Version:
    Last Modified: March 13, 2017

    Adds a new alias to a database file.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    CAN FD ISO mode

    An input that sets the way the API processes ISO FD frames.

    0 ISO
    1 Non-ISO
    2 ISO Legacy
    datatype_icon

    default FD baud rate

    An input that sets the default FD baud rate for a CAN database that does not internally specify the FD baud rate.

    datatype_icon

    default baud rate

    An input that provides the default baud rate, used when filepath refers to a CANdb database (.dbc) or an NI-CAN database (.ncd). These database formats are specific to CAN and do not specify a cluster baud rate. Use this default baud rate to specify a default CAN baud rate to use with this alias. If filepath refers to a FIBEX database (.xml) or LIN LDF file, the default baud rate parameter is ignored. The FIBEX and LDF database formats require a valid baud rate for every cluster, and NI-XNET uses that baud rate as the default.

    datatype_icon

    ignore application protocol?

    An input that is applicable only to a database with a J1939 application protocol, and sets whether the API should ignore the application protocol and process J1939 frames as raw CAN frames (True), or process them as J1939 frames (False).

    datatype_icon

    alias

    An input that provides the desired alias name. Unlike the name of other XNET database objects, the alias name can use special characters such as space and dash. Commas are not allowed in the alias name, because XNET Database Get List parses the alias list as a comma-separated list of strings. If the alias name already exists, this node changes the previous filepath to the specified filepath.

    datatype_icon

    filepath

    An input that provides the path to the CANdb, FIBEX, or LDF file. Commas are not allowed in the alias name, because XNET Database Get List parses the alias list as a comma-separated list of strings.

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Description

    NI-XNET uses alias names for database files. The alias names provide a shorter name for display and allow for changes to the file system without changing the application.

    This node is supported on Windows only.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Supported
