The Type Cast function Casts x to the data type, type, by flattening it and unflattening it using the new data type. If the function must reinterpret data instead of transforming it, LabVIEW uses a temporary buffer. This function has the risk of reinterpreting data. To preserve the data value while converting the data, use the Coerce To Type function instead.

Note: You can also use the Conversion VIs and functions to convert data types.
