Default Content table


I have a question on racks.

Normally, when it enters a box to the rack, automatically adds 1 to the variable content to the rack.

My question is:

How can I do to that on entering a box on the rack, do not add one in the variable contenttable?

Hi Juan,

I am not sure why you want to do that, but it is possible on the OnEntryTrigger to set the value back with 1.

The following code written OnEntry of the warehouserack can do this:

// Set content table 1 back on entry of item.
treenode ContentTable = getvarnode(current,"contenttable");
int Bay = rackgetbayofitem(current, item);
int Level = rackgetlevelofitem(current, item);

settablenum(ContentTable, Bay, Level, gettablenum(ContentTable, Bay, Level ) - 1 );
