different symbols on the same can-id

Post by tuttoaldoc » Wed 21. Oct 2020, 14:55

Hello,
I fastly searched on the forum but I didn't find any argument similar. If I try to define 2 symbols on the same can-id symbol editor gives me an error: is it possible to do that? I'm monitor 2 different can busses where the same can-id is used.
regards

Hello,

Symbols need to be unique within a symbol file.

However, if you are using two CAN-buses at the same time, you can also work with two independent connections and assign a different symbol to each of them.

This way you can assign two different symbols to the same ID.

Best Regards

Marvin
