Resolve the conflict of data type of TestStand pragmatically in CVI


I'm porting a UI for the 2010 ICB/TestStand.  My problem with the badly planned spread data types defined custom.  While I can handle the MyTypes.ini and StationGlobals definitions, sequences that we are loading are originally the dialog box 'Type to the Type of conflict'.  The sequences that are loading have been created in previous versions of TestStand (3.1 and 4.0 for the most part).  The main reason why a 'conflict' is detected because the data types of the sequences can either have different indicators (for example, "modified") or updated dates.  The structure of the types are ALWAYS the same, so there is no danger by choosing the "wrong" data type  However, given that the "currently loaded" Type is one that "must" always be used, it would be great if the resolution could be resolved so that the operator never has to see the dialog box.  In our environment of manufacturing of these dialog boxes are considered errors.

There are hundreds of files in sequence that could be affected.  The process to go through each of them individually and setting data types would be impractical (really, out of the question).

I use TSUI_ApplicationMgrOpenSequenceFile() to open the sequence and can not find a way to settle the conflict resolution to automatically choose the "currently loaded.  Please let me know if there is a way to do it, and if so, provide an example.  Any other suggestions you might have would be welcome.

Thank you


(Either by the way - I meant "programmatically", not "pragmatic" in the subject heading)

I tried your suggestion and I still get the dialog box when

  • queues the IMAQ image data type

    I'm trying to run multiple queues in the same loop entering IMAQdx images from several cameras, and then save to AVI. After reading the site nor a little, I discovered that the reason why I get only the last image of each bucket, repeated on all frames in the AVI file, is that the IMAQ image data type stores only the memory location for the image, not the image itself data. However, I don't see a better solution for the queues of the actual image data. What conversion could be the fastest / are in charge of the processor the lowest?

    For each image you must initial Image space.

    You can use something like this:

    You need to add initialization camera (s) and AVI. You must add the multicamera feature. Stop recording is missing.

  • function to change the names of data type members

    I was wondering if (TestStand 4.2) contains the ability to call all referrences to a Data Type member used in a sequence will be replaced by the new name if this member DataType is renamed in the MyTypes.ini file?

    The answer is no, and it's a difficult problem, if you speak code modules written in different programming languages different sources including files and always a problem semi-difficile if you're not because of the possibility of lookupstrings appearing in places unusual or used in an unusual way.

    However, there are 2 features that exist in TestStand 4.2 which should help with this.

    (1) search/replace in files - if the old name is quite unique, it should be easy, if it is not then maybe with a clever use of regular expressions in the search string, it should still be feasible.

    (Monitor 2) - this should help you find the places that need fixing or you might have missed to make 1) above.

    Hope this helps,


  • Work with the first HP data types?

    I'm trying to get a clear understanding of the data types of HP Premium so that I can better exploit feature internal rather than copy and paste, edit, or having to retype. However, I can't find a tutorial, guide to style "quick start" or comprehensive information on this subject anywhere. Finally, I would like to do things like the following:

    (NOTE: I only list these questions in order to better explain what I'm looking for.) "There ARE no need to answer.)

    • Pass a list of expressions (sometimes solve() returns a list) in a function such as unapply() and run it on each item, rather than interpret the list as parameters
    • Precede the value of formula 1, "Y =" and then save the result in V1
    • Understanding type (x), type (X) and ('X') - I understand that X is a floating point number; x and 'X' they return all two DOM_IDENT, but are in that they also treated the calls function?  Or 'X' becomes X and then treated as a float value?
    • Is there a better way than unapply(), to replace by X-> x to a function, a function of return?
      • For example if: F1 = X-> Sin (x)
      • NOT a function: the seizure of F1 (x) returns the expression: Sin (x)
      • IS a function: unapply entry (F1 (x), x) returns the function: x-> Sin (x)

    Is anyone know if such a guide or tutorial exist, and if so, could you please point me to it?

  • Initialize the cluster with data types different (lots of data)


    I have data, which are composed of different data types. First of all, I have initialize cluster with these types of data and then "print" to light (photo). In case of photo data carries 8 characters than ja 4 floats. It was easy to initialize, but here's the question: How can I do this even if I have data that look like this (interpreter):

    floating point number

    name char [32]

    Short value [16]

    What I create loooong cluster which have a fleet of 32 characters, 16 short films? Or I can create these 'paintings' in a different way?

