mbbiDirect Records

Normal Operation

Depending on the format type, different record fields are used for output and input. The variable x stands for the written or read value.

DOUBLE format (e.g. %f):
Not allowed.
LONG format (e.g. %i):
If MASK==0 (because NOBT is not set):
Output: x=VAL
Input: VAL=x
If MASK!=0:
Output: x=RVAL&MASK
Input: RVAL=x&MASK
MASK is initialized to NOBT 1-bits shifted left by SHFT.
ENUM format (e.g. %{):
Not allowed.
STRING format (e.g. %s):
Not allowed.


During initialization, the @init handler is executed, if present. All format converters work like in normal operation.
