Actions » Programming » Number Operation » Logic » Bit OR 

The action Bit OR executes a bitwise OR operation and stores the number in Result of the result list. The following number types are allowed: Signed and Unsigned


[-] Hide
  1. Open the Programming node in the Workspace Explorer.
  2. Open the Number Operation node.
  3. In the Logic node, select the Bit OR action.

Parameters:

The action has the following input parameters:


NAME DESCRIPTION
Number Type
Specifies the data type to be used for a number.

Allowed Context Scopes
 [Fixed, Local, Global]
Allowed Values [Signed Number, Unsigned Number]
Pattern 1
The first number.

Allowed Context Scopes
 [Fixed, Local, Global]
Allowed Context Types [Variable, Parameter, Enum]
Pattern 2
The second number.

Allowed Context Scopes
 [Fixed, Local, Global]
Allowed Context Types [Variable, Parameter, Enum]

Results:

The action returns the following results:


NAME
DESCRIPTION
Result Contains the result of the bitwise OR operation.

Allowed Context Scopes [Fixed, Local, Global]
Allowed Number System [Binary, Decimal, Hexadecimal]

Warning The number type set in the action Bit OR determines the data type of its Result even if the variables and/or parameters that were set for patterns 1 and 2 are of different data types.

Remarks:

The Bit OR action performing a bitwise OR operation will display the value of 1 if one or both of the patterns has a bit value of 1. The action returns the following results: 

BIT IN PATTERN 1
BIT IN PATTERN 2
BIT IN RESULT
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 1

Information The Bit OR action executes the bitwise OR operation that is represented by the two's complement.

Example 1 (Implement bitwise OR for two variables):

This example executes the bitwise OR operation for the local Switch 1 and Switch 2 variables with an Unsigned Number data type. The result is changed from Decimal to Hexadecimal value with the conversion operation and is then output via the Message Box.
