  1. 1. Is Test stand is completely new programming language than LabVIEW? TestStand is not a programming language. It is a test executive. It is more like Excel in that it implements expressions and conditional logic. TestStand is combined with a language like LabVIEW, CVI, HTBasic etc... to create a test solution. These languages are invoked as steps by use of an TestStand adapter. http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/370052H-01/tsref/infotopics/adapters/ It is also possible to use a script with an executable such as Perl, Python or TCL to perform tests. 2. How to convert Test stand program to LabVIEW and LabVIEW to test stand back? Since TestStand is not really a programming language, there is no direct/simple way to convert to/from LabVIEW.
  2. Maybe this will help? Parsing HTML Table to LabVIEW 2D String http://lavag.org/topic/6483-parsing-html-table-to-labview-2d-string/
  3. I've just ordered a SAMSUNG 840 EVO 250GB. I'll try this in the i5 laptop and then go from there... Still have 96GB of ECC RAM that I want to put to use. Maybe I'll build a FreeNAS server...
  4. Pastafarian elected to local office - from the area where I grew up. Sigh... http://goo.gl/S3JsMC

  5. Perennial question for the forums, what to buy? Looking to keep costs < $900. I'd like to build up my VM and SCC skills, so I thought a desktop would be the best. I happen to have qty. 12 8GB DDR3 1066 ECC DIMMs and am thinking of building my own Xeon based desktop using a ASRock 216 WS. I'd save ~ $400 on RAM and could buy more SSD or a faster CPU. I have a 23" display and several 2TB disk drives laying around, and a 3 user Windows 7 license pack, so I only need a case, PS keyboard, mouse and cables. I've seen HP laptops with i7 processors and 1TB disk with 8GB RAM for ~$900. I've got an older i5 4GB HP laptop that runs LV OK, but I always feel like it's somehow clunking along slower than my i3 desktop I built for the kids. No amount of tuning and crapware removal seems to bring it around. My wife doesn't want another boat anchor taking up space on a table (dining room?) collecting dust and insists that laptops are the only way to go. I understand that, but at the same time don't think that I will have a positive experience trying to thrash a laptop to run virtual machines and such. Help me spend my money. Which way should I go?
  6. There's this KnowledgeBase entry about setting up your computer as a time server over on the dark side... http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/EA90C9FF24D9A041862575EE004ED415

  8. TestStand <1 Hr> - Hands On This 1 hour session introduces the concepts of NI TestStand. At the end of the session, you should be able to [/font]understand how to use NI TestStand test management software to: Create a TestStand sequence and add the frequency test step; Generate a report for your test sequence; Add tests using preconfigured step templates; Debug test sequence using the NI TestStand Sequence Editor https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-32943?nisrc=RSS-devzone-new-en
  9. I made something like this too; I posted it on the dark side... https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-19512
  10. I think it is because you have the option "create table" set to true. On the first pass of the loop, it creates the table. On the second pass, the table exists and can't be overwritten. I'm guessing you've been deleting the table between runs, or are creating a new DB each time. If you need to create the table, then compare the loop iterator to zero, and use that as the input to create table.
  11. Right on time, Mr. Bot Spammer

  12. How about the LabVIEW Syslog Protocol Reference Library? http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/5980
  13. At least the SPAM bots are punctual. 7:05 every morning...

  14. "date" is a reserved word and should not be used as a field name. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/learn-about-access-reserved-words-and-symbols-HA010341461.aspx
  15. I've been ZIP'd into a ZIPPING ZIP of ZIPness.

  16. I helped some with the old content, and would be glad to help with the spammers...
  17. Sorry, no. I was trying to separate the HTML content of spam posts from the IP.Board content (my empty post). I was looking for any kind of clue as to how the spammers are working. Some of the spam posts are edited after submission. If the topic IDs are sequential (autonumbering), they may be able to use some form of SQL injection to stuff the database via an edited post.
  18. There are some comments in the "Updates" section explaining why. I did notice in the comments that there is a similar product that is shipping: http://www.automatic.com/
  19. Have you tried to change something in the typdef other than the appearance? Maybe update the VI Description. If it worked, it could easily be automated with VI Server. It sure sounds like a bug to me...
  20. Would Pi and Arduino have a baby named Galileo? http://www.anandtech.com/show/7387/intel-announces-galileo-quark-based-arduino-compatible-developer-board
  21. The DC output scale of your transducer is 0-10V and your measured signal is < 500mV (less than 10% of rating), so I would test with a larger load. Upgrade from a 40W bulb to a 150W flood lamp
  22. Must . stop . playing . with new Apple ring tones...

  23. I recall this code from the NI forums. https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-19720 I downloaded the example and noticed that the DLL call includes the path to the file user32.dll Check the locations of the shared library in your VI. It may incorrectly include the path... From the NI help: ( http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371361J-01/lvexcodeconcepts/locations_for_shared_libraries/ ) To specify the location of a shared library, you can enter the name or path in the Library name or path text box of the Call Library Function dialog box. You can also wire the name or path to the path in input of the Call Library Function Node. Caution Do not specify the location of a system shared library, such as kernel32.dll, by path. Because LabVIEW automatically includes by-path shared libraries in build specifications, you might distribute a system shared library to another computer inadvertently. Redistributing some shared libraries, such as kernel32.dll, might cause the target computer to crash. Therefore, always specify system shared libraries by name.
  24. Lets see how the search bots are working. How do I create or print a 2D barcode ( QR code or PDF417 ) using .NET?
