Issue Details

When I try to set the Numeric Precision using a property node, I get the following error.

Error 1435 occured at Property Node (arg 1) in Your VI



To fix this error, follow these steps.
  1. Right click your numeric.
  2. Select 'Create' from the pop-up list.
  3. Select 'Property Node' from the pop-up list.
  4. Select 'Display Format' from the pop-up list.
  5. Select 'Format' to create a new property node.
  6. Right click the new property node and select 'Change to Write'.
  7. Input a 0 to the new property node.
After following these steps, you should no longer experience error 1435.

Additional Information

The Input to the Format property node is a 9 by default which sets the Precision to Read-Only. By changing the input to 0, the Read-Only attribute is removed, allowing you to set the precision. There are also other input options which you can see by using context help with this new property node.
