  1. With all this LLB info and Princess Bride talk, I want to use some creative license with a movie quote and say, Haha.. you fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is: Never get involved in a land war in Asia. Only slightly less well known is this: Never get involved with LLBs when a project is on the line!
  2. Thanks for the suggestion Jeffrey. Looking at the new features of LabVIEW 8 I believe that Shared Variables (Shared Variable NI Demo) will really be helpful. Using them I would think one could easily develop a single LabVIEW app that can control and monitor multiple real-time controllers with much more ease than the current requirements for using FIFOs to communicate. But if any other ideas come up using LabVIEW 7.1 to target multiple RT controllers from one interface - They are most welcome. Thanks!
  3. Hi there, Imagine having several Real-Time controllers out there connected via ethernet. I would like to monitor and control them all while running from one central location. The Communication wizard has been used to set up a web page of the user interface for each real-time system. But as the numbers increase, its kind of cumbersome just having multiple web browser windows open each showing one controller's interface. I would like to pick the brains of some folks here to see what they come up with... here's some ideas I have so far: Develop a LabVIEW or Visual Basic application that show's all the web browser windows within one application, and pick and choose which window i want to see at a certain time Develop an HTML page showing specific portions in frames or a table for example Develop custom TCP messaging protocol to publish certain data Using something like Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC), even though I understand those are more geared toward Fieldpoint. Any other ideas - maybe Im making this alot more complicated than it has to be. Thanks in advance.
  4. Thanks for moving this here. I'm starting to look around this Scripting section of the forum for my answers.
  5. Howdy folks, I dont happen to be in front of a system with LabVIEW on it, so pardon me if the answer is 'right in front of me', but I am considering developing a "Wizard" or is the proper term "Toolkit" that would generate skeleton VI's for some other developers. Perhaps something that would prompt for potential commands, prompts for parameters, etc. then it would create the loops, some wiring, etc. Maybe similar to the State Diagram Toolkit. I imagine developing some VI and placing it in the '...LV7/project' folder. I understand this would make it available as a tool for someone, yet I am curious about the steps involved in programmatically creating a VI. Would someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance! - Conrad
