Programmatically setting a value in a cluster

It sounds like http://forums.lavag.org/-t11380.html&view=findpost&p=48336' target="_blank">VIE has something internally that meets your needs. Chris describes the background process with enough detail to make it feasable with a little work.

Our internal CVT example isn't quite what you're looking for (you could do what you want with it, but it'd take some work) - I think Ben's nugget is probably your most viable option to start with, but please post back if you get stuck (there are a few other options that I'm not immediately at liberty to disclose :ninja: )

I'm currently working with LabVIEW 8.5...

Let's say I have a cluster with a bunch of controls in it: {Control0, Control1, Control2, ..., ControlN}. Is there any way to set the value of ControlX if the value of X isn't known until run time? That is the bundle nodes won't work because in the development environment, there's no way to actually know which element to wire.


You can change the values of controls embedded in a cluster by using bundles.

However, you cannot change the definition of the cluster (i.e. the definition of the

type of a control in a cluster and I guess this was actually your question.)

As for a structure, a cluster must be declared, e.g. you must define it

before you run the VI and there is no way to modify its definition programmatically.

In the initialization part of your program, you can define a very general cluster,

a cluster with all the types you could need during execution

and then use case structures to decide which control to use/modify.

Definitely not elegant but it works.

Hope this helps.
