int cxInputConnectsGet(int port)
integer function cxInputConnectsGet(port) integer port
- The input port descriptor to check, as returned from cxInputPortOpen.
Advanced modules may need to know about individual connections to a particular input port, so they can cache old inputs on that port. The fan-in on IRIS Explorer module input ports is serial, that is, upon each firing, the module receives only a single data object per port. However, in the presence of multiple connections, each subsequent firing may present data from different connections on a single port, depending on the behavior of the map. Once a module fires, it can obtain a unique identifier for the connection on which new data arrived by calling the routine cxInputDataConnIDGet.
Use cxFireConnectsGet for a "Fire" port.cxFireConnectsGet(3E), cxInputDataConnIDGet(3E), cxInputDataGet(3E), cxInputDataChanged(3E).
