Creating a virtualized group of blocks

To create a virtualized group of blocks:

  1. Highlight a group of blocks and .

  2. Right-click on one of the selected blocks and select Group.

    The highlighted blocks become consolidated into a single block:

  3. In the Block Properties for the grouped block, set the Virtual property to True. You can also choose Virtualize from the block's context menu.

    The block's border changes to a dashed line to indicate the block is a virtualized block.

    A new 'copy' of the virtualized blocks will be generated every time a discrete event message enters the virtualized block.

  4. If desired, you can double-click a virtual block to open it and display its logic in the canvas.

Note A virtualized block must have a discrete event message input as it is created only when a discrete event message enters the block. See Rules of Virtualization for more information.
