Owning Palette: Conversion VIs and Functions
Requires: Base Development System
Converts any non-complex number to fixed-point representation.
If you do not wire a value to the fixed-point type input or configure the output settings of this function, the data type of the fixed-point output adapts to the data you wire to the number input. For example, if you wire an 8-bit unsigned integer to the number input, LabVIEW returns an 8-bit unsigned fixed-point number with 8 integer bits. This function saturates the number by default if overflow occurs.
|fixed-point type is the fixed-point data type to which you want to convert the integer data. You can configure the fixed-point data type in the Data Type page of the Properties dialog box. LabVIEW ignores any data in the constant or control that you wire to fixed-point type. You also can leave this input unwired and configure the output data type in the Output Configuration page of the Properties dialog box.|
|number can be any non-complex number.|
|fixed-point is the input data scaled to the requested fixed-point data type.|
To override the default behavior of this function, right-click the function and select Properties from the shortcut menu to display the Output Configuration page of the Properties dialog box. You can use this dialog box to configure the output settings of this function.
