Hello, Bit of an odd one and I am probably doing something fundamentally wrong however I am fairly new to OOP. Essentially I have a hierarchy of 3 items say A, B and C. I have a DD VI called "ModifyUI.vi" in each class and I am calling this VI and its parents in parrallel (Probably not a great idea but it is my end goal). After each "ModifyUI.vi" has completed doing what it needs to I would then like to collect each VI's data as they were all run in parrallel back into the initial class that called them all. I have attached an overview of what I am trying to achieve in a mockup of
I've started a project as a way of transitioning from task-based to object-oriented programming. So far, I wish I'd put the effort in sooner. OOP solves a lot of problems I spent frustrating hours considering ways to get around. Platitudes aside, I want to make sure I'm making the right choices as I learn, so that the right practices are in place beginning early in the process. I favor a hierarchical architecture similar to what's been discussed in other topics on the board, and an observation I've made as I write is that much of the code falls into two categories: abstraction layers and medi
I have a question relating to inheritance in one of my programs. When at a customer's site we have Ethernet IP available, which will ultimately be what is used for communication between a PLC and our application upon delivery. However, because I don't have ethernet IP available elsewhere, I was hoping to use TCP/IP when in the office and write a simulator to substitue for E-IP when I don't have it available . The issue is, it doesn't really make sense to have TCP/IP and ethernetIP classes both inherit from a same base class (say, communication class) because the ethernet IP drivers don't reall
