Requires: Base Development System

Adds 1 to the input value.

The connector pane displays the default data types for this polymorphic function.


x can be a scalar number, a fixed-point number, an array or cluster of numbers, an array of clusters of numbers, a time stamp, and so on.
x+1 is the result of x+1. If the input is a time stamp value, this function increments the time by one second. If the input is an enumerated type value, this function increments the last enumerated value to the first.

Note  You can manually configure this function to output data of a type you want. To specify the output data type, right-click the function and select Properties to display the Object Properties dialog box. On the Output Configuration page, click the Representation icon and select the data type you want. A blue coercion dot appears on the output terminal of the function to indicate that you have configured the output data type.


Refer to the Numeric Functions VI in the labview\examples\Numerics directory for an example of using the Increment function.
