This function is used by Ignition's Expression language.


This function, whose name stands for "binary encoder", takes a list of booleans, and treats them like the bits in a binary number. It returns an integer representing the decimal value of the number. The digits go from least significant to most significant.This can be a very handy tool to convert bits into an integer code to drive the Component Styles feature.


binEnc(value[, value...])

  • Parameters

    • Bool value - A value that represents a bit. Can be either 0 or 1, and can enter in as many values as necessary.
  • Results

    • int - The integer representation of the binary value entered.
