Short name of the string. A signal name must be unique for all signals in a frame.
Valid characters are lowercase letters (a–z), uppercase letters (A–Z), numbers, and underscore (_). Other special characters such as space ( ) and period (.) are not supported within the name. The short name must begin with a letter (uppercase or lowercase) or underscore, and not a number. The short name is limited to 128 characters.
If you write this property, it changes both short and long name.
Long Name: Name (Short)
Class: XNET Signal
Unlike the I/O name (long name), the short name does not include qualifiers such as the database, cluster, or frame name to ensure that it is unique. The short name is used for display purposes. The fully qualified name is available by using the XNET Signal I/O name as a string.
If you write this property to change the signal's short name and then use the original XNET Signal that contains the old name, errors can result because the old name cannot be found. Use the following steps to avoid this problem:
