(This is posted with all honesty to be as helpful to people learning about writing flows. I have shot myself in the foot so many times with stupid mistakes REPEATEDLY! After a lot of wasted time because I didn't realise something, I am posting this based on what I was doing, what I wanted to happen and what I saw happening, and the conclusions based on that.)
I know it is not a standard node, but I have found a lot of use for the
Basically it allows control of data flow. Like a traffic light. Basically STOP or GO.
Although it may be an unwritten rule, I just spent a lot of time (wasted may be a better term, but I'm not going to split hairs.) with this node and the settings I was using..
The node supports different modes to control the data flow.
You can specify letters, numbers, or the "basic"
false logic states.
Unless you are actually wanting to control the data flow of
I strongly advise you to use the
false to control the state of the node.
I was sending text through the node and had
B to start and stop the flow.
Oh the fun I had trying to work out why it wasn't doing what I expected.
Because the text that I was sending through as real data had
B in it, all sorts of fun ensued.
Or so it seems. Because when I switched to using
false, the problem went away.
Unless the data flow is actual
false signals, please save yourself a lot of grief and use those two as the on/off signals.
Likewise: If you are sending
false as the data flow, use either letters/numbers.
But suffice to say:
When switching text/numbers/alphanumeric stuff....... Use
false to switch the node.
