Copying Parameter or Local Tag Default Values

In RSLogix 5000 software, version 18 or later, you can choose to copy parameter or local tag default values to all tags of the Add-On Instruction data type or just to specific tags. You can do so only when you are offline.

If you modify the default values of a parameter or local tag by using the Add-On Instruction Definition Editor, you can choose to copy the modified values to all of the tags of the Add-On Instruction data type by checking Copy all default values of parameters and local tags whose values were modified to all tags of this instruction type.


You can also click the copy default values icon to copy default values to all tags of the Add-On Instruction data type. The icon appears on the watch pane (as a context menu), data monitor, and logic editor when the Data Context is the Add-On Instruction’s definition.

If you want to select which specific tags and values to copy, click the arrow of the copy default values icon and choose Copy Specified Values.


The Copy Default values dialog box shows the current default values for the parameters and local tags, and the instance tags where the Add-On Instruction is used or referenced.


Check the boxes to select which values to copy to which tags, and click OK.
