  1. QUOTE (PaulG. @ Jun 1 2009, 06:16 PM) Is it a http://forums.lavag.org/Variant-To-Control-file89.html' target="_blank">typedef? Ton
  2. NI has setup a web site where you can submit ideas, I think it is a good idea to develop an idea here and then submit the idea to the NI site, so we can all vote on it. Use the mass of LAVA to provide NI with valuable feedback! Perhaps an Idea of the month/quarter contest is a good form? Ton
  3. QUOTE (David Wisti @ May 30 2009, 05:04 PM) Well legal and supported are two very different things... I think we still will see the occasional crash when we 'script'. Shouldn't we come up with a better name than script? Meta-Programming for instance? Ton
  4. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ May 30 2009, 01:25 AM) Yes I can understand, but now if I look at my RSS reader, it is quite annoying. Strange how such little things distract you. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ May 30 2009, 04:04 AM) Opening up the project integration to just two non-NI groups has produced maintenance headaches. There is no interest at all from the NI side in maintaining binary compatibility of project plugins across versions of LV. OK, what have JKI and Endevo (I assume you mean those two) done? Ton
  5. QUOTE (Michael Aivaliotis @ May 29 2009, 05:28 PM) I second that! Dany
  6. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ May 29 2009, 06:50 PM) OK AQ the guidelines of LAVA clearly state that 'CAPS ONLY' is forbidden, for once we let it pass through. Now it is so wonderful, every Q ever asked can be replied with 'scripting will help you', 'let the LabVIEW API guide you', 'You could write a script that writes the code you need'. Ton
  7. Hi all, I think that it is quite unclear on how to start a new thread for novice users. This should be made more easier (consider how Stackoverflow directly let you ask a question, or how twitter only asks you to specify the message to broadcast). On LAVA you have to hit the 'Forums' button and then select the forum to post into, followed by the quite small 'Post a new thread' option), even I find this cumbersome. The reason I bring this up is the following: Two days ago I receive a PM from a new member, asking some detailed question. I reply and say I consider this SPAM and advice him/h
  8. There is difference where DAQmx gets the 'raw' data from, it should be mentioned in the help for that function. But the I16 output is not the raw data for an E device (it is different for an M device), to go from I16 to float you should get an array from the 'Device Scaling Coefficients' that returns per channel the polynomial components for conversion from I16 to engineering units. Ton
  9. Maybe the following solution works for you? I can't test it right now, but I assume it should work. Ton
  10. The solution is quite easy, you make a normal probe and display the current time when the probe is executed. The problem is that I think that probes are not time critical for the LabVIEW compiler and parallel processes might continue to run while the probe evaluates, so I would keep the probe as simple as possible. Ton
  11. There are several options: INI-Files For this type I recommend the OpenG Variant Config tools, it allows you to easily read and write random data to a file in a human readible form XML-Files For this type I recommend the JKI XML Toolkit, it behaves like the OpenG Variant Config tools. Plain binary data You can use the binary read/write functions to store the data directly to disk, disadvantage is that if you change your datatype your files will be useless, and you cannot edit the data with an other editor There are other options as well, I usually use the OpenG or JKI routes.

  12. QUOTE (Neville D @ May 22 2009, 02:08 AM) Many thanks for all those who reply. My group mate have figured out what he needs.
  13. QUOTE (ragu @ May 20 2009, 01:42 PM) It is part of the OpenG Array Toolkit, installable with VIPM Ton
  14. QUOTE (oldskool @ May 19 2009, 04:04 PM) Is there any better method for it? any graphical help would be welcomed. many thanks.
  15. QUOTE (Norm @ May 19 2009, 08:31 AM) At the link you provided. Ton
  16. The property Top Left Visible Cell will deal with that. You define which cell is at the first position. Ton
  17. If I wish to use array to store data & take the data out to be used?
  18. Here is an 8.0 version (haven't tested it). The code looks messy but should be OK. Ton
  19. QUOTE (Norm @ May 15 2009, 10:16 PM) Does the data always start with the header? Is the header always the same size? If both answers are true your code is quite easy: Read the header and use that as the selector for a case structure, for every possible header you have a different case that reads the correct amount of bytes. QUOTE I do understand that to calculate the checksum, I've got to go (input) string to byte array and loop with an XOR to get the number. Not sure how to implement that solution, though. Microwave Dave posted some code, unfortunately it's in LV 8.6 (I'm using LV
  20. The only thing limited on the pushOK interface is that you always get a 'Action Succeeded Dialog' that you have to 'OK'. Besides PushOK there are other gateways, TamTam for $10 or another one for €70 whose name I can't remember, haven't tested them, I was pleased with PushOK enough. Remember you will need a full-blown client (like Tortoise) for tagging and branching. Ton
  21. I would advise you to use the OpenG lvzip toolkit it features an installer and is tested on all LabVIEW development OS's and targets. It includes compressing and decompressing, listing and many other features linked to zip functionality. Ton
  22. QUOTE (Mark Yedinak @ May 15 2009, 10:25 AM) Many thanks.
  23. sorry, 1 last question. if i wish for the next message to appear on a new line, is it possible?
