DataBlock Variants enable you to specify alternate patterns for a DataBlock. The Variants can be used on input Signals (alternate stimuli) or output Signals (alternate expected responses). Usually Variants are associated with tags, which are used to select which Variant is active. One Variant is the default, which is active if no tags are active.

To create a Variant, right-click in a DataBlock and select DataBlock->Create Variant.
