The output of a function reflects its return value, typically generated after the function's action has been completed. Depending on the nature of the function, the output can take various forms:

  • Data (string, number, integer, boolean, array, object)

  • Files

  • Images

The return value of certain function, their output, may also only indicate the success or failure of the function's exectuion, typically represented as true or false.

Utilizing output

Function output data can be utilized in many ways. It can:

  • Become input for another function: Serve as an input argument for another function to build a flow.

  • Trigger functions: Initiate the execution of one or more functions.

  • Visualize in widgets: Processed in display widgets for UI presentation.

  • Set widget behavior properties: Influence the behavior properties of a widget.

Furthermore, through function extensions, an output can automatically be:

  • Modified with custom code: Processed with custom code to generate modified data.

  • Filtered with code: Subjected to code filters to control flow interruption or continuation.

  • Recorded in InfluxDB: Automatically recorded in the InfluxDB for storage.
