Variant To Data (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Converts variant data to the data type that you specify so that you can display or process the data.

type

The data type of the data stored in variant. You can wire any data type to this input. If the data type wired to type does not match the data stored in variant, the node returns an error. If the data is an integer, you can coerce the data to another numeric representation, such as an extended-precision, floating-point number.

variant

The variant data you want to convert to the data type that you specify in type.

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

data

The variant data changed to the data type specified by type. If variant could not be converted to the data type specified, this returns the default value for the data type.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
