Right-click a digital bus glyph on the plot legend of a mixed signal or digital waveform graph and select **Label Format»Configure Fixed Point** to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to configure the encoding, range, and formatting of a fixed-point digital bus label.

This dialog box includes the following components:

**Encoding**—Specifies the binary encoding of a fixed-point number. Use the following components to specify the bit size to which you want the number to conform:**Signed**—Specifies that the fixed-point data is signed. The sign bit is always the first bit in the bit string that represents the data.**Unsigned**—Specifies that the fixed-point data is unsigned.**Word Length**—Specifies the total number of bits in the bit string that LabVIEW uses to represent all possible values of the fixed-point data. LabVIEW accepts a maximum word length of 64 bits.**Integer Word Length**—Specifies the number of bits in the bit string that LabVIEW uses to represent the integer portion of the value of the fixed-point data. The integer word length can be larger than the word length, and can be positive or negative.

**Range**—Displays the range and delta for a fixed-point number. Use the following components to specify the range of possible values to which you want the number to conform:**Minimum**—Displays the minimum value for the fixed-point data range.**Maximum**—Displays the maximum value for the fixed-point data range.**Delta**—Displays the increment between numbers within the desired range.

**Formatting**—Specifies the format style and number of digits of precision for a fixed-point number. Use the following components to specify the format to which you want the number to conform:**Style**—Specifies the formatting style of the fixed-point data. You can select from the following formatting styles:**Normal**—Displays the fixed-point data in standard numeric notation.**Scientific**—Displays the fixed-point data in scientific notation. For example, 60 in normal notation equals 6E+1 in scientific, where E represents the power of 10 exponent.**Engineering**—Displays the fixed-point data in engineering notation, in which the exponent is always a multiple of three.**SI notation**—Displays the fixed-point data in System International (SI) notation, in which the unit of measurement appears after the value. For example, 6000 in normal notation equals 6k in SI notation.

**Digits of Precision**—Specifies the number of digits after the decimal point.
