After you select a pattern to use for the connector pane, you can assign a front panel control or indicator to each of the connector pane terminals. When you assign controls and indicators to the connector pane, place inputs on the left and outputs on the right to prevent complicated or confusing wiring patterns.
Complete the following steps to assign terminals to controls and indicators in a connector pane.
|Note Although you use the Wiring tool to assign terminals on the connector pane to front panel controls and indicators, no wires are drawn between the connector pane and these controls and indicators.|
|Note If the connector pane terminal turns white, a connection was not made. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the connector pane terminal changes to the proper data type color.|
If automatic tool selection is disabled, you can use the Wiring tool to select the control or indicator first and then select the terminal.
You can specify which terminals are required, recommended, and optional.
|Tip (Windows) To switch the location of two terminals, hold down the <Ctrl> key and use the Positioning tool to select the two terminals you want to switch. In this keyboard shortcut, the <Ctrl> key corresponds to the (Mac OS X) <Option> key or to the (Linux) <Alt> key.|
