Grouped blocks

Adding inputs and outputs to a grouped block

You can add ports to a grouped block directly to the block or add them to the internal algo within the grouped block.

Adding a port to the grouped block

To add ports to a grouped block:

  1. Right-click on the block and navigate to the type of connector and value type to pass through the port.

    The new port is added to the grouped block.

  2. Double-click the grouped block to open it and notice the new input block.

  3. Connect the new input block to the desired port.

Adding a port from inside a grouped block

To add ports to a grouped block from within the block:

  1. Double-click the group block to open it.

  2. Anywhere on the ADL canvas (not on a block or edge), right-click to display the context menu; then select the type of connector and value type.

    The new port is added to the canvas.

  3. Connect the new port to a block, if desired.

  4. Return to the parent algo to see the new port on the block.
