State values

If required, a discrete variable's states can have an associated Value in addition to the state's name.

First the State value type must be set on a variable, via the New node window, or the Edit states window.

The following state value types are supported:

  • None - states do not have a value specified.
  • Boolean - a state can take the value False or True.
  • Double Interval - a state defines a continuous interval (e.g. (-Inf, 32.5]). Intervals can be defined manually, or automatically using discretization.
  • Integer - a state can have an integer value (e.g. 99)

There are options in the Batch query, and Data sampling windows, to output states using their value, instead of their name, or zero based index.
