Array Format

The Array used for this Task needs to be in a certain format for the task to work.

It should contain two rows, with the first column of the first row headed Name.

And the first column of the second row headed Value.

Each column in the first row should contain the names of the Constants and Controls that are required to be driven.

The Name is required to be in its pure form (without any prefix or suffix that DriveWorks applies, for example:

  • The constant DWConstantColor - will just be Color in the array.
  • The control LengthReturn - will just be Length in the array.

If a Control has the same name as a Constant, the Constant will take priority.

The Array should be laid out like so:
