XNET Database Create Object (PDU » Signal) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: February 22, 2017

Create a new dynamic signal (signal within a multiplexed PDU). This node selection is the same as XNET Database Create (Dynamic Signal), except that it uses a PDU as the signal's parent, not a frame.


PDU in

The PDU parent object.


signal name

The name of the signal to create. Lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, and the underscore (_) are valid characters for the name. The space ( ), period (.), and other special characters are not supported within the name. The name must begin with a letter (uppercase or lowercase) or underscore, and not a number. The name is limited to 128 characters.


error in

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

Default: No error


PDU out

The reference to the newly created PDU object.


signal out

The I/O name of the newly created signal object.


error out

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


This node creates an XNET signal object. It is an instance of XNET Database Create Object.

The signal name input becomes the Name (Short) property of the created object. This is distinct from the string contained within signal out, which uses the syntax described in XNET Signal I/O Name.

The signal object is created and remains in memory until the database is closed. This node does not change the open database file on disk. To save the newly created object to the file, use XNET Database Save.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Supported
