Takes in a configurable number of asynchronous input events and outputs them using the first-in-first-out principle. Note that unlike merge, this tool does not necessarily preserve the correct ordering of output objects if they originate from the same data source.
A typical use case for this tool is to work as an event source for a script that implements the application's main event processing logic. Asynchronous data sources such as data inputs and digital inputs are first connected to an event funnel which passes the input events with their indices and/or names to the script tool. The script decides the appropriate action based on the source and the value of the event.
- A table that defines dynamic input parameters. The first column contains the name of a parameter and the second one the data type of the parameter's value.
All dynamic inputs are required and asynchronous.
- Outputs the objects received in dynamic inputs in the order they appear.
- The (zero-based) index of the input from which the object was received.
- The name of the input from which the object was received.
