  1. I take it you don't have a dedicated connection between the two devices. Things that can break the system that come to mind is the routing and if there are duplicate IP addresses on the network.
  2. I've used them in that way pre-maps leveraging variant attributes. Don't expect JSONtext to handle that use case, though.
  3. Don't forget versions, updates and patches, particularly in operating systems. For example... had a customer call me with a station that was down after a couple years of running. It looked like a UDP communication issue between two PCs. Wireshark showed the UDP message showing up at the port, but the application didn't receive it. Eventually this was tracked down to the build of Windows 7 (1609, if I recall right) can randomly turn off a setting that UDP needed to work. The "fix" involved a registry edit, but it's waiting to happen again.
  4. The least painful way managed to do this was to detect the column header was clicked on then change the background color of the header appropriately. It's not great, but users understood what was going on once they were shown it.
  5. I have to say no for applied knowledge. I think should be aware of when it is advantageous and inappropriate to use OOP, but that falls short of applied knowledge.
  6. Not familiar enough with Linux or ZeroMQ to give a specific answer, but thinking this through... Segmentation fault is the program trying to access memory it's not supposed to. Certainly been able to do that on Windows, so I don't see why can't do the same with Linux. Typically get that when working with drivers, which ZeroMQ would qualify as. Could be something like passing a pointer that is or becomes invalid, or trying to access memory that has been freed up.
  7. The site is doing a sales pitch on it's front page. That's fine all sites do that. I'm already a customer so I go to the NI site for 1) product information, 2) support, or 3) downloads. It took me poking about a bit to find what was looking for as the navigation feels almost hidden up top. Now that I've got an idea of how the layout has changed I think I'm OK and it might be more navigable. Just got to ignore everything past the top inch of main page and all should be good.
  8. Something the "supplied cables" reminded me of is that APC UPS (at least the ones I've been using) use a non-standard pinout on the DB9 for serial communication. The UPS comes with a cable with the correct pinout on each end. Any chance that's what's causing grief?
  9. Should HID start testing your sanity... Tripplite has a relay card
  10. Your Keyence representative should be able to help if you can't get it from the website. I've been in contact with multiple over the last few weeks, so I expect you would be able to get a response today.
  11. Don't know if this will work with your design, but... I have a similar situation of class reference to itself. The code is the base object for plugins and gets compiled into a packed library. The class has a vit inside of it that the child uses to create a version that it sets in a property. The property is strictly typed to the vit and gets called by the parent. To make this work I had to put a control of the reference in the library the parent class is in. This is the way I was able to get around a reference to a class within itself.
  12. The only time I consistently use Defer Panel Updates is with a TreeView control, which is slow to update the display (particularly when creating hundreds of rows). Another strategy is to check for data change to see if an update is needed. But, really, it depends on what you're doing. A configuration/editing screen is driven by user actions, so one event trips multiple updates to the UI and Defer Panel Updates can be useful. A screen showing periodic data may update each message with no issues, or checks if anything needs to be updated and when it does may need to defer updates to do so quickly. Though if you have something like an informational/debug screen that is only shown when requested then might not update the front panel unless it's visible. Could put that as you've done the cost-benefit analysis and the improvement is not justified.
  13. Looks like all the PYNQ boards are programmable in Python. There was a question on NI Community about this.
  14. Working fine in 2015 (latest I've got installed).
  15. I don't have the vision addon installed, so can't point you to a specific VI. I recall there being an example that performed a histogram of the colors (in RGB?). You may need to open up various vision examples as it might not specifically state it was a histogram example.
  16. I think you're looking for annotations.
  17. Stopped having that issue once went to using win32 calls to make window frontmost and always on top (which has created new issues). Seems like would either hide the window while the file dialog was running or make the VI not modal while the file dialog was called.
  18. Fortran 77 still was taught in at least one college in 1993 on green-and-black and amber-and-black terminals. Was even a mandatory class for freshmen.
  19. I've gotten a test bench of 1 MS/sec of 32-bit data (24-bits plus 8-bits channel identifier) across FPGA->RT->Windows using DMA channel to RT FIFO to TCP and let it run overnight without drop of any data. Buffer was set to maximum size of U32. Now that was with a cRIO rather than a myRIO. Are you using NI's recommendations for best practices? Particularly the one where you check for available (request 0 samples) and then read all is a good way to read on the RT side. If you wait until the buffer is full then the FPGA can (and almost certainly will) overwrite before host side can service an interrupt.
  20. The DMA FIFO is what you're looking for with the data transfer.
  21. That error looks suspiciously like one I was getting when trying to uninstall software after something got messed up on my system (MSI files for uninstall were missing). There is (at least currently) a way around the package manager as listed in the knowledgebase article: https://knowledge.ni.com/KnowledgeArticleDetails?id=kA00Z000000P70TSAS&l=en-US in the section "Software installed originally without NI Package Manager". This brings up the old interface which has the repair option. This was able to fix a bunch of installations which I couldn't uninstall before repairing. There are error logs that NI tech support had me send them which read pretty good for debugging the installer issue: https://knowledge.ni.com/KnowledgeArticleDetails?id=kA00Z000000P6FcSAK&l=en-US
  22. The way I read the OP was first wanting to know if it was possible to create a bar graph (which does seem a strange question as the picture looks like a screenshot of a VI). If it's past that and getting the coordinates, then that's a mouse click event and an invoke node.
  23. There are 3rd party controls that do this. It's also possible in LabVIEW native controls, but it's a bit of work. Been quite a while, but seem to recall fill to zero and a property node to set custom axis labels was involved.
  24. You would need to associate the plot with the second Y axis: https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/associating-a-plot-with-a-specific-y-axis-on-a-multiple-y-axis/td-p/63688?profile.language=en
  25. Directions on how to create two Y axes is at: http://www.ni.com/example/25089/en/. Directions on annotations is at: https://knowledge.ni.com/KnowledgeArticleDetails?id=kA00Z0000019QhmSAE&l=en-US
