Issue Details

I am trying to initialize a blank array on my block diagram to a specific data type. When I drag a specialized constant into the array box, the array does not become the data type of that constant.

This occurs for only specialized constants such as: +Inf, -Inf, Math Constants, Empty String Constant, Space Constant, Tab Constant, End of Line Constant, Empty Path Constant, Not a Refnum Constant, and others.



This is an expected result to see when trying to initialize a blank array with one of these specialized constants. For example, if a Tab Constant is inserted into a blank array, it is designed that the array does not change from its void state.
