Get Numeric Information (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: August 28, 2017

    Retrieves enumeration, unit, and representation information from a variant that contains a numeric data type.

    This node returns an error if the variant does not contain a numeric.

    variant

    Variant data from which you want to retrieve data type information.

    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

    enum names

    Enumerated values, if the numeric data type stored in the variant is an enumeration. Otherwise, this output returns an empty string.

    datatype_icon

    units

    Unit type and exponent, if the numeric data type stored in the variant has units.

    datatype_icon

    Unit Type

    Unit type of the numeric data type stored in the variant.

    Name Description
    Radians The numeric data type has a unit type of radians.
    Steradians The numeric data type has a unit type of steradians.
    Seconds The numeric data type has a unit type of seconds.
    Meters The numeric data type has a unit type of meters.
    Kilograms The numeric data type has a unit type of kilograms.
    Amperes The numeric data type has a unit type of amperes.
    Kelvins The numeric data type has a unit type of kelvins.
    Moles The numeric data type has a unit type of moles.
    Candelas The numeric data type has a unit type of candelas.
    InvalidUnit The unit type of the numeric data type is invalid.
    datatype_icon

    Exponent

    Exponent of the unit.

    datatype_icon

    representation

    Numeric representation of the data type stored in the variant.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: This product does not support FPGA devices

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
