BeeEyeBye Posted January 1 Report Share Posted January 1 Hello. Is there a way to automatically control a Numeric Control with the Units Label? My experiments show it has a good manual affect when I change the units from nS to mS to S, hiding or showing the 3 lsd. I need this to happen automatically when the user scrolls the number. I need to limit a numeric control window to the 3 most significant digits no matter how large the number is by incrementing the unit label through nS, mS and S. Is there a way to use the text property node for Unit Label for this? There seems to be conflicting information. NI says it is possible here https://www.ni.com/docs/en-US/bundle/labview/page/lvhowto/numeric_units.html "You also can use the Text property to change units programmatically. The Unit Label property creates a reference that you can use with the Text properties." But when I try it an error message appears telling me that changing this property isn't allowed while the VI is running. What am I missing? Thanks for any help you can give. Quote Link to comment
