Is possible use &h in variables long format?.
Public longvar as long
longvar=&h+longvar (I think it would transmit &h2694, that is hexadecimal number)
In need the hexadecimal be transmit in long format and no string. Actually the longvar is not constant and it will take variable values.
I hope this example clarifies how to go about it.
Public longvar As Long = &h26940000 'Long variables are 4 bytes long Public InputHex As String * 9 = "0A0B0C0D" Public longvar2 As Long BeginProg Scan (1,Sec,0,0) SerialOutBlock (Com1,longvar,2) 'Outputs first two bytes of longvar longvar2 = HexToDec(InputHex) SerialOutBlock (Com1,longvar2,4) 'Output all 4 bytes of longvar2 NextScan EndProg
But they are constants. I will have variables continuously and I need they are in long format.
like in this case:
But if they are variables values:
Public longvar As Long = &h26940000 'Long variables are 4 bytes long BeginProg Scan (1,Sec,0,0) SerialOutBlock (Com1,longvar,2) 'Outputs first two bytes of longvar
The example I provided does work with variables. You can change the values of longvar and InputHex from the Public table.
It is also interesting to note the following. With the following concatenation, the datalogger will attempt to treat the righthand side as a 32 bit signed integer.
Public hexStr1 As String * 10 = "0A0B0C0D" Public hexStr2 As String * 10 = "&h0A0B0C0D" Public flt1 As Float Public flt2 As Float Public lng1 As Long Public lng2 As Long Public dbl1 As Double Public dbl2 As Double BeginProg Scan (1,Sec,0,0) 'result is 1.684961e+08 flt1 = "&h" & hexStr1 flt2 = hexStr2 'result is 168,496,141 lng1 = "&h" & hexStr1 lng2 = hexStr2 'result is 168,496,141 dbl1 = "&h" & hexStr1 dbl2 = hexStr2 NextScan EndProg
Thank you very much. I could use the concatenation successfully to my purpose.
