SNVT show strange icon or symbol when XIF is imported in XBuilder

Issue

When a XIF file is imported in XBuilder, one or more SNVT's show a strange icon rather than the input or output symbol and even though the SNVT is supported.

Product Line

Environment

XBuilder

XIF

SNVT

Cause

TAC XBuilder doesn't support multi line self documentation string for SNVT's

Resolution

[1] Edit the XIF file with a clear text editor such as notepad, notepad++ or jEdit

[2] Locate the SNVT name(s) that has the issue (e.g. "VAR nviMode")

[3] Delete all lines in the self documentation except from the first (Don't just place all the text on one line, as there is a max for characters on each line)

     

[4] Import the XIF file again
