This block creates an input for the structure block into whose worksheet it was inserted.
At inserting the name of the structure block connector can be entered and the data type can be selected. The name appears left besides the block symbol. It must be unambiguous i.e. no other input or output block in the structure block may bear the same name. When inserting, therefore an unambiguous name is suggested. Any data type defined in the system can be selected.
The data type of the structure block connector can be selected from a list. The size of the list depends on the number of configured data types. User defined data types can be also contained besides the standard data types. Like the connections the input block is also colored depending on the data type.
The output of the input block can be connected with compatible inputs of other blocks in the worksheet. Before connecting the newly created structure block input it must be placed on the symbol of the structure block in the design view. (refer to programming systems online help)
The parameter dialog is used to assign the name and select the data type. It can only be opened in edit mode.
Output depending on assigned data type
Like the connections the input block is colored depending on the data type.
