Create User Event (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: March 15, 2017

Returns a reference to a user event with the name and data type you specify.

Programming Patterns

Wire this reference to a Register For Events node to enable access to the user event from within an Event Structure. Wire the Register For Events node to an Event Structure to access the user event. After registering an event with multiple Event Structures, you can wire the reference from Create User Event to a Generate User Event node to send the event and associated data to all Event Structures registered for the event.

user event data type

A cluster of elements or an individual element whose data type and label define the data type and name of the user event.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

user event out

The resulting user event reference.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
