Communication between two Application(LV10 & LV 14 ) OOP


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

i am creating a LabVIEW Application in OOP  that communicate with two different version of LabView(10 & 14) through TCP\IP..

In procedural programming I do by converting cluster data to string(Flatten to string) but in OOP should I also use class and Flatten to string function? whether i will receive correct information.?

This does work, I have used it many times.  Anecdotally, the main issue I have run into when flattening classes to string is getting the versions correct on both sides.  If you have changed the class in one app but not another, you can get a 1403 error in certain cases (LabVIEW:  Attempted to read flattened data of a LabVIEW class. The data is corrupt. LabVIEW could not interpret the data as any valid flattened LabVIEW class.).

Even without oop NI sometimes changes the internal type information. Data from 2010 to 2014 should (probably) be unflattened fine, but 2014 to 2010 may not work at all. This KB is what I've used to handle 2014->2013 communication.

I dont know how this works with oop. However with objects I almost always add a 'flatten' and 'unflatten' for the object which generates a custom format string and never deal with the automatic stuff.

      I had some time to learn about new interfaces and finally I could implement my collection class as I had envisioned. I didn’t want to use iterable and iterator names, because I thought that would have been too bold a claim.
      The original version of the collection class was (and is) used as a collection of sequence steps. Each element can be either a sequence command (send message, wait timer, wait complete etc.) or another collection of commands (sub-sequence). That’s the reasons for the labels and search method. Otherwise it is just a fancy (Rube Goldberg) array.
      Next method is recursive and it steps through all elements in the collection. Execute is only method, which requires override.
      For now, it’s at least an exercise in new interfaces. I don’t know if it’s useful enough to be in the code repository, but I can polish it up if needed.

      Hi everybody,
       
      I'm running into something I don't really understand. Maybe you can help me here !
      I've got a LVLIB that is used as an 'Interface': it exposes public VIs which wrap around public functions of a private class (see code attached) . The class is private because I want to force the users to use the 'interface' functions.
      In one of my interface VI, I create a DVR on the private class (Interface_init). The DVR is stored into a typedef (FClass_DVR.ctl) and this typedef is the 'reference' that link all the interface public functions.
      In TestCode.vi (which is not part of the lvlib and illustrates the standard code that a user can create to use my driver), I can call my public interface functions and link them without any problem.

      But as soon as I create an indicator on that reference (to create a state-machine-context-cluster for example), my TestCode VI breaks !

      The error returned is : This VI cannot use the LabVIEW class control because of library access scope. The LabVIEW class is a private library item and can only be accessed from inside the same library or libraries contained in that library.
      I understand that the class is private. But the DVR is contained into a public control. Using an In Place structure on that DVR into TestCode would not work, since the class is private. So why is the DVR control problematic at that point ? Creating it do not breaks any access protection...
      Am I missing something ?

      Hi,
      Does anybody know the best way to make a copy of a byref object (open gds v4) at runtime and pass all the attributes values (including inherited attributes) to the new object?
      Thank you!

      I currently have a project that I am refactoring. There is a lot of coupling that is not sitting well with me due to typedefs belonging to a class, then getting bundled into another class which is then fired off as event data.
      Effectively, I have class A with a public typedef, then class B contains ClassA.typedef and then class B gets fired off in an event to class C to be handled. Class C now has a dependency on class A which is causing a lot of coupling I don't want.
      For my real world example I query a bunch of data from our MES, which results in a bunch of typedef controls on the connector panes of those VIs. Those typedefs belong to the MES class. I then want to bundle all that data into a TestConfig class and send that via an event to our Tester class. But, now our tester has a dependency on the MES.
      I see a few ways to handle this. First is move the typedefs currently in the MES class, to the TestConfig class. The MES VIs will now have the typedefs from the TestConfig class on their connector panes, but at least the dependency is the correct "direction." Or, I can move the typedefs out of classes all together, but then I am not sure the best way to organize them. Looking for how others have handled these sorts of dependencies.

      Hi everyone.
      I need help regarding LVOOP implementation. I have gone through several examples and documents on LVOOP for quite some time, and finally decided to use it in this simple application. In my project LabVIEW application communicates between a PLC(local) and a server(TCP).I have used command pattern.For the server part i have created class and methods and it runs in a separate loop(i pass messages from main process loop). my problem is how can i make my main process using the same method? In QMH and state machine i can do it easily by checking condition and queuing next action how can i implement the same using OOP?
      I have tried passing the next command in the current method. Is it the right way to do?
      I am also thinking using a while loop inside methods for checking for validating conditions is it okay to do so?
      Or should i use QMH for the main process to send commands to the server loop?
      Or am i doing it all wrong?
      Thanks.
