  1. As my avatar would say: Missed it by THAT much!
  2. I searched for "DLL" in titles of posts to the forum on Application Builder etc, and got 0 results. Which is wrong -- I know because I have posted a topic with "DLL" in the title! What gives?
  3. I left off an important fact about what I was doing, and apparently, doing wrong. After DAQmxWriteDigitalU32, I was doing DAQmxGetWriteTotalSampPerChanGenerated, DAQmxGetWriteCurrWritePos, and DAQmxGetWriteSpaceAvail. Those diagnostics told me how the problem proceeded, but they also helped cause it. Now that I commented them out, it has run for 17 hours, whereas mean time to failure was <1 hour when the diagnostic commands were used. Ever see the movie Mystery Men? One of the heroes, Invisible Boy, has his super-power only when no one is looking. My cDAQ task can do its job, as l
  4. Thanks guys. I already went to direct connection from computer to cDAQ, and that seemed to lengthen the duration without this error - although it's so intermittent that it's hard to tell. I've never heard of NAGLE before, and on reading about it, it sounds like a likely suspect. I'll see if I can finagle something. (Hmm, I probably shouldn't pun-ish people for answering my questions!) Edit: Fin Nagle didn't do me any favors. Network traffic is 416 Kbps sent, which makes sense for my data plus a relatively small header per packet. When I watch task manager as it crashes, the fall-off
  5. I've got a cDAQ-9185 chassis with four 9477 digital output modules, connected to my computer by Ethernet, writing samples at under 3 kHz (almost 150 samples, every 50 ms). The task keeps giving error -200292 (could not write samples, not enough space) but the real problem is that samples stop being generated. And that happens when there is a long time (~100 ms) between just before my DAQmxWriteDigitalU32 statement (in CVI LabWindows) and just after. It seems that the attempted write doesn't go through until it's too late. I have "Do Not Allow Regeneration" set, for what I think are good re
  6. Just a quick idea, I didn't try to run your code. But I doubt that Excel tolerates an index less than 1. Is it possible that the count of "Shapes" is 0? Is it possible that the Sheet Index was 0, which in turn causes the count of Shapes to be 0?
  7. Wow, conditional auto-indexing in loops has been around since Labview 2012? How the heck did I not notice this?
  8. DLL functions or shared variables? Or something else? I have a Labview 2014-64 executable (or I can build a DLL) that runs one piece of equipment, the X-ray. The other engineer has a large CVI Labwindows 2015 + MS Visual Studio 2012 (C++) executable that runs everything else. I want the Labview code to be a slave of the CVI code, accepting commands to turn X-ray On or Off, reporting failures, and the like. Translating the X-ray code into C++ would be possible in principle, but not fun. Shared variables look easy, but I'm kinda scared of them. I would define all the shared variab
  9. For what it's worth, for some classifiers (PLSDA for example), I've gotten better results by using a sequence of binary classifiers, rather than just doing all-vs-all. Dunno if this applies to SVM, but I suspect it could. Might be worth the effort.
  10. After getting a PM from Xuan-Thai, I realized that if you want to sort more than two classes, my other statistical modeling post might be useful as a "prequel" to using this SVM code. That other post: Using the Multiple Discriminant Analysis (MDA) example could help you pick which two groups of classes to separate first. Then you would rinse and repeat, always separating along the most easily discernible lines. For example in the graph from my other thread that you can (depending on your browser?) partially see above, it makes sense to separate white from red-and-green first. The MDA
  11. Thanks! Sorry, I wasn't clear. I'm not trying to use a DLL in Labview. I'm trying to use a DLL (that Labview created) in C++. I read the first website on the "C Struct Hack" and tried to apply it to your advice, yielding this: int i; int len = 2, len2 = 3; int32_t datasz[2]={2,3}; double data1d[6] = { 1,2,3,11,12,13}; double aresult[2][2]; DoubleArray dataouta; DoubleArray datain; void viGet(DoubleArrayBase * result) { for (i=0; i<4; i++) aresult[i/2][i%2] = (result->element); } void viSet(DoubleArrayBase * myArray) { (myArray->dimS
  12. So I created a DLL from a Labview VI that has a 2D array input (and some scalar inputs) and some 2D array outputs. Labview creates a .h file with these lines And then it defines the 2D array arguments to my function as being of this type: "void __cdecl Linear_discrim_4dll(DoubleArray *dataObsFeat, int32_t grpAsz," etc etc. Trouble is, I have no idea how to fill out this structure so that the DLL can use it. Say for simplicity I had a 2 by 3 input called dataObsFeat with elements {1,2,3; 11,12,13}; how would I create the object with these values in C or C++ and pass it to the funct
  13. Ah, thank you! I tried this guy's advice item number 7 and it worked. A bit brute-force, but maybe that's OK. (I'm not using typedefs.)
