  1. Maybe you should also post this in the LabVIEW Idea Exchange to get it higher visibility.
  2. I found starting AND exiting to be much slower in 2009. Then I enabled "Disable ni.com updates in Getting Started window" and my start and exit times decreased 10x.
  3. I saw the same results when running your example. It appears to be a bug to me, but like Omar said in your last thread, maybe this is the wrong tool for the job. Have you tried using an MCL or table?
  4. It looks like it should work, but it can only set the window to the top (or bottom?). I did a little more reading after posting at msdn and it does not set z-order as simply as I expected after looking at the NI example. You could loop through your windows in reverse order setting each one to the top to get your desired order, but that might be ugly.
  5. You can set the z-order by calling SetWindowPos in User32.dll. There is an example on NI devzone. Although the example sets the z-order to the top, it is easily changed for setting a window to any level.
  6. +1 - Please don't bring that thread back.
  7. Are you refering to my post in 2006 requesting a cascading pop-up menu? Jacemdom posted code that works very well for creating pop-up menus. Context_menu.zip
  8. Is there a way to convert (both ways) the color spectrum (IMAQ ColorLearn) to a smaller format such as RGB? I'm working on a coloring matching routine using ColorLearn and ColorMatch and I would like a compact way of storing the 58 value spectrum. (Cross posted on Info-LabVIEW, and NI)
  9. Have you looked at TDMS? I do exactly what you are talking about in TDMS. You can save descriptions as properties and it won't interfere with your data. You can have mutiple pages (groups). I use three groups in my data files: hardware information, test configuration and test data. To view TDM(S) data you can use the Excel add on tool to import the data into Excel. Unfortunately, this tool can sometimes stop working (click on icon in Excel ... nothing). I wrote my own export vi that allows users to select the data of interest. And of course TDMS works well with Diadem.
  10. QUOTE (Black Pearl @ May 20 2009, 06:57 PM) I agree that usability is a key. I'd sure like to know who at NI thought it was a grand idea to share error 7 between File I/O and GPIB. "Why does my system have a GPIB error? ... Because your configuration is pointing to a file that doesn't exist." I have NEVER in 16 years had a user tell me that there was a File I/O error when an error 7 occured. I used to be bad at error handling. (I hope Brian isn't using me as the bad example.) I now use a centralized error handler with an error passing vi that makes it simple. With a central error handler, I can log errors and command things to shutdown if severe errors occur.
  11. QUOTE (newTOlabview @ May 4 2009, 02:16 PM) What Mark is asking is how is the lookup table implemented in your program? A lookup table can be created in many ways in LabVIEW. Is it a hard coded array of values? Is it stored on disk? How about a screen shot of your lookup table.
  12. What have you tried? Where is the problem? Creating a window with two string controls? Making a password control? Hashing, storing, comparing passwords? Program control after password verification? QUOTE (m037_85 @ Apr 15 2009, 01:03 PM)
  13. QUOTE (Neville D @ Mar 30 2009, 02:20 PM) Maybe Norm could update it to use mind control like the wheelchair demo at NIWEEK 2007. :thumbup:
  14. QUOTE (PaulG. @ Mar 28 2009, 08:05 PM) Many people celebrated Earth Hour by burning candles instead of using lights. If you believe that CO2 causes "Climate Change" what do you think is worse, a bunch of candles or a high effiency light bulb?
  15. Check out Darren's Blog on this subject. LabVIEW Certification: Preparing for the CLA
  16. Maybe Jack Hamilton's Robust TCP-IP VIs would help?
  17. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ Feb 25 2009, 11:15 AM) I like this idea! I would like to see the default label "(no error)" part of the error in go away.

  19. Are you using existing DAQ boards or are you purchasing new? Some DAQ boards are available as PCIe if you are purchasing new. I build my own industrial PCs with motherboards like this one. Intel DG43NB Motherboard (3) PCI (2) PCIe x1 (1) PCIe x16 (video) If you are using GPIB there is a PCIe version. QUOTE (Ben Zimmer @ Feb 18 2009, 09:04 PM)
  20. QUOTE (Tom Bress @ Feb 18 2009, 04:25 PM) Just in time for the pizza? Please don't sleep during the presentation! Maybe I'll bring my nerf gun in case anyone doses off.

I have a few lines of matlab code to find the 1st element which is larger zero in an array, but I have no idea how to convert it into LabVIEW block diagram. http://lavag.org/old_files/monthly_02_2009/post-151-1234232922.jpg' target="_blank">
