Generic GPOUT and GFOUT Error
I have a value of 0x1F4 (500 dec) being sent to a generic GPOUT. I am getting an error and the value isn't being sent through to the parameter so I am wondering if I have set it up incorrectly.

Have you set the Lenght of the GPOUT correctly?
If you have it to 1 Byte (default) you will not be able to send 500 and get an error.
Yes, it is set to 1 byte as I need to send a message to this ID and it has a data length of 8 bytes.
Do I have to set this up differently then?
Yes, for a 1 Byte parameter you can at most send 255.
So if you want to send a bigger value you need to have a longer parameter.
If you set it to 2 bytes you can send a value up to 65535.
If 500 is the biggest number you are sending and you want to save space in the message you could have it set to 9 bits and be ok.
Thank you, I will set it to 9 bits. Is it ok if the 1 bit is overlapped?
