Owning Palette: Data Type Parsing VIs

Requires: Base Development System

Retrieves fixed-point numeric (FXP) information from the data type stored in Variant. This VI only accepts variants that contain the fixed-point numeric data type.

Variant specifies the variant data from which you want to retrieve data type information.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
FXP Representation returns the fixed-point information from the fixed-point data type stored in Variant.
Signed returns whether the fixed-point data type stored in Variant is signed.
Word Length returns the number of bits that LabVIEW uses to represent all the possible values of the fixed-point data type stored in Variant.
Integer Word Length returns the number of integer bits, or the number of bits to shift the binary point to the left to reach the most significant bit, for all possible values of the fixed-point data type stored in Variant.
FXP Range returns the range LabVIEW calculates for the fixed-point number stored in Variant.
Range Min returns the minimum value of the range of the fixed-point data type stored in Variant.
Range Max returns the maximum value of the range of the fixed-point data type stored in Variant.
Delta returns the maximum distance between any two sequential numbers in the range of the fixed-point data type stored in Variant.
Include Overflow Status? returns whether the fixed-point number in Variant includes an overflow status. If Include Overflow Status? is TRUE, LabVIEW allocates additional storage space to track whether the fixed-point number is the result of an operation that overflowed.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
