VisualApplets comprises numerous operators which represent processing functionalities. This part explains the functionality of all available operators in detail. The operator reference is structured as explained in the following:

  • Description

    In the description the main functionality and behavior of the operator is explained. It is the main part of the operator reference.

    For operators of the library Hardware Platform, a table is included which shows on which hardware platforms the respective operator is available.

  • Operator Restrictions

    If the operator has restrictions in input format or simulation, these issues are listed here.

  • I/O Properties

    Shows a table where

    • The operator type is given. The type can either be O-, M- or P-type. (see 'Operator Types')
    • The input links are listed.
    • The output links are listed.

    If the operator is of type M and has more than one input, synchronous and asynchronous input groups are listed. See 'M-type Operators with Multiple Inputs' for more information on input groups.

  • Supported Link Formats

    The supported link formats for all input and output ports are listed. See 'Link Properties' for an explanation of all link properties.

  • Parameters

    If the operator has parameters, they are listed in this section. For each parameter besides its description, the name, the value range and the default value is given. To learn more about parameterization, check 'Module Properties'.

  • Examples of Use

    The examples of use section is a very helpful part. It shows a list of examples where the operator is used. You can directly click on a link to get redirected to the example. The example of use can be anywhere in the user manual or tutorial and examples parts.

  • More Information

    Some operators have more detailed information at the end of the operator reference.

The operator reference can directly be accessed from VisualApplets. See 'Help' for more information. Moreover, the Index is a good resource to quickly access the required operator references. Finally, in Library Overview a list of all available libraries is provided.
