  1. QUOTE (vidur moudgil @ Aug 20 2008, 02:20 PM) Here is a quick example in LabVIEW 8.5.1 with comment on the block diagram. Hope this helps
  2. QUOTE (vidur moudgil @ Aug 20 2008, 11:25 AM) Hello, As far as I know you can not create controls/indicators dynamically. What you can do is place all the controls/indicators on the and use property nodes to hide/show only the controls/indicators corresponding to the selected case. Another way is having a tab control, and create one tab per case. I hope this helps.
  3. QUOTE (crelf @ Aug 19 2008, 06:16 PM) Ok, now I think I got one point right, you can't really compare between countries. Now I think I understand why some people consider this question inappropriate. In France, such question is asked to know 2 things : - did you have a part time job during your studies (which is neither a shame, neither a proof of hard-working)? - did you work during the summer breaks between 2 university years? BUT these things always appear on a resume (still talking for I know : France), and therefore the question is an opportunity given to the interviewed person to explain what experience he got from these small jobs. One point for you Chris, why not asking "What useful experience do you think you got for this job from your student jobs?" I have no idea of what the "credit history" can be, I don't think we have an equivalent in France.. but this is hardcore off topic :laugh:
  4. QUOTE (crelf @ Aug 19 2008, 04:24 PM) I'm surprised... I was thinking this as a fair question, maybe a bit country specific because in some countries the best universities are almost free. I was asked this question during an interview for an internship and I know that my father (who is running an alliance member company in France) often ask this kind of question, maybe not with these words but the same idea behind. Why do you think this question is not direct enough ?
  5. Wow this is all interesting but as well quite specific.. Here in Switzerland (and it's more or less the same in France) a small company can not afford an experienced LabVIEW engineer, there are so few I know 3 alliance member companies (with less than 20 employees), they generally hire engineer with short/no experienced looking for creative and fast learning people and then they teach them LabVIEW within the company. The most common hiring process is to start with a 3-5 month internship right after university working. The new comer starts with NI trainings Basic I and II and then works with an experienced developer on a project. At the end of the internship you generally know if you want to hire him or find another one. So for the intership intrview, questions about LabVIEW are more like "Have you ever heard of LabVIEW ?" If yes, what is the correct capitalization ? :laugh:
  6. QUOTE (Yair @ Aug 17 2008, 07:18 PM) I won't repeat what has been said above about how this point can help a company win projects, but it does give a fair amount of credibility inside the LabVIEW community when a company can say "all our developers are at least CLD".
  7. QUOTE (Antoine @ Jun 19 2008, 11:56 AM) Hi, I just to let you all know, I found an easy way to exactly what I wanted with a PCI 6221 board - other boards would work as well but this is the one I had available. The solution is based on a LabVIEW example "Cont Gen Voltage Wfm-Int Clk-Analog Start.vi". Thanks to all who helped on this
  8. QUOTE (Darren @ May 14 2007, 08:19 PM) By the way Darren, do you know why the MRU folder options disappeared in LV 8.5 ? Is it back in LV 8.6 ? I think it was cool and I miss it. Thanks
  9. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ Aug 15 2008, 05:29 PM) Don't be shy, go one step further and sing it with LV R&D I really like "Write in G" we sometime listen to it with a couple of "G-friends" here in Geneva !
  10. I just can't code with a music with lyrics. Only jazz and classical. When doing neat code I listen to Night on bald mountain from Mussorgsky.
  11. Life is short, drink good beer ! (advice a received from my little sister when she a teenager)
  12. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ Aug 11 2008, 01:14 AM) Wow.. after all that time "control-clicking" I didn't even now about that one , how long has it been working ? Thanks AQ, you've made my day a great day :worship: !
  13. QUOTE (jdunham @ Aug 10 2008, 01:22 AM) Thanks for the hint, I couldn't find it because I was using the "index" tab instead of the "search" tab in the LV context help. So that's IEEE extended-precision format : EXT on Windows and MacIntel have 80bits (1,15,64)
  14. QUOTE (MJE @ Aug 8 2008, 05:00 PM) That what I suspect as well but I wonder about UNIX on which MacOS is based... QUOTE (MJE @ Aug 8 2008, 05:00 PM) Easiest way to find out would be watch the memory footprint of a VI increase as you make a large array of EXT numbers on a mac system. I don't have one handy to test though... Good idea, I'll test that ! Still, that information must be available somewhere :-o, anyone knows ?
  15. Hi all, SGL have 1bit for sign, 8bits for exponent and 23bits for mantissa DBL have 1bit for sign, 11bits for exponent and 52bits for mantissa I'm looking for the same info about EXT representation and the context help says it varies on different platform. The G Programming Reference Manual says (Appendix A)this : EXT on Windows have 80bits (1,16,64) that's 81 :S EXT on PowerMacs have 128bits and are 2 DBLs tied together ((1,11,52)(1,11,52)) Is that still true, because the document seems to be quite old and I suspect MacOS platform to have changed :-o Where can I find the up-to-date information on that ? Thanks
  16. QUOTE (Aristos Queue @ Aug 7 2008, 06:33 PM) I really agree with you AQ, the keyboard shortcut "translation" from Windows to MacOS is far from natural... I use LV on both and switching from one to the other OS is not so easy ! The possibility to customize shortcut is really a great feature !! :worship: Thanks Darren for confirming it works with quick drop as well.
  17. QUOTE (Darren @ Aug 6 2008, 10:03 PM) Nice tip Darren :thumbup: , this is the first LV 8.6 occasional nugget . by the way, one question about quick drop - I haven't tried to install LV 8.6 yet - can we customize the key combination to launch it ? Thanks
  18. QUOTE (Xrockyman @ Aug 6 2008, 11:37 AM) Hello, If you put "NaN" instead of zeros it will be slightly better because "NaN" are not plotted while "zeros" are. This solution isn't perfect... I know. Hope this helps a bit EDIT : have a look http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&message.id=345656&requireLogin=False' target="_blank">here
  19. QUOTE (Norm Kirchner @ Jul 16 2008, 11:05 PM) I never really tried to use a plugin architecture in LabVIEW, but many people have and with success I think. http://forums.lavag.org/Calling-an-external-LabVIEW-VI-from-an-EXE-t3161.html' target="_blank">This thread deals with some similar problems, I hope it can help you.
  20. QUOTE (Tim_S @ Jul 16 2008, 02:05 PM) I agree with that, in my understanding, at best the upper case (with the control inside the inplace structure) is as good as the lower case but it might be less good. So if I'm correct the choice is easy to make.
  21. QUOTE (Götz Becker @ Jul 15 2008, 11:13 AM) Hi, Why such a question ? I think it's more readable when controls/indicators are outside structures. I think the rule applie for case structure but not for loops, sometines you have no other choice than putting controls/indicators inside of a loop. As regards inplace structure... I would put a control/indicator into it but this feeling is not based on a proper deduction. Maybe it's interesting to put a link to http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&message.id=191622' target="_blank">this thread on NI Forums.
