Node Properties

COM Connection ID:
Choose the COM Port Connection ID to listen to.

The following settings need to be used:
600/8n1 (Baud Rate: 9600, Parity: None, Data Bits: 8,Stop Bits:1).

Value Range:
The range defines the jump point of a maximum value back to zero.
Enter the range in mm. This is only important for correct calculation of delta values when using as incremental length count. 

Node control

With Widget Designer version 6, all nodes support so called node commands. Node commands access functions (i.e methods) from a node and / or set a parameter (i.e. property).

Enter "Node", followed by the according ID and a dot and a list will pop up showing all available commands for the node. For instance, Node1.TintColor.SetRGB(125,0,255) colors the node in purple.
In addition, the node properties with a parameter ID (the small superscript number) can be edited via the command Node1.SetParam(ID,new Value) or WDNodeSetParam(NodeID,ParamID,Value).

Node output values

The node generates the following output:

- Value

- Delta
