Graphical Block Map

The Graphical Block Map can be accessed by either:


The Graphical Block Map is a graphical overview of block usage, showing configuration aspects and issues at a glance. The blocks are presented as a color-coded table indicating whether each block is used, tagged, has a source, and other similar information. Every block in the Graphical Block Map is linked to its Block Index, which lists each place it is referenced in your INFI 90 system.

Explanation of the Graphical Block Map color legend:

Green block.jpg This block is used.
Red block.jpg This block is used in configuration but the source does not exist (or has not been built.)
Orange block.jpg The block is used on a graphic, but not sourced in configuration.
Pink block.jpg This block is referenced in a database, but not sourced in configuration.
Purple block.jpg This block does not have a source, but is sourced somewhere in the system.
Blue border.jpg The block is exported, but not tagged.
Black border.jpg The block is tagged and exported.
Red border.jpg The block is tagged but not exception reported.
Yellow block.jpg The block is tagged, but unused.
Unused.jpg The block is completely unused.

Ideally, what you want to see for your blocks is this:

This block is green with a black border, indicating that it is tagged, exported and used.

The Graphical Block Map allows you to see where blocks are available for insertion of a large function code. The list of Used and Unused Blocks is complementary. They consist of ranges of blocks, separated by commas, that indicate where gaps exist in block usage. They are designed to be printed on one page for easy reference when inserting logic in a module.
