OlivierL Posted August 20, 2015 Report Share Posted August 20, 2015 I heard about this problem before and personally ran into it quite a few times: DVR access don't have a timeout option which means that if the code in DVR A uses DVR B and that "by mistake", DVR B attempts to use DVR A, your code just hangs forever. I am quite surprised to see that I cannot find a post about this issue on LAVA. I could find one idea on the idea exchange but it is not very popular: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Timeout-for-In-Place-Element-Structure-with-DVR-nodes/idc-p/3181029#M31895 Are we a very small minority to use this DVR and IPE with objects and sometimes run into circular references during development? Are others actually implementing their own Semaphores manually before the IPE structure? Is there a clean and simple solution that I am not aware of to circumvent this problem? I am curious to know how people are fairing with this issue and if more people are interested, to make the suggestion from Chris more popular. Quote Link to comment
