SoftMotion Resetting Contour Table Programmatically

Issue Details

I am doing contour moves in SoftMotion. My table is updated and the number of points in one waveform changes. When I stop my program and restart it, previous points in the buffer will run before the new points execute. How can I programmatically reset the contour buffer?


First, set the Overwrite input to True in the Contour function. This will overwrite the points in the contour table. However, if the amount of updated points is less than the original array size, it will not completely overwrite the buffer. Therefore, you should wire in an array of zeros to begin your program. While this will create a delay at the beginning of the program, it will empty the buffer.
