Hi there, I would like to know if there is a special function similar to the "Copy vector of inputs to a register" for use with outputs. I would like to be able to copy the current state of outputs to a MI register. An alternative would be to use a bunch of contacts and coils to link the outputs to MBs then use the "convert MB to MI" special function. However this does not seem like the tidiest solution. What I am aiming to achieve is having a screen to display the current state of all inputs and outputs. The user will be able to navigate up and down the list of outputs and see their current state. The aim is to achieve this using a single display in the UI. I have already achieved what I want for the inputs. Using the "Copy vector of inputs to a register" function, I can copy the selected Input value to an MI and display that on the screen. It appears that there is only a "Copy MI to output vector" for outputs which is the opposite of what I would like. I would really appreciate any suggestions.
