  1. It appears that Arrays of Enums are not handled properly, or at least not in the way I expect or would like! See the attached image for details - using JSONtext on LV 2018.
  2. I've not used the PCIe-1477, but have been using the earlier PCIe-1473 - different FPGA chip but I presume the coding is similar. If you want to code the FPGA directly, rather than using the IMAQ routines, have a look at examples such as this one, which also show how to write to/from the CameraLink serial lines. However, as @Antoine Chalons says, you do need to know the specific commands for your camera.
  3. Just to add to that, the bolded titles remain even though there were no unread posts showing in "Unread Content". However I just clicked "Mark site read", and the bold has disappeared.
  4. Using Firefox/Windows I also have several forums left bolded after reading all posts.
  5. You might also try right-clicking the cluster, and looking at Advanced/Show Hidden Element to see whether there might be controls in the cluster that are hidden. But ensegre's suggestion of copying across to a new cluster is probably easiest.
  6. So this gets a little more interesting with the output type of the DDS: 1.Following directly with a VIM causes the output to back-propagate from the VIM's default input type. 2.This does not happen if the Types Must Match is used directly, even though this is essentially the contents of the VIM. 3. Wrapping a sequence around either the DDS or the VIM causes the type to be defined correctly. 4. Putting the DDS inside its own VIM also solves the problem, but only if there is also a sequence wrapping the DDS inside - if not, then the output type from the DDS VIM is always its own default output type. In any case, here's the Default Element VIM (saved for 2012) for any who might use it. Default Element.vim
  7. Oh, very nice! I'd not wanted to use Reshape Array because of the memory re-allocation, but I didn't think of using it in a Diagram Disable Structure. if I ever meet you in person...
  8. Does anyone know of a way to create a single (default) element of an arbitrary-dimension array? I'm trying to create some Malleable VIs which have the same code for 1D-3D arrays, but have different code for floating-point vs integer arrays. A second possible use in Malleable VIs would be to Initialize a new array based on an input array. Any thoughts from anyone?
  9. Firstly, you are using a Formula Node, not a MathScript Node. But that will do what you need just fine. Secondly, look at the built-in help to explain the operators. Right click on the Formula Node, then Help, and then look for the allowed operators. You'll see the ones you need, including >> (right shift), << (left shift), & (and), ^ (exclusive or), and | (or). Note that ^ is not "to the power of". That should make completing this fairly straight-forward.
  10. This probably won't help you, but you should be using HDF5 files - it can do exactly this. H stands for Hierarchical, and it is quite straightforward to write data to multiple files, and create a "master" file which transparently links them. That works for writing as well as reading, so you can create the master file at the start, and write data to that which will be stored in separate files, or create it after writing individual files. The HDF5 library handles all of the connection, and can be as simple as I said or far more complex if needed.
  11. Not sure what this has to do with LabVIEW - perhaps you're better to ask on the Grafana website.
  12. I've started trying to use .vim files a little, and have a couple of questions: 1. Looks like a typedef doesn't match with the same structure without a typedef, correct? I would have thought that if the internal data matches, it should be ok. 2. I get this interesting mismatch between an array and a sub-array: But if the connection is the other way around, I get this error: I would have hoped that either (or both) would be ok. I'm not in the beta, so don't know if this has already changed, or is likely to?
  13. Sounds reasonable. Even NI only supports four versions for some of its modules (e.g. Vision Development Module), so I've finally jumped from 2012 to 2017. Is there a way to keep the current install available in VIPM if using LabVIEW <2013?
