Any set of blocks can be consolidated into a single Group block. In addition to the ease of replication and enabling a "cleaner" canvas, grouping a set of blocks allows the user to virtualize or save the group to a library for future use.
By default, a Group block is shown as a yellow square that shows its individual ports whose names match the names of their connected blocks. If you want to save space, you can also display a Group block in a collapsed form without identifying its ports.
Note In the collapsed state, you cannot make new connections to the Group blocks ports.
To customize the block, update the Block Properties.
