See the Details Dialog Box concept and Details Dialog Box screen topics in the User Interface section.

For information on hardware related attributes/parameters, input, and output data of a selected module/block, see Modules, Logic Blocks, and Input and Output Objects sections.

To view and modify Details:

  1. Access the Details dialog box for the desired module block as follows:

    • For a module in a Table Data widget, double-click the module or right-click the module and select View Details.
    • For a module in a State Tables view, click View Details.
    • For a block in the Logic View, right-click the block to view and select View > Details.
    • For a module in the Logic View Activities tree, right-click the module and select View Details.
    • For a module in the BACnet Exposed widget, right-click the module and select View Details.

    The Details dialog box appears with the data for the module or block or state selection modules. A table of attributes/parameters appears in the left pane of the view, and tables of inputs and outputs appear in the right pane of the view.

    The splitter bar between the panes has left and right arrows allowing you to achieve the desired view. Click the arrows to show or hide the panes. If you click the splitter bar and drag it to the desired location, clicking the left or right arrows returns the view to the location you moved the splitter bar. Clicking the left or right arrows a second time shows and hides the entire pane.

    The Details dialog box retains the previously displayed view. If you closed the right panel the last time you accessed the dialog box, the panel is hidden the next time you open the dialog box. Click the arrows on the splitter bar to restore the inputs and outputs panel.

    If there are no inputs and outputs for a module (as is commonly the case for Network Inputs), the right panel appears hidden and cannot be opened regardless of the previously displayed view.

    If there are BACnet Exposed AV outputs for a module or block, you can double-click or right-click the output and view or modify the details of the output.

  2. Click Edit.
  3. Make changes to the attribute/parameter, input, and output data using the fieldes and drop-down menus and click Apply.
    • To prevent losing modifications to your input data after a device restart, make sure to select the Default check box under Restart Options.
    • Select True from the drop-down menu in the BACnet Exposed column to expose inputs and outputs for BACnet systems, if they are not already configured to the desired setting by default.

      For any BACnet Exposed analog value output, double-click or right-click the output to view and modify details.

  4. Click Close.
  • If you change the enumeration set for an input or output associated with a binary object, the enumeration set for the binary object is also updated if the set exists in the Two State enumeration set list. Otherwise, the binary object’s enumeration set defaults to the Inactive/Active set. When this happens, the binary object’s States Text attribute is set to the Inactive/Active enumeration set instead of the set you selected.
  • When you change the units for analog values, the function of the value does not change. For all modules, the value passes, but the units do not. For example, if you change timers from seconds to minutes or hours, the function of the number does not change.
