"port by case" operation does not fit on the screen

What if the "port by case" operation does not fit on the screen?

Is there any way to operate it?

If you have that many cases I would recommend using a different method. Here are some options:

Use a Table

You could create a table with one row per type and the port to be used by that type. Then you would just look up the value from the table like this:

Table("Ports")[item.Type][1]

Write some if statements

Open the code editor and use if statements to return the right port value.

if (item.Type <= 10)
	return 1;
else if(item.Type > 10 && item.Type <= 20)
	return 2;
else
	return 3;

Use a mathematical function

It's possible the port number can be derived from the item's Type using a mathematical function. For example, if Type 1-10 use port 1, Type 11-20 use 2, and Type 21-30 use 3 you could write this function:

Math.ceil(item.Type / 10)

Here's an example model with 3 routing queues using a different one of the above suggestions.

portsbytable.fsm
