Obtaining associated Control references from ControlTerminal References

Recommended Posts

I have a sequence structure that I am using as a container for a number of unconnected controls and indicators (they are interacted with by reference only).

I am trying to programmatically obtain the references to these controls, but I can only seem to get the references to the block diagram ControlTerminals using the Traverse for Gobjects VI. Does anyone know how I can obtain those associated control references?

A property of ControlTerminal is Control which gives you a reference to the front panel item.

In your case you would need to change the class specifier constant being fed into the to more specific class to ControlTerminal (GObject > Terminal > Control Terminal) and then get the front panel reference from another property node before getting the label's text.

Sweet, thanks! That worked. I was racking my brain trying to find the property for the control reference. I didn't realise that the Traverse for G objects output reference was not typed to ControlTerminal.
