vrf symbolic constants

Question asked by VRFuser on Mar 6, 2006
That might work; unfortunately, I need to keep the code compatible with 7.0 since we're interfacing with a 98 only program.

The For-Each loop object (new in VEE 7.5) will do what you're looking for. 
Just remove its data input terminal.

Nope. You have to use a variable of some kind. I'm in the habit of doing stuff like the attached.

But it's worse that that in some ways. For instance, your for count example. You can't use a variable directly. You add an input and use a get variable with it's output wired to the input.

In general, native objects require either true absolute constants (as in you type in one thing and that's it) or input feed from an input pin.
Formula objects are not nearly so restrictive - one reason I tend to do "complete test solution in a formula box".
