Array deceleration returns BAD_PARAMS [message #1777740] Mon, 04 December 2017 01:48 Go to next message

Hello,

I am trying to create a basic function block which takes an input of 64 DWORDs. In the FB interface UI, I am adding an input of DWORD type and setting its "Array Size" to 64. When I try to download it to FORTE, it returns an error with "Reason=BAD_PARAMS" in the resulting XML. Even a two elements size array returns the same error.

How can I set an array of DWORD as an input data?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

IEC 61499 utilizes the datatypes of IEC 61131-3 for its in and outputs. When you specify parameters in 4diac you need to comply to the IEC 61131-3 rules for literals. For array this means that you have to encapsulate the array values in square brackets. If you have an array of size 64 you can also give less values then the size of the array but not more. So if you give the value [23, 16#AFFE, 34, 16#ABCD] should initialize the first 4 values of your array.

Thanks. That helped. One more issue though. On the data out port, If I declare a large array, say of 60 DWORDs, the debugger does not show anything on the interface although I have confirmed that array itself works fine.

Just to check. Does a smaller array work?

Yes, it does. I can see the output of 8 or 16 bytes USINT array but when I try to watch the values of a bigger array, say of 60 DWORDs or UDINTs, the debugger shows N/A, although array works fine internally. I am using 4DIAC 1.8.4 on CentOS. FORTE is running on a separate Raspberry Pi.
