MVP 2021 Ausman Posted May 18, 2022 MVP 2021 Report Share Posted May 18, 2022 Hi all, if you are new to Vision and Visilogic, one thing that constantly crops up on the forum is the correct use of subroutines. This is discussed in depth at point 11 in https://forum.unitronics.com/topic/6229-ongoing-20-topics-almost-worth-pinning/ but a quick overview is here to alert you in the first place. If you STOP calling a sub, then everything in it will remain exactly the way the sub was setting things on the scan when the conditional call stops. They do NOT change state at all when the call ceases, until different areas of the ladder that are still active work on the operands/elements involved. If the sub turns a MB on, it remains ON when the sub ceases to be called. It is very easy to think along the lines of if the power is not supplied to the sub, because the power rail supplying the MB has gone off, the MB will go OFF if it was ON. This is not true and is a very important thing to understand. The ongoing list is a good thing to go through completely anyway. And another topic that explains things well: https://forum.unitronics.com/topic/7081-subroutines/ cheers, Aus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