    THX once again


    I suggest using the table-cluster and configuration of the cluster size to match the size of your berries, then package these groups together.  In terms of storage of LabVIEW, there is no difference between a group of

    floating point number

    Name1 tank

    name2 tank


    short value1

    short value2


    and a bunch of

    floating point number

    -> cluster shipped from

    Name1 tank

    name2 tank


    -> cluster shipped from

    short value1

    short value2

    So you can use the cluster table to get the right sizes rather than individually create all these values in a single giant cluster.

  • Add/change the columns of data type (scripting)


    I am writing a script to add default columns and their values in tables. So far, for me, it is possible to add columns to an existing table in the model.

    Then, I want to add value to the data type. I discovered there is a method called getDataType(). So far, I have not found the "setter; for this property.

    Like other scripts, I started by creating a table with columns, and then using the API to read the values.

    A simplified version of my code:

    get the columns of table

    myTab var = model.getTableSet () .getByName ("T_POSITIONS");

    colArray = myTab.getElementsCollection () .toArray ();

    loop through columns

    for (i = 0; i < colArray.length; i ++) {}

    the type of var data = colArray [i] .getDataType ();

    model.getAppView () .log (colArray [i] + "a datatype" + dataType);

    colArray [i] .setDataType ("VARCHAR2 (1)");


    An error occurs when I want to run this script: could not find setDataType function in the object ID.

    I can't find the right method to add/change the datatype property.

    Any information would be appreciated.

  • ODI 12 - problem with missing data in the store column data types

    Hello world

    We have recently installed Studio 12 on Oracle RDBMS ODI. We have created some topologies, contexts and the logical architecture. We have created the necessary templates and made reverse engineering. The strange thing is when a model data store opening, we have noticed, the data types of its attributes are not displayed and cannot be selected in the drop-down list because they do not exist yet. You can see the image below.


    So the mappings are not correctly executed because on the stage of the creation of work tables CREATE script was not generated correctly. (It's something like "CREATE TABLE < name > ()")

    Anyone can give an idea what could be the reason for this and how might be solved?

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

  • using a column having the nvl char data type...

    The entity table has 4 records with 'X' account status and 42 records with account_status with null.

    When I run the query above, must be extracted all 46 records but only 42 records with only statement null is read.

    Also when I run the query below

    Select * entity where nvl(account_status,'T') = 'X '. No line is fethced.

    The account_status column is char data type.

    When I use the same type of query with a number data type column it works correctly.

  • Help with the problem of data type...

    Hi friends,

    I have a requirement. I have a warrant 2 guests (from and to). The data contained in the guests are like "Fall 2006", "spring 2006", "full of 2006", "Academic 2006"for a given year. " I have data from the year 2000 to 2008. The data type of the column duration in varchar. I have a report corresponding to this prompt. This report works well if it is not linked with the guests. If I have this tie with guests, its giving me results because in the report I gave filter as term is greater than or equal to ' fisrt_pv "(où first_pv est la variable de présentation j'ai utilisé pour mon d'invite de terme... comme second_pv sage est pour à terme rapide) and the term is less than or equal to"second_pv"."» So, if I put my guest (and) fall 2007 and (spring 2008 to) and run the report, its sends a fall 2007, Full 2000... Full2008, spring 2000... Spring 2008. It is because it is comparing the term based on letter of departure with all the other term. We know that the fall 2007 and spring 2008 are next to next semesters, is expected to see just a 2-column output. How do oracle know that?

    I have a term_number associated with this table numbered 1 to the spring of 2000, 2 Full, 3 for autumn 2000 2000, 4 for academic 2000... all the way up to academic 2008. I used this area to the command prompt to order because I want the guest to show as the spring of 2000, Full 2000, fall 2000 etc. instead of 2000 academic, University 2001... hope this field will be useful for you to analyze... I need your help to do this... If you need other info let me know... Thanks for your time n help...

    Kind regards...

    Yes. The problem is that your guests are CHAR, so the calculation "superior to" is done alphabetically rather than numerically. This digital keys.

    Create two columns to contain the term_number that match the values selected in your guests. Then the BETWEEN operator do not filter on numeric values. You can still view the CHAR values in your report, but now they will be in the range that you would expect.
