Continue Processing
Determines how the chain behaves after the DFE is applied:
  • True:

    The data is passed on to the next DFE in the chain, whether or not the data was converted.

  • False:

    If the DFE converted the data that it received, the chain is terminated - no further DFEs are applied to the data.

    If the DFE did not convert the data that it received, the data is passed on to the next DFE in the chain.

Note: If the chain contains only a single DFE, the Continue Processing setting is not significant.
