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

Last Modified: February 22, 2017

Create a new subframe. This node selection is the same as XNET Database Create (Subframe), except that it uses a PDU as the subframe's parent, not a frame.


PDU in

The PDU parent object.


subframe name

The name of the subframe to create. The name must be unique for all subframes in a frame. 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

A copy of the PDU in parameter. You can use this parameter to wire the node to subsequent nodes.


subframe out

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


error out

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


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

The subframe name input becomes the Name (Short) property of the created object.

The subframe 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.

A subframe defines the multiplexer value for all dynamic signals in this subframe. Dynamic signals within a subframe inherit the multiplexer value from the subframe parent.

In NI-CAN, a subframe was called a mode.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Supported
