  • File txt to ASCII binary (MATLAB equivalent?)


    I just started using LabView two days ago and need help with which is probably very basic. My goal is to take a .txt file that contains some message (letters, numbers, etc.) and convert it to a stream series of bits. In MATLAB, I would do it like:

    Temp = textread ('CommsInput.txt', '%1s', 'spaces', ");    % load the txt file.
    text = char (temp);                                                               % Convert character cells
    y = zeros (length (text) * 8, 1);                                                % initialization vector o/p
    for n = 1:1:length (text)
    a = ABS (Text (n));                                                                   % find the number corresponding to each character ASCII
    I = 8 *(n-1) + 1;                                                                     % define indexing for output vector
    y(i:i+7,1) = (de2bi (a, 8))';                                                      % convert this number to a binary number of 8 bits (ANSII)

    In the end, it would give me a (8 * N x 1) vector where N is the number of characters in the text file.

    From there, I would be able to easily access every bit to create a signal Pulse Position Modulation, I want to use for the laser communication.

    If anyone has any advice on how to implement this in LabView 8.2, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

    The file extension is not relevant. Each file is ultimately binary. Even text files. If I understand the objective, I believe that one of these two approaches will you need:

    It is a text file that contained the text "ABCDEF".

  • Conversion of jpg to ASCII for code output ZPL-Zebra printer

    I print on a Zebra ZM400 using the ZPL code. I can upload images to the printer using Zebra utilities and I remember these images to print on a label, but I have to be able to download pictures using the ZPL code (using the ~ DG command). The ~ DG command needs the JPG image to ASCII format. I have other images that were already converted to ASCII (by someone else) that I am able to print, so I know what I do works as expected, however my problem is that I have new images which must be converted to ASCII format required and I don't know how to do this.

    So, my goal is to print a picture on a Zebra printer, but my real question is to know how to convert a JPG image to ASCII format (for the Zebra printer).

    Let me know if you need more information.

    Thank you

    Hi Emily,.

    Unfortunately, I have not well understand how this has been done before that the person who had previously completed a conversion is no longer works for our company.

    The ZM400 printer uses ZPL II of Zebra language to create/format of labels and the printer setup/order. Instead of download chart (~ DG), I am now using the command object download (~ DY), located in the ZPL II (182 p) programming guide. This allowed me to use a. File PNG rather than JPG, which was easier to work with.

    I was able to use a modified version of your suggested method to make it work. The ~ DY command takes a parameter (data) which is a 'hexadecimal ASCII string defining the image', which is defined as: "the data string sets the image and is a hexadecimal representation of ASCII image. Each character represents a horizontal nibble by 4 points. "So the method you suggested is exactly what I had to do, however I didn't say that it must be represented in hexadecimal ASCII code.

    I converted the binary file reads (of the PNG) data into a byte array, then made a (padded two-digit in hexadecimal) number of channels within a loop conversion For to give the ASCII representation of the binary data. This gives a hexadecimal representation of ASCII to binary data. VI is attached.

    Thanks for your help!

    I encountered another problem: the PNG files took an eternity for the printer load into memory when printing (compared to the same image in Zebra. GRF format). I solved this re-reading the file saved on the printer, where it is native. GRF format (using the ^ HG command), then re-recording this output (now in the ZPL code formatted) to the printer. I guess there is a way to convert directly to the. Format of the GRF, but for now it does not work in my case.

    Thanks again!

  • [xml] ascii 172 added


    I started by pulling on the text of a textFrame who had ' LICENSE '.  I kept this string to an xml object (name of the variable 'x') and then he wrote in a XML as follows:

    filePath.encoding = 'UTF8 '; ('w');

    filePath.write (x.toXMLString ());

    filePath.close ();

    Now when I look in the xml file, it is the character of real copyright symbol instead of & # 1-6-9;  (I added spaces, so I hope that will not be converted in the message).

    Seems that my file xml contains a copyright symbol character, then if I pull that data and store for an XML object in InDesign, and then it adds character ASCII 172 before this symbol of copyright law.  If I put in a textFrame, you don't see this character (ASCII 172) but if you use the arrow keys you can tell it's there.

