value 0, i.e. the asynchronous access. When writing to DEVICE it is necessary to communicate with the device making the Write method take longer time in synchronous access slowing down the whole appication.

The Write method needn't be called if the "Auto send to server when writing to item" configurator is checked (on the "Parameters" tab) because the data are then "written" automatically.
