You can display a radix on a numeric object and use the radix to change the data to decimal, hexadecimal, octal, or binary format, or to SI notation.

Complete the following steps to display the radix on a numeric object and change the format of the data.

  1. Right-click a numeric object and select Visible Items»Radix from the shortcut menu. A letter (d, x, o, b, or p) appears in the numeric display.
  2. Use the Operating tool to click the letter and select Decimal, Hex, Octal, Binary, or SI Notation from the shortcut menu. If the representation of the numeric object is floating-point, you can select only Decimal or SI Notation.
Note  If the format of the numeric control changes, LabVIEW hides or changes the radix so it becomes compatible with the new format.

You also can use the Radix Visible? property to display the radix programmatically.
