Gets or sets a cluster of settings that indicate or control the fixed-point representation of a digital bus. You can use this property only if you set the bus to Fixed Point label format. You can use the Label Format property to set the label format programmatically.

The cluster that this property gets or sets includes the following components:

  • Signed—Boolean that specifies whether the fixed-point data is signed or unsigned.
  • Word Length—Long unsigned integer that specifies the total number of bits in the bit string that LabVIEW uses to represent all possible values of the fixed-point data. LabVIEW accepts a maximum word length of 64 bits.
  • Integer Word Length—Long signed integer that specifies the number of bits in the bit string that LabVIEW uses to represent the integer portion of the value of the fixed-point data. The integer word length can be larger than the word length, and can be positive or negative.

This property is similar to the Encoding options on the Configure Fixed Point dialog box.
