This function is used by Ignition's Expression language.


This function, whose name stands for "binary enumeration", takes a list of booleans, and returns the index (starting at 1) of the first parameter that evaluates to true. This can be a very handy tool to convert bits into an integer code to drive the Component Styles feature.


binEnum(value[, value...])

  • Parameters

    • int value - Any number of values.
  • Results

    • int - The index of the first true value.


Code Snippet
binEnum(0, 1, 0) //returns 2
Code Snippet
binEnum(0, false, 15, 0, 23) //returns 3 (the index of the 15 - any non-zero number is "true")
