Number to Hexadecimal String (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Converts a numeric value to a string that shows the number's hexadecimal format. The digits A through F always appear in uppercase in the output string.



A number to be converted into a string.

This input can also be any data type that contains only numbers, such as an array of numbers or a cluster of numbers. If this input is floating-point, this node rounds it to a 64-bit integer before conversion.



A number specifying how many characters to use to express number as a string.

If width is less than the number of characters required, this node uses exactly as many characters as needed. If width is greater than the number of characters required, this node adds a space on the left side of the output string for each additional character.

Default: No value — Exactly as many characters as are needed to represent the number, with no extra padding.

number represented as a hexadecimal string.

The following table shows how the values of number and width affect hex integer string.
number width hex integer string Comments
3 4 0003 If width is larger than needed, zeros are added on the left.
42 3 02A
-4.2 3 FFFFFFFC -4.2 is rounded up to -4 in 64-bit integer format. width is too small to represent the hex version of a negative number, so the field width is extended.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: DAQExpress does not support FPGA devices

Web Server: Supported in VIs that run in a web application
