I have an input composed of 16 digits numbers from a barcode scanner, which will be entered into a Numeric Text Field as one large number. For example, “1234567009000005”.
I need to
- divide this number into four groups, such as 1234567, 009, 00, 0005.
- store the groups into four variables
I was wondering if I can do this in Ignition? If yes, is it better to split that large number in Ignition or instead send it to a PLC, split it there, and send 4 tags to Ignition?
Appreciate your kind help.
