Get on the host PC the GPIB addresses of instruments connected to the PXI

Recommended Posts

Kello everyone!

I have some instruments which i controll over VISA.

the software has two parts: one GUI running on a computer and the program running on the PXI

to which the instruments are connected. I would like the user to be able to choose the GPIB

address of each instrument on the GUI, so i created a cluster of GPIB controls.

My problem is that while the same cluster on the software of the PXI gives the posible addresses from the

instruments connected to it, on the GUI it does not.

One easy solution is the user to write the number of each instrument and manipulate the string but i hope

there is a more "nice" way. Also if i create a shared variable it cannot be network, only single

proccess, which might play a role.

I am using Labview 2011 and windows 7

Thank you in advance.
