Assign Initial Value of Array of Byte

    Still very new to codesys so bear with me. I'm trying to assign an initial value to an array of bytes. I've tried a few things but i'm clearly missing something. Ultimately, i want to bring in the 8 byte data field of a CAN message and apply a bit mask with a second array to isolate the information i'm looking for. Whenever I try to assign the initial value of the array i get an error upon building that says "Erroneous initial value". I've tried typing out the individual bits, assigning in hex values using 16#FF, and just the decimal translation of the binary or hex value i need. Nothing works.

    Help please!

    RX65265: ARRAY [1..8] OF BYTE := [8 (11111111)];
    MASK: ARRAY [1..8] OF BYTE;
    PBHEX: ARRAY [1..8] OF BYTE;

    ( RX65265 := [16#D6, 16#5F, 6 (16#FF)]; )
    ( MASK := [16#0C, 7 (16#FF)]; )

    PBHEX := RX65265 AND MASK

    Have you tried:

        RX65265: ARRAY [1..8] OF BYTE := [8(2#11111111)];

    Not sure how the space is handled between the "8 (" so I removed it.

    Ultimately this should work also:

        RX65265: ARRAY [1..8] OF BYTE := [16#D6, 16#5F, 6 (16#FF)];