  14. Yes it was. However my only other option for where the .chm file goes is "same as caller", which also fails.
  15. So, according to this NI document http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371361L-01/lvhowto/linking_vis_to_help_files/ It should be possible to link a .chm file into your executable so that a user can choose Help > Help for This VI. Well, I followed the advice, and no dice. Here is my LV2017-64bit attempt. In the development environment, it works fine, but in the executable Help for This VI is grayed out. The .chm file is a poor excuse, and unrelated to this VI, but never mind that, it's not the problem here. LV17helpEx.chm html_help_VI.vi test_help_html.aliases test_
  16. Supposedly there are Labview tools available at http://www.lvs-tools.co.uk/software/utilities/ But whenever I try to register or login, nothing happens. (Also, I try to think, but nothing happens.) Are there any other Labview codes that use the Windows Memory-Mapped Files functions, or should I just reinvent this wheel? By the way, here is a Microsoft document on the subject: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms810613.aspx
  17. Thanks guys! I'm downloading the matlab style package now. The primary user is me, actually, and I chose my scheme so that it's easy to ignore everything but color, which groups things nicely. It is a little more convenient for me to graph every particle on one graph, but maybe it would make better sense to have two graphs, one per location. Good idea. Thanks again.
  18. Here is a graph I made recently, which shows particle number (symbol), material (broad color family), measurement location (exact color), amplitude (X axis) and phase (Y axis). That's five dimensions in a 2D graph! There are some obvious limitations. For instance, there are only 16 symbols, so whatever you're representing by choice of symbol better not have more than 16 categories. And there are only so many colors, especially if you want them all to be ordered in a spectrum from red to violet. It gets worse when you try to have "broad color family" like I do here with reddish colors for
  19. I'd like to make true XY graphs in Excel, where each data series has its own set of X values and Y values. Unfortunately, interleaving rows of X data, Y data, X data, Y data, etc., won't do it: only the first row counts as X data. And "updating graph data" as shown in this block diagram, doesn't work like I'd hoped. That VI should be called "overwrite graph data" not just "update". Am I overlooking something in the Report Generation toolkit? Ultimately, what I really want is to print an XY graph and have the printout scale to fit the page, be oriented nicely, etc. Saving the graph as
  20. Can you post a (or two or three) typical data string(s)? Usually strings like this have a delimiter, like commas or tabs or spaces, to separate the numbers. So you could do this: I showed the example with comma for the delimiter, but other possibilities are shown above (not wired in). When you create the array type on Spreadsheet String to Array, be sure to right-click the resulting array and select Remove Dimension. Because it sounds like you're getting a 1D array, not a 2D.
  21. The github files appear to contain only a vipb file, not a vip file. I was able to build a vip file in LV2015+VI Package Manager, but no DLLs appeared. I tried installing the attached DLL files in the zip into vi.lib/oysstu/... , but when I opened the example VI in the "dense" category, it wanted a different DLL named LabVIEW-libsvm-dense.dll. I tried linking to the DLL from the zip file named LVLibSVM.dll instead, but while the broken arrow went away, it generate a 1097 error on running. (1097=problem in external code linked by Code Interface Node.) This is on Windows XP 32-bit, usin
  22. Hello Laely, sorry I didn't see this earlier. I haven't been that regular on lavag.org lately, but I'll try to show up more often for a while. I'd be happy to help, but I've only been able to make the old interface work, not the one posted by oysstu. If you download from my post#3 in this thread, then extract that zip to any folder (say C:\Laely), then open the VI in the top level folder, it should work for you. Just change the start path to your folder (e.g. C:\Laely\Color_SVM_3d Folder\Color_SVM_3d Folder\data) before running. The code is written in LV 8.5. Press the buttons Read, M
  23. The above PLS code has been corrected for one error. Below I attach the one corrected VI. Other errors might remain. PLS1.vi
  24. Thanks oysstu. I'm having the same problem as zhengenhao2. Trying to use one of the Example VIs, it asks me to locate LVlibSVM.dll, but no such file seems to exist. This is for 32-bit Labview 2014. The default path where it tries to look, is in the folder that contained the VI Package Builder, in a subfolder called .Labview - note the dot. No such subfolder exists.
