Description


Number Type

Specifies the data type to be used for the numbers to be divided and its result.
Allowed Context Scope [Fixed] Allowed Values [Floating Point, Signed Number, Unsigned Number] 
Dividend

The number to be divided.
Allowed Context Scopes [Fixed, Local, Global] Allowed Context Types [Variable, Parameter, Enum] 
Denominator

Allowed Context Scopes [Fixed, Local, Global] Allowed Context Types [Variable, Parameter, Enum] 
Results:
The action returns the following results:
name

Result 
Contains the remainder after dividing the two numbers.
Allowed Context Scopes [Fixed, Local, Global] Allowed Context Types [Variable, Parameter] 
The number type set in the action Modulo determines the data type of its Result even if the variables and/or parameters that were set for the dividend and denominator are of different data types. 
An exception error occurs when a number (signed or unsigned) is divided by zero.
An infinite loop will occur when a floating point is divided by zero. 
To prevent an exception or an infinite loop, the denominator must be a nonzero digit. 
Example 1 (Convert Work in Minutes to Hours and Minutes):
This example divides the contents of the two local variables, Work In Minutes and Conversion Factor. Both variables use the data type, Number. The quotient and remainder after dividing the two numbers are then output under Write Text.
