  1. I know there was a discussion on the NI forum about execution highlighting with a similar issue. A VI "later" on the error wire was shown to be executed before a VI "earlier" on the wire. In reality, that probably didn't happen, but I guess the reason can be the same (probably something like what drjdpowell is saying). But, I know that it was answered in detail from someone from NI. Unfortunately I cannot for my life find the thread. I think it was some tcp/ip VIs or perhaps a save to text file involved.
  2. I want to give feedback, but its just so much. I did give feedback on 2.0 on a long list of issues on the beta forum but it was frustrating then to not know if there was any reason at all to give feedback. I don't recall even receiving anything that the feedback was received or anyone saying that they read the forum posts. I used 4.0 on a new small/tiny project but gave up since some simple things were not there yet (or who knows, maybe wont be) and I quickly had a new long list of issues but did not have time to document them, and I didn't know if there was any meaning at all in doing that.
  3. This has been filed as CAR 455443 see this thread: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Chart-Redraw-Issue-with-Multiple-Plots/m-p/2755616/highlight/true#M812948
  4. Hi, I hope this is the right place to post this. Please take a look at the attached VI to see an issue I'm having. If you have any ideas, please share. I managed to find a partial workaround to this issue, but the behaviour looks odd and bug-like, and sweep mode still looks very bad. Background: I wanted to use charts to create the most efficient way of displaying data, since I need to display several plots with high update frequencies but of varying sampling frequencies. Before plotting the data, it is already decimated so I will only plot as many points as I have pixels available.
  5. I tried creating a control, but no matter what I do, state 2 and 4 is not scaled. Those pictures are only offset. It seems like they are correctly offset to handle a scaling, but the scaling is not done. I tried reinstalling the Controls addon and Bitman, but the problem persists. I tried on LV 2010, -11, -13. Any ideas?
  6. Sorry for my very late reply. Forgot to check the topic and had not set up to receive emails for replies. Your zip file works. I don't remember now if there was any control templates installed in the package. Should there have been? I downloaded some templates but I don't remember them containing any "pdn" files. Perhaps that was the problem. Sorry that I don't remember anymore and cannot be of more help right now. I will surely check out your tool a bit more now.
  7. Looks like a great tool. I got it working with 2010, but 2012 and 2013 generates corrupt ctl-files. Any plans on updating support for newer LabVIEW versions?
  8. Sure, rub your shoes on the carpet and then put your finger on your co-worker's ear. That'll shock him with electrons floating in a controlled fashion in the air
  9. I have on different projects had to use Excel ActiveX. My experience is: avoid it, you will get into trouble. The troubles are not unmanageable but frustrating, especially if you need to support different versions of Excel, different languages/localisations, and even different installation options. Maybe you know that you need to use ActiveX, but if you do not, consider using for example a tab-delimited text file, which Excel can read.
  10. I've seen this behaviour on LV8.6, 8.5 and 8.2 (I'm pretty sure). When I make an exe I get the same characters you do. What I have done to fix it is just to simply restart LabVIEW and build the exe again, the It works. I have tried recompiling to, you might wan to give that a shot. I also tried removing all but English support and specify the font, but to no help. Must be a bug, but since I get this bug just when I have to deliver my exe and are under stress, I haven't looked into it further.
  11. You will need to keep the VI that opened the telnet session running (not just kept in memory). I had the same issue and found some threads here and on NI about it. To tired to explain why. Give me coffee. Try it.
  12. Try building an exe of a VI containing an "Open storage" express VI. At the Open storage node, LV will crash. I tried changing the path for the storage file to a folder with full access and using "run as administrator" on the exe, but that doesn't help. XP works fine. Can this really be true or is my LV runtime corrupt? Vista LV 8.5.1
  13. Did some :headbang: with the same bug in LV 8.5. BUG: The Cursor value is ignored and another value, many indices earlier in the array, is used Hint: If I zoom in on the graph, the set cursor is more accurate.
  14. Thanks for the reply. My begging for help made you a member, YES! Since the Visble property returned an error I haven't tried to set it to True, but now I did and I could see that although the properties return errors, some properties still do what they should. Others don't . I have tried to bypass all bad functions and still do what I need, but there seem to be too few working functions. The other tips you gave are good, I already use them. If I find a solution I will post it, but I'm leaning towards convincing my customer that its cheaper to upgrade msOffice.
