change path of .NET file event during run-time

Recommended Posts

Hi lava,

I hope you can help me with my problem.

 

The problem that I want to solve (in a proper way) is the following: 

I have a list of all the *.dat files in a folder. I want this list to update every time a new *.dat file i created in that folder.

I don't want to pool the folder constantly so I have solved this problem by using a dynamic event from a .NET action. This is all nice and great.

My problem is, that if I change the folder, my dynamic event does not execute when a new file is added to the new folder.

 

I have attached two snippets of the main part of the code. 

 

In the mainVI, I first setup some events. The events are then written to a global variable. It is this global that I use when broadcasting the event.

In the watch_dir.VI the .NET event is setup. I look for files that are created, deleted, changed or renamed. (Most of the code is from Steve Chandler's nugget: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/My-First-Nugget-Directory-Changed-Event/m-p/1407552)

I have tried initializing the different events when the folder is changed,but that does not seem to fix the problem. I hope I have made myself clear, but please dont hesitate in asking questions. 

 

I could off course just pool the number of files in the folder or something like that, but that doesn't seem right to me.

 

I hope you can help me.
