Display Numeric

This function block is used to visualize numeric values of standard data types.

The display of the numeric values is carried out as precise as possible. If the given digit number does not suffice for the indication of an integer value, the higher order digits are cut off. For floating point values an exponential representation is used in this case.


The parameter dialog can be used to change several preferences.

The data type and the size of the function block can be defined. The font and the colors for the display (digits, background, and frame) can be selected. The accuracy of the display can be defined by setting the number of digits. Finally the general display mode can be determined.

By attaching a signal to the input, the function block will adapt itself by changing the data type and selecting typical preferences.

This function block has no corresponding target code. During online observation the values are read and represented cyclically.
