My title may look pretty silly, but that’s what I need to figure out how to do in FPMI. I am looking to convert an old RSView32 hmi, and the people before me thought it would be best to store string characters in integers. (It looks like Rockwell thought it was a good idea as well since RSView32 does all of this implicitly behind the scenes)
Well, enough griping…here is the chain of events I need to figure out how to do in FPMI:
First you need to break up each 16-bit Integer into two 8-bit Short Integers. Once you have your two Short Integers you cast those into standard ascii characters and concatenate them together. Thus each integer can hold 2 characters. I need to be able to do this for an array of Integers.
What would be the best way to pull this off in FPMI? I am using KepServerEx for my OPC server which supports advanced tags. Perhaps I could use that?
Thanks in advance.
