In Vista 5.1, TGML graphics bindings can be bound using a multi-bind .[OBJECT] bindings. Dragging and dropping a single object can then automatically bind all other defined signals, for example. But there is a limitation of two network levels.

Controllers with standard naming (especially application specific controllers with pre-defined naming) can be bound to graphics more quickly and efficiently with the use of multi-binding. There are limitations to what can be multi-bound simultaneously.
Multi-binds can bind all defined signals for up to two levels of their database structure. For example:
RoomTemperature.[OBJECT] can be used to bind:
You can travel up one more level, though to get even more signals at once:
SUMMARY.[OBJECT] can be used to bind:
You cannot travel up any more levels, so you could not do:
LonworksNetwork.[OBJECT] in order to bind all signals in a network at once.
