Output variables
Output variables are where the results are recorded when the equation is calculated. With the exception of the Buttons and Optimizer blocks, the equation- based blocks have a table for creating the output variables. Each row in the Output Variables table (shown at right) has a popup menu for selecting a pre-defined type of output variable and a field for its name and value. Variables created here are static (permanent).
