The Initialize Array function creates an array in which each element is initialized to the specified value.

Usage

Connect an element of any data type to the element input terminal and specify the desired dimension size at dimension size 0. This creates a new array with the specified number of elements, in which each element is initialized to the specified value.

Best practice
