Examples

The following examples include this node.

ST_Colour

This is a simple example of using the If-Then Block VOP with the "true" value coming from outside the If-Then subnet, and the "false" value also coming from outside the If-Then subnet.

A Condition VOP is used based on the "t" Global Variable. When "t" is less then .5, the If-Then gets a "false" Condition, and when "t" is equal to or greater than .5, the If-Then gets a "true" Condition.

In this example, the red color is used if the value fed into the condition is not True, and blue if the condition being fed in is True.

SimpleInsideSubnet

This is a very simple example of using the If-Then Block VOP with the "true" value coming from outside the If-Then subnet, and the "false" value coming from inside the If-Then subnet.

In this example, the red color is used if the value fed into the condition is not True, and blue if the condition being fed in is True.

SimpleOutsideSubnet

This is a very simple example of using the If-Then Block VOP with the "true" value coming from outside the If-Then subnet, and the "false" value also coming from outside the If-Then subnet.

In this example, the red color is used if the value fed into the condition is not True, and blue if the condition being fed in is True.
