Read Variable (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Returns the current value of the PSP variable immediately.

NI recommends that you use Tag nodes instead of this node for new applications you create.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

shared variable refnum in

The reference to the PSP variable.

datatype_icon

data type

The data type of the PSP variable.

If you specify the data type using shared variable refnum in, this node removes the data type input. If you specify the data type upon opening the connection, this input is unavailable for subsequent read nodes.

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

shared variable refnum out

The reference to the PSP variable.

datatype_icon

data out

The data read from the PSP variable.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

timestamp

The timestamp indicating when the current data was written to the shared variable.
