This area describes the API functions of the object dictionary module. These functions are implemented within the source file:
The class CO_DICT is defined within
co_dict.h and is responsible for the object dictionary handling functions. The following data members are allocated in this class:
||pointer to parent node|
||pointer to first object in object dictionary|
||current number of objects in dictionary|
||maximum number of objects in dictionary|
Note: The data within this structure must never be manipulated without the corresponding class member functions. This can lead to unpredictable behavior of the node.
Attention: The access with the member functions of this class to an object entry must be done with the correct width. There is no casting of the object entry values to the requested value types.