    Any ideas on why 172 ASCII is added before the copyright symbol?  Furthermore, I use InDesign CS5.5 on OS X Lion.

    Here is an example of xml data that was saved in the xml file:

    <? XML version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"? >

    < cbAttrs version = "1.0" >

    < copyright id = '10-1' w '69.16' = h = "32.1990625000001" x = "-57.2081831359861" y = "243.181297317146" > © LICENSING < / copyright >

    < / cbAttrs >

    And here is the code I use to extract the data from the xml file:

    var xmlPath = File('/Path/to/xml');

    If ( ('r')) {}

    xmlText var = ();

    xmlPath.close ();

    var x = XML (xmlText);


    var a = x.copyright.toString ();

    $.writeln (a [0] .charCodeAt ());

    $.writeln (a);

    Gives me:


    ¬ © LICENSES

    Thanks for looking at my questions.

    Here's the problem:

    filePath.encoding = 'UTF8 ';

    .. because is out of reach for the 7-bit ASCII, it gets the tag as a two byte character UTF8 (see

    At the moment is a mystery to me why you would get the area code is not 172, instead of the correct code of the UTF8 0xC2 (194); Perhaps the resulting binary value converted elsewhere in your workflow or with copy - paste, or something.

    So, at least, your input XML file is created correctly. What remains, that is why he reimport fails to recognize the UTF8 specification in the first line. You can try if adding the code to your routine of reading line solves it.

  • Layer control sets in the objects of EDA

    We use AutoVue in a process to review the design of Library objects because they are created. We have a lot (10,000 inhabitants) of these elements to be considered and would like to make the experience of the user as simple as possible. One of the heavier parts of the review process is to change the visibility of the layers. All these objects have a common set of layers (even the names and the order). We are trying to determine if there is a way to simplify the visibility of the layer. Here are a few thoughts we have and are looking for suggestions and alternatives.

    Option 1

    We know that multiple layer sets could be created where each defined controls the visibility of a set of layers. Sets of layers could then be stored in a file of markup. We know that the file control the relationship between the object being viewed and the file mark. We could change / programmatically update this file for each of the objects have in the same markup file. This seems to be the kind of a hack and has a number of holes that don't make it not very desirable.

    Option 2

    We know that the user interface can be changed according to the user. We believe that if we could create any menu items or need icons that set the visibility for the points of view of the users, it would make the process much more elegant and less tedious. Several questions come to mind in this option. The user interface can be modified to add additional menu or icons selection? An icon or a menu item to set the visibility of the layer? The method by which is running AutoVue allows to control the ultimate appearance and options that are available to the user? If we were to pursue this option, is there a recipe already in place that can guide us in the process?

    All responses are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Charlie,

    Please specify each of your EDA files have the same set of layers with the same names in the same order - it is crucial if you want to try to address the issue in a program or a batch way.

    As we talked about earlier today in a separate thread, Option #1 (creating a single markup with saved views file and linking this markup to several core files) can cause problems. As you know, when AutoVue is not integrated with a DMS/PLM, the rate of increase is managed on the server AutoVue in the file and then this file is ASCII and can be changed (not recommended), don't forget not that the mapping depends on exactly where it was opened the base file to and what protocol is used to open this file. So, if the same file can be opened in 2 different ways (for example once there of the computer of the user and once from a web URL), the markup will not automatically be bound at the same time. Option #1 can be too unpredictable.

    This is why I would recommend Option #2. I will ask the experts to chime if they disagree, but I think that what you want to achieve is possible via the AutoVue API and can be broken down into 3 parts:

    1. write the code base to turn specific layers
    2 packing this code as a 'VueAction' custom so that it can be called as a menu item or custom toolbar
    3. customization of the graphical user interface to expose this point of menu or toolbar

    Part 1 (code of activation/deactivation of specific layers) should be relatively easy. The AutoVue API includes a class called "com.cimmetry.core.PAN_LAYER", which represents a layer in a file (including ADM files). With the API, you can:
    -The list of layers in the file running (VueBean.getLayersState)
    Toggle layers as required (PAN_LAYER.setState (PAN_LAYER. STATE_ON) or PAN_LAYER.setState (PAN_LAYER. STATE_OFF))
    Re-apply all of the layer update (VueBean.setLayersState)

    Part 2 (construction of a custom VueAction) is a little more complex, but it is explained very well in the new API Programmer's ( supplied with AutoVue 20.1.0 Guide. I recommend you to read the pages 20-22 and 30-35. You want to take the code from part 1 and package in the 'performer' of your custom VueAction method.

