Object PmaCommMsg (Communication message)

See: PmaCommMsg - Deatiled object description

The object serves to the definition of the format and data of one communication message.

No other Pma objects can be created in this object.
The PmaCommMsg object can be created only in the PmaComm object (if the selected protocol supports the usage of the PmaCommMsg object). There can be even more PmaCommMsg objects in the PmaComm object.
This object adds variables into the calculation of the application size, which influences the basic runtime licence type/size (see: Price list of the PROMOTIC system ).
This object inherits properties, methods and events of the PmaObject object.
Properties and methods of this object:
AutoRunEnabled Enable/disable the automated transmissions
AutoRunPeriod The period of automated transmissions
GetCount Returns the number of transmissions
GetReady Detects whether the PmaCommMsg object is ready to transfer the message
LastErr Error number of the last communication message transfer
LastTextErr Text error description of last communication message transfer
ReadVars Access to variables on the "Data-received" tab
Run Command for transferring the message (only for messages of the Master type)
WriteVars Access to variables on the "Data-sent" tab
Properties and methods inherited from the PmaObject object:
AddEvent Registers a function into selected event
GetInfo Returns the Info object with the specified name
GetOwnedByIndex Returns the subobject defined by its index
GetOwnedByName Returns reference to the subobject defined by its name
GetOwnedByType Array of references to the subobjects
GetOwnedNum Returns number of subobjects in the object
GetPar Reading the value of the Pma object parameter (or its parents)
GetPathName Object name with the path to this object
GetPermission Returns permission of corresponding operation from object
Methods Access to designer's methods of this object
Name Object name (without the path)
Parent Returns reference to the parent object in the tree of Pma objects
Pm Returns reference to the Pma object or to its implementation subobject
RemoveEvent Un-registers the function in the specified event
Root Returns reference to the root application object PmaRoot
Events of this object:
onBeginOfTransfer Is triggered always before transmitting the Master message starts
onDataReceive Is triggered after the successful data reading
onEndOfTransfer Is triggered after the transfer of the whole message
Events inherited from the PmaObject object:
onStart Is triggered for each object in the runtime only once at the beginning
onStop Is triggered for each Pma object in the runtime mode only once at the stop of the application
Configuration tabs:
Object General information about the object
Events Definition of object events algorithms
Parameters Definition of the communication message parameters
Data-sent List of variables for the write
Data-received List of variables for the read

Pm9.00.00: Object name changed: PmCommMsg -> PmaCommMsg
Pm8.00.07: New configurators AutoRun transfer enabled and Transfer period [ms]. For communication by this object, in common cases, is not necessary call the Run method in the timer.
Pm8.00.01: New "AutoRun transfer enabled" configurator and a new the onBeginOfTransfer event allows to simplify the launching of periodical Master messages.
