This DataTypeis used to provide the metadata for the relation between a field in a DataSetMessageand a target Variablein a DataSetReader. The FieldTargetDataTypeis formally defined in Table 44.

Table 44– FieldTargetDataType Structure

Type

Description

FieldTargetDataType

Structure

dataSetFieldId

Guid

The unique ID of the field in the DataSet. The fields and their unique IDs are defined in the DataSetMetaData Structure.

receiverIndexRange

NumericRange

Index range used to extract parts of an array out of the received data.

It is used to identify a single element of an array, or a single range of indexes for arrays for the received DataSetfield. If a range of elements is specified, the values are returned as a composite. The first element is identified by index 0 (zero). The NumericRangetype is defined in OPC 10000-4.

This parameter is null if the specified Attribute is not an array. However, if the specified Attribute is an array, and this parameter is null, then the complete array is used.

The resulting data array size of this NumericRangeshall match the resulting data array size of the writeIndexRange NumericRangesetting.

targetNodeId

NodeId

The NodeIdof the Variablewhere to write the received DataSetMessagefield value to.

attributeId

IntegerId

Id of the Attributeto write e.g. the Value Attribute. This shall be a valid AttributeId.

The Attributes are defined in OPC 10000-3. The IntegerId DataType is defined in OPC 10000-4. The IntegerIdsfor the Attributesare defined in OPC 10000-6.

writeIndexRange

NumericRange

The index range used for writing received data to the target node.

It is used to identify a single element of an array, or a single range of indexes for arrays for the write operation to the target Node. If a range of elements is specified, the values are written as a composite. The first element is identified by index 0 (zero). The NumericRangetype is defined in OPC 10000-4.

This parameter is null if the specified Attributeis not an array. However, if the specified Attributeis an array, and this parameter is null, then the complete array is used.

overrideValueHandling

OverrideValueHandling

The value is used to define the override value handling behaviour if the State of the DataSetReaderis not Operational_2 or if the corresponding field in the DataSetcontains a Bad StatusCode.

The handling of the OverrideValuein different scenarios is defined in 6.2.10.

The OverrideValueHandlingenumeration DataTypeis defined in 6.2.9.2.4.

overrideValue

Variant

This value is used if the OverrideValueHandling is set to OverrideValue_2and the State of the DataSetReaderis not Operational_2 or if the corresponding field in the DataSetcontains a Bad StatusCode.

The handling of the OverrideValuein different scenarios is defined in 6.2.10.

This Value shall match the DataTypeof the target Node.
