Data Elements

Data elements are intermediate stores for values. This means that data elements can be described by other logic elements by selecting this data element at the output (however only if both are of the same type). Data elements can also be linked with inputs of other logic elements. Every data element has the option “parameter” in the operator panel. If you have activated this option, then you can see this data element in the operator panel of the corresponding logic group and you can change it from there. This has the advantage that you do not always have to have the logic program open to change a value. Parameters also means that the value of a data element remains even if the controller were to fail.

You can change the value of any data element via the object panel. You can do this on the left-hand side of the object panel for types bool and number, and on the right-hand side via the input field for type string.
