Byte order in the frame payload (ring).
defines how signal bytes are ordered in the frame payload when the frame is loaded in
- Little endian (Intel): Higher significant signal bits are placed on
higher byte addresses.
- Big endian (Motorola): Higher significant signal bits are placed on
lower byte addresses.
If the Byte Order property does not contain a valid value,
and you create an XNET session that uses this signal, the session returns an error. To
ensure that the property contains a valid value, you can do one of the following:
- Use a database file (or alias) to create the session. The file formats require a
valid value in the text for this property.
- Set a value in LabVIEW using the property node. This is needed when you create your
own in-memory database (:memory:) rather than use a file. The property does not
contain a default value in this case, so you must set a valid value prior to
creating a session.