    Part 3 (customization of the GUI) should also be relatively easy and are discussed on pages 62-68, the Setup Guide and Configuration (

    But rather than just saying 'read the docs', we now also provide an example prepared in advance of a customized with AutoVue 20.1.0 VueAction Client/Server deployment (I think that it is an optional component during installation). If you have included the installation, you will have the \examples\VueActionSample of your server installation folder. You should be able to use it as a reference to add your own custom in the applet VueAction.

    There is another part that I had not included. In our separate thread earlier today, I think you mentioned you wanted only does not provide this customization of GUI for some users. If you want to control the GUI based on the user/group/role/etc, it's possible, but it will be to you to determine the user/group/role/etc and the applet JVue of script accordingly (i.e. dynamically the cmdlet to set the GUIFILE script parameter, or use the JVue.setGUI method).

    Hope this helps at first.

    Thank you

    EDIT: If you prefer to automate the configuration of the layer as soon as the file is loaded - rather than having it as a custom menu or toolbar item - you can do that as well and it is much easier. In this case you always go through part 1 and write code to set the desired channels and implement you it as a 2nd applet as described in Oracle KM notes 754612.1 (

  • Creating art ascii in Illustrator


    This is my first time posting and I hope you can help me.

    I want to color of text letters so that by far the colorful letters resemble a picture. Example perfect is ascii art - each character is colorful properly so that together, he portrayed an image any.

    My question is this: How do color you each letter to a picture that I have already created? I tried to play with opacity masks but which colors the text as well as the background [text]. I want only the text you want to color.

    Can you please tell me how I can achieve this?

    Thank you.

    The color work is grouped. (Only necessary if it involves several objects).

    The text object is black and in front of the work of the group.

    Select the text object and the group. Range of transparency: make the opacity mask. Mode: Normal. Opacity: 100%. Clip box. Invert the mask checkbox on.

    Try to change the placement of left upper page to centered. It seems that the page could be the same as the size of the sheet and does not include the lost funds, but you have a bleeding in the dialog box, so outside the substantive area lost is the upper left corner. Centering would set the purge symmetrically around the page and cut it.

    OR, you can remove the purge of the dialog box or print on a larger sheet and trim.

  • Occasional exception error occurs during the execution of a COM object.

    I am running Coldfusion 8 and search of addresses through the Mailroom Satori software database architect.

    6 times out of 10 the address returned, but other attempts to achieve what follows:

    An exception occurred when executing a COM method

    The cause of this exception was: AutomationException: 0 x 80040400 - Unknown exception in SearchAddress. in MRTKUKLib.MRTKUKPostCode.1

    I reinstalled the software architect and ensured that the COM objects are registered. I am puzzled, how it can work frequently, but then sometimes fail. I'm running a high volume website, this could be a problem?


    It could also be choking on something in the data that you send to the COM object. I would surround the code that calls the COM object with an error handler that automatically sends you the address information that you send to the mailroom architect when he chokes. See if you notice any model. Could be a number sign in the address or an apostrophe wandering? or maybe even a few non-ASCII text?

  • iPhone 7 - camera can not focus/blur distant objects

    Recently got my iPhone 7 two weeks ago, when he was released. My camera was working fine but for the last two days, when I try to focus on a person/object far away, it remains unclear. It is not just sharpen or focus on the person/object. It's only focus on something that is very close to the camera. You're not sure if it is a new problem...? Someone knows how to fix this? Thank you.

