OTL Syntax

IntegerTerm ToInteger(Term)


This term will return the Integer counterpart of the argument term.

Return Value

The Term returns the value, see table below.

Icons Note.png In OTX, Terms are categorized according to its return data type!
Data Type Description
Integer Returns the Integer counterpart of the argument term.


  • Boolean
    Returns 1 if true , otherwise 0 .
  • Integer
    Returns a copy of the value.
  • Float
    Returns the integer part (the digits to the left of the decimal point will be truncated and will not be rounded).
  • ByteField
    Returns the integer value of the ByteField. For interpretation of the ByteField, little endian byte order and n-bit two's complement will be used, where n is the ByteField's size multiplied by 8 (in other words: the total number of bits in the original ByteField).
  • String
    Returns the integer value of the string. The string must conform to an IntegerLiteral. If not, the TypeMismatchException is thrown.


Name Data Type Class Default Cardinality Description
Term - Term - [1] Represents the OTX term that will be converted to a new value of the Integer data type. See conversion rule descriptions above.

OTL Examples

/// Local Declarations

Integer Integer1;
Integer Integer2;
Integer Integer3;
Integer Integer4;
Integer Integer5;

/// Flow

Integer1 = ToInteger(true);
Integer2 = ToInteger(123456);
Integer3 = ToInteger(123.456);
Integer4 = ToInteger(&18 00 FF FF);
Integer5 = ToInteger("123456");
