Fields in multiplexor message get renamed when exporting to dbc

Post by joejh » Mon 5. Apr 2021, 22:17

When I export the attached AQ_V6.sym to a dbc it renames fields in the multiplexed messages, how do I stop it from doing this. I have attached the 2 files, the AQ_V6.dbc is exported from PCAN using the sym to dbc tool.

Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for the hint.

If you mean the names of the signals with
fields in the multiplexed messages
This seems to be an an old automatism to prevent double signal names.
If a signal is used in more than one multiplexer and not in all multiplexers of the symbol, the multiplexer value is appended to the signal name.

Right now, you can't stop this behavior.
But we will investigate and correct it if necessary.

Best regards
