  1. How long did this take you? My advice is keep it simple and get it done. Clean code with good documentation. Clever will waste your time and leave you with an incomplete project that isn't fully documented. One quick comment, the "Standard State Machine.vi" has a three deep case structure in the "Update" case. Use the "select" function in the comparison palellete for a cleaner and more readable vi.

  3. QUOTE (GregG @ Jan 12 2009, 12:29 PM) No LVRT. I have DevSuite installed with LabVIEW 8.6 PDS. I never figured out what the culprit was. I sent code into NI that was causing the problem, but due to some organizational issues on my part the submission was incomplete. By the time I got my code structure fixed, I figured that NI had the problem corrected. What do you mean by scan engine?
  4. I had the same error, but it was fatal for my build. Same solution as yours. QUOTE (PeterB @ Jan 11 2009, 06:55 PM)
  5. QUOTE (zmarcoz @ Jan 4 2009, 01:26 AM) The CLAD is supposed to show that you have a good understanding of the basics of LabVIEW and the CLD shows that you are at a professional level. Don't waste your money on the exams until your LabVIEW knowledge matches the exam. You should concentrate on learning the concepts to pass the CLAD first. LabVIEW for Everyone is a good place to start. Be on the lookout for the NI seminars. There is usually one in the spring and the last two years they have given out $200 certificates towards training or certification. Have you looked for a LabVIEW users group in your area or spoken with your local NI sales representative? These can be good sources of assistance.
  6. QUOTE (zmarcoz @ Jan 3 2009, 09:34 PM) Queues, LabVIEW 2 Style Global Variables (AKA Functional Globals), Local Variables, Global Variables You've been using LabVIEW for 6 years? QUOTE (zmarcoz @ Jan 3 2009, 09:34 PM) Once again, Does Anyone want to give/sell his/her CLAD/CLD manual to a poor guy? There aren't any CLAD/CLD manuals that I know of. The best things to study are the guides that NI provides for free online. Are you refering to the LabVIEW course books? QUOTE (zmarcoz @ Jan 3 2009, 09:34 PM) (just grad., no job, using credit card to feed himself). Been there. Done that. Didn't like it! Good luck.
  7. Lenovo’s upcoming ThinkPad W700ds 17″ WUXGA with CCFL backlight and 1920 x 1200 resolution 10.6″ WXGA with white LED backlight second display and 768 x 1280 resolution Intel quad core processor along with NVIDIA Quadro mobile graphics cards 11lb (ouch!) RealTechNews.com It looks very impressive for LabVIEW/PhotoShop/CAD, but I think you would have to buy the seat next you to use it on a plane.

  9. Are your SubVI's part of your GUI? Do you want them to show on your front panel or open when called? Or, are they simply not returning the expected results when placed in your main VI. QUOTE (Sonic_Soul @ Nov 12 2008, 05:35 AM)
  10. QUOTE (ASTDan @ Nov 2 2008, 11:00 AM) How many bit is the counter and how often will you be reading it? If there is a possibility of rollover, you will need two CTRs otherwise one will suffice. But, this only matters if you need to count every pulse. (No political comments please ) If you are just measuring frequency and duty cycle this shouldn't be an issue.
  11. QUOTE (vronto31 @ Oct 23 2008, 07:12 AM) What kind of ID are you looking for? Do you want the computer name or some kind of serial number? What OS are you using? The answer is likely to be OS specific.
  12. QUOTE (gleichman @ Sep 28 2008, 09:16 PM) I see that Chris has quietly moved this thread from NI-Week 2008 to LAVA Lounge and now my comments don't make any sense.
  13. Watch out for the following scam email. It was reported today in the New York Times. QUOTE
  14. Were the Muppets at NI-Week this year? Now I'm really bummed that I didn't make it this year.
  15. QUOTE (Variant @ Sep 27 2008, 10:48 AM) What you are showing are child windows. LabVIEW does not natively support child windows, but you can create them through Windows OS calls. See this http://forums.lavag.org/Simulating-MDI-interface-in-Labview-t1071.html' target="_blank">LAVA thread for more information. I would highly recommend that you look at alternatives such as tab controls and subpanels before attempting child windows in LabVIEW.
  16. QUOTE (orko @ Sep 22 2008, 08:25 PM) Custom symbols in Tree controls and MCLs? And this feature has been in LabVIEW since 8.0? How did I miss this feature?
  17. QUOTE (george seifert @ Sep 17 2008, 08:31 AM) As written the hacked "Get Report Type.vi" outputs a "Word._Document" reference. It is relativily simple to update the 5 VIs to an Excel reference (hack the hack!).
  18. QUOTE (george seifert @ Sep 16 2008, 03:00 PM) Are you refering to http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/8D2F46628809472F862574B000534AF5' target="_blank">Getting References in Report Generation Toolkit 1.1.3 with LabVIEW 8.6? This set of VIs give access to the report reference through a hack of "Get Report Type". There are a two problems with this solution: non-standard update of the toolkit/vi.lib and it only works for Word reports. I am using Excel and I don't want to have to worry about LabVIEW updates.
  19. Who's bright idea was it to update the Report Generation Toolkit to LVOOP? To extend the old toolkit, I could grab a reference to the report (Generate Report Get Data to Modify.vi) and call whatever MS-Office methods and properties I needed. How do I add features to the new toolkit without changing vi.lib?
  20. QUOTE (Cyclothymia @ Jul 30 2008, 08:15 AM) Is the dll in the same directory as your vi? Is the path set correctly in the call library node?
  21. QUOTE (Tom Bress @ Jul 29 2008, 08:37 AM) It figures that this would be suggested by a U of M allum. At least I assume that you're an allumni and not one of the majority of Wolverine fans that only supports them because we don't have a pro football team in the Detroit area. Here's my quick rendition of the MSU flag. http://lavag.org/old_files/monthly_07_2008/post-151-1217386324.jpg' target="_blank">
  22. QUOTE (Xrockyman @ Jul 8 2008, 10:21 AM) You mean like this? Cascading Ring Control Many thanks to Jacemdom for his way cool code. :worship:
  23. QUOTE (crelf @ Jun 5 2008, 05:49 AM) I don't think so. TestStand 4.0 was released in April 2007 and it was the first version of TestStand with undo. I actually implemented my undo command a months earlier. My newest feature is a syntax checker.
  24. QUOTE (crelf @ Jun 4 2008, 03:37 PM) Yeah, there was nothing like an accidental control drag in a 20 deep case structure to make you want to hurt an NI engineer. I've recently implemented "undo" into the sequence editor of my test executive. After living without undo in LabVIEW for so many years, this should have been an obvious feature to add, but it was a user request, not my own idea. - Alan
