Settings for a Data Point Element

The new data point P2 is ready for use in our application. However, it is often desirable to make some further settings for the elements. For example, every element can carry the following additional information:

  • Description

  • Alias address (second internal notation system in addition to the data point description)

  • Number format (number of digits before/after the decimal point)

  • Unit

Figure: Enter the Description Text, Number Format and Unit for the Data point Element (config: _common)

The settings can be displayed by a [leftMouseClick] on the "_common" sub element (config) for each data point element.

Enter the settings for the data point P2 as shown in the figure above.

In a multilingual project you can enter the description multilingual. For more information on multilingual projects, see Multilingual Projects, Basics.
