12.2.7.1 General ToC

The parameter set of a device (offline and online) is described by means of the DataInfo data type (available with the <GetDataInfo> method from IInstanceData (offline) and IDeviceData (online)).

DataInfo provides a description of the available data without the values. The actual values are accessible with <Read> and <Write> methods from IInstanceData (offline) and IDeviceData (online).

DataInfo provides a list of data items (member DeviceDataItems), which may represent a range of types. Some of these data items are mapped to DataVariables (see Table 68).
