  1. Thank you for your continued support Just for kicks i have taken out the SUB VI and just recreated the stuff in the subVI in loop 2. It runs now However i have created a new mess that is now causing issue I have tried to add a few states to the state machine. Of course i broke it. I will have to post the VI's some how. It is clear i am not understanding this execution. The state machine works fine with one function. I did not add any new functions just the cases for them and now im back to my initialization loop not running.
  2. A subvi is nothing more then a function so because the blinking LED is wrapped into a function labview falls on its face The reason I am annoyed and don’t understand what the problem is , to my understanding was suppose to be able to run parallel functions with ease in your post above you mentioned that as long as they are not wired together they should run independently. Now you say they are dependent on execution. That is not parallel that is concurrent Loop1 shouldn’t care what loop 2 is doing. So essentially creating a sub vi that has a continuous task is useless you are telling me because there is no way to execute it? Is that correct I thought the whole point of being a good developer was to build re-usable code in the form of functions that can be used over and over. Is that not the case for continuous functions that never complete like wave form generator or the like thanks for your reply
  3. This is what i am doing. Its just a simple state machine example project The second while loop is calling a sub VI that does nothing but blink an LED on the front panel to show the state machine did initialize Its more for looks and practice then anything. It will not execute. I know the VI runs fine on its own. Its been tested The state machine also runs fine with no issue until i try and make the LED blink I know this is dumb but i really appreciate the help Loop 1 in the Main VI This is the Sub VI in Loop 2, just for an LED blink This is Loop 2 in the main VI The Sub VI for blinking LED is the one pictured here
  4. trying now, thank you so much for your idea
  5. can anyone help? i am loosing my mind over this No matter what i do, two totally independent while loops will not execute they share only one "shared variable" I can not even comprehend why something so simple is turning out to be so difficult
  6. I tried to while loops with no wires connected what so ever. They still will not execute independently Putting a probe on the second while loop still says not executed. The only thing between them is a single shared variable of type bool Frustrated that after 2 days i cant get two while loops to execute.
  7. Thanks Much Obliged Ill give that a whirl. I have a few small functions that do some simply things like blink an LED for a status indicator. I cant put them in the main while loop because they onbiously never complete being continuous functions. Aka the LED never stops blinking so the while loop never iterates. I wanted to put it in its own loop is what i was up to.
  8. Hello I have two independent while loops i want to run in one VI Both loops run continuous tasks such as running a wave form generator or similar The second one wont start because the first has not "completed" Is there a way to have two while loops run independent in one VI? Thanks
  9. Thanks very much for your reply. I got it to work but cant even remember what i did. I will try and track it down and post for others my mistakes
  10. Thank you both, the first post is valuable the second post is what did it
  11. I am having a difficult time with while loops For example I have a task in a while loop and the condition for the while loop to stop is just a button. The while loop will never loop at my stop button because the SUB VI inside of the while loop has not completed. So for example, say i want to do something simple like a continuous task inside of my while loop Like Run a sine wave generator. The while loop will never iterate because it is waiting for the sine wave generator sub VI to "complete" or return so to speak So what signifies a function has returned to iterate the while loop if its a continuous task. I need the while loop to iterate because it will not look at my stop condition until it does. When i probe my stop condition all it does is says not executed and i assume its because its waiting for the "continuous task" to complete"
  12. Having an issue trying to connect a reference to a sub VI. I have creaed a control refnum on the front panel of the sub VI and changed its properties to type bool Then connected the control ref to a front panel terminal. When i try and connect the reference from the main to the sub vi i am getting an error that says wire conflict class.
  13. So i have taken some items from an example and of course they work just fine When i try and recreate them myself they dont.... naturally I have created a bool type refnum However when i create a property node and select value on my version of it, it gives me "value" as a variant data type In the example the property node value has type bool so it works fine I dont understand why i cant change it bool type from variant Any help? Thanks
  14. I find this hard to believe. I am unable to find any documentation on the web including youtube on what the heck a refnum is Can someone please point me towards some documentation or perhaps a quick explanation? Thanks in advance
