Val Brown Posted May 1, 2007 Report Share Posted May 1, 2007 A recent thread has raised the issue of example code illustrating the use of new features of LV8x, in particular the topic of XControls was mentioned. In that vein -- and FWIW -- I have yet to see a complete example of an XControl that implements, for instance, the functionality of a CD drive transport control panel. I mention this example because: 1. Such an instance would be a generally useful example. 2. The idea of such an instance has been mentioned in several other venues. 3. I haven't (yet) seen one -- and perhaps I've missed it so apologies in advance if one already exists and is available. 4. It SEEMS LIKE it should be a "really good thing" to use an XControl for this. 5. But, despite #4, I find myself returning to using "older controls" in a Queued Messaged Handler or Event State Machine architecture. Now perhaps it's just that I'm used to "old school" LV code, perhaps I'm just not enough "up to speed" on XControl features to get it to work well. But regardless of any of that, I still think it might be a good example -- if someone else has one. And, in any event, this is my contribution (albeit very, very small) to trying to keep a positive focus here. I've found LAVA to be very valuable and am glad that it's here. I hope to be able to be of help to others as well. Quote Link to comment