    Hey jdcn204,

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple. I can see from your post that you are having problems with your iPhone 7 camera being fuzzy or blurry when you try to take pictures. I understand how it is important for the camera to work as expected and want to do all that we can to remedy to this. I have included a link below which has a section focused on the ways to solve this class under your photos are blurry or out of focus:

    See you soon.

  • Smooth against a move sharp objects on the screen


    I have a number of applications that show the following behavior: when I click on an object on the display on the screen, the object moves * gently * to its position to another, predetermined by the application, position.

    I see this problem on my iMac.

    When I run the same applications on my MacBook Air the moving of objects from home position in the end still happens but in a * sudden * way - i.e. the object jumps abruptly starting position for the finals. The sweetness of the movement I see on the iMac is no longer exists.

    I love soft travel.

    Applications do not provide any parameter to control the way objects move (gently or brutally), I guess it is somehow controlled by the operating system. A parameter is defined differently on the iMac and the MacBook Air.

    (Both machines run El Capitan 10.11.6)

    Someone has an idea of what could be this setting? Or in any other way, I can have a good moving objects on the MacBook Air?

    Thanks in advance.

    FWIW, I do not know why your etrecheck report has been deleted, but you try to run applications on a 4 GB machine too. You should limit the number of objects, connect, and the number of programs you are running at the same time.

  • Trimming of a fast moving in a video object.

    Hello. I hope that my question is not too complicated, but I want to shoot video of a small, fast moving object (a RC plane) on my iPhone of 6 to 4K, then "reframe" video for an enlarged image of the object. A plane RC zooms in on a camcorder recording can be extremely difficult, that's why I want to try cropping. I tried cropping videos in iMovie, but it does not reach the desired effect that the plane did not stay always in the same place, even on video with zoom out.

    Is it possible to crop a video, and then move the 'culture' smoothly to track an object, so it don't go out of the frame? I've always had problems saving objects moving quickly zoomed in I always loose track of them so I hope someone here has done this before and knows how to do.

    I just got my first Mac and I really enjoy free programs that are installed.

    Thank you


    It is not really possible to do with iMovie and difficult even with professional video editors.

    I would put the k 4 clip in the timeline panel as the first clip in order to put the project to 4 k.  I would try to stabilize it but this will very probably stabilize background rather than the position of the aircraft in the framework.  You can crop the video but the only way to move from his position is by using the Ken Burns effect, but it does not seem possible to use keyframes to follow the plan (as you can with picture in picture).  You can split the clip into parts and apply individual effects of Ken Burns to everyone, but it will be awfully tedious if the movement of the aircraft is fast and jerky.

    To do this you must use a professional editor like FCPX, for which there are plugins from third party that can follow an object in a frame.   Even then, it is not easy to get a good result.


  • How drag and drop a picture into a shape of the object?

    On my old Lion system that I used to be able to drag a picture from iphoto in the shape of the object open in Pages.  I can't be able to do more.  The system changed?  I tried to use Inspector (under help), but it won't let me access the file of the photo on the right.

    You can drag and drop a picture in a form in v4.3 Pages ' 09, but this can be done in any version of v5 Pages. Quite different applications, as well as more recent Pages has lost about 100 features that were in its antecedent.

    Check if you have Pages ' 09 v4.3 in your Applications: iWork ' 09 file. If so, use it.

    Pages v5 requires that you select a shape, and then on the Image tab in the right panel, you choose Image, scale to fill fill, and then select your image for the background. You cannot select this image from the inside, but you can add text to the form that will appear on your image.

    I am email all ready to send and you blocked it because: "there are non-ASCII characters in the local part of the address of the recipient. It is not yet supported. If please change this address and try again. "whatever that means?

    You probably use the accented characters in the e-mail address. The server you are trying to send through cannot process non-ASCII characters.

    From the Wikipedia article - "ASCII":

    The encoded characters are numbers 0 to 9, letters a to z, uppercase letters from A to Z, basic punctuation symbols, control codes that originated with the teletypes and space.

    It is a common problem with some older servers. Check the email address. You may be able to send if you change just accentuated with no accented characters. No guarantee.
    If the accents are necessary, you will need to find another server to use. (gmail?)
