Setting the properties of elements of façade in XControl to a VI that uses the XControl

Hi all

I'm new to XControls and I try to use them to make a generic digital indicator that fit into a matrix of waveforms of a similar measure and allow the user to display the first value of a waveform, it chooses by selecting the name of the desired channel in the waveform table. I have the XControl work, with a ring filled automatically with the NI_ChannelName of the input waveform array fields and the value of the ring being used to index the waveform table to select the appropriate data.

What I want to do next is automatically set the value of control of ring in the XControl to the value that the user has selected the last time he ran the VI that uses the indicator. However, the properties of the control ring do not seem to be accessible from the VI that uses the XControl, and none of the XControl General properties seem to be accessible from the front VI in the XControl. The value of the ring is not part of the entrance of DataIn cable waveform table, so I don't have a good method to pass data to the control of the ring outside of what is in this table of waveform. I might add the value in the waveform table, if this helps, but indicators XControl do not transmit their return DataOut appellant VI to allow me to record the user selected value.

Is there a good way to read and write the properties of façade elements in an XControl of VI that uses the XControl?

I apologize for not posting my code; the computer with LabVIEW license is having network problems at the present time. I'll post the code when I can.

Thank you!


In your State cluster typedef container, include a reference to a control of the ring.

In your vi of façade, in the case of change of Direction, create a reference to your ring and connect to a plan by which he sends out the view state.  Also be sure to write true to the status changed in the result of the Action.

In your xctl, select New-> property.  Name it after the property in the ring that you want to access.  Use the view clustered State (in your new property VI) to access the reference to the ring; son of a property node.  Change the control value in the appropriate type & connect to the property you want.

Be sure to connect the path error through everything that might cause an error.

When you drop an instance of the xctl and create a property from this node, your new property will be available.

    I found a solution! -Set the size and position of the façade with the help of the

    File > VI properties > window running Position (in category list) > custom (in position of menu drop-down).

    then just accept the current position and size (leave the boxes checked) or set values you want directly (uncheck the boxes and fill in the numbers), or physically position and size the façade and use, the "set to current location" button and press "set size" current All that is easier for you.

  • Select several Kings and set the properties for each of them

    Hi all

    I am currently working on a project on the thermal camera images. What I have to do is to define multiple regions of interest and assign specific properties such as temperature and emissivity of these Kings.

    So I was wondering:

    1 that is, possible to select several kings with a table keeping up-to-date of the Kings, the user has chosen on the front? (Or each KING might have a cluster on the front panel that contains its properties, which can be changed later.)

    2. is that possible to set specific properties such as temperature in the specfic KING, these properties and will be updated for the return on investment?

    Thank you so much and looking forward to some good ideas or tips.

    See you soon,.


    Hi all

    The attachment is what I've done now. However, instead create a .txt file to display information, it would be perfect to display the name of the KING and its properties in Control Panel before, as in the first column is 1 KING, KING 2, 3 return on investment, etc, and the other columns will be responsible for some information on the return on specific investment and its properties... Because I couldn't find something similar here, I really need your help.

    Thank you

  • How to set the properties of the EOS in the IVI driver

    I am coding a compatible driver IVI (in LabWindows/CVI) for an old GPIB instrument that does not support the EOI. To read the response device, I need to define the character of the EOS and terminate read on EOS. MAX I can correctly set the properties of communication and communicate with the device, but I do not know how to set these values in my driver. I tried if various attributes (for example with viSetAttribute (io, VI_ATTR_TERMCHAR_EN, VI_TRUE)), but still get errors (I guess I should use the incorrect session handles). How to set these properties inside the device IVI driver properly? These parameters must be active for this specific device only - all other devices on the bus use EDI. So I think that I can not just in the world, set this property on the map.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance,


    To change VISA attributes as parameters EOS via the pilot of the IVI, your application must first acquire the handle valid VISA (VISA session) or the IVisaSession interface. The first is applied when the uses of pilot IVI VISA - C API and the latest is applied to when the IVI driver uses VISA COM API. Session handle of the IVI - C (that was returned by the function _init() ) is * NO * a VISA manage so you cannot call the API C VISA with the session handle.

    I don't know if the IVI driver you are using has such a property or attribute allowing to access the handle VISA or IVisaSession interface, but for example, driver Agilent IVI COM "IO" property, which returns the reference to IVisaSession or any good VISA com interface.

  • dynamic action sets the value of the element, but not save to DB on submit

    I'm working on a page where the value of several to show only the page elements are defined using a dynamic Action.  They are set when the user selects a value in a list of selection (and is based on the value of the selection list).  Dynamic action is triggered on a list selection change event and then runs the real action "set the value.  The selection list displays the names of sales representative.  The three fields dynamically filled are the org structure (that is, their chain management).

    For the action to set the value, I use a defined Type of SQL statement:

    Select VP, DIR, MGR

    of SALES_ORG where SSR =: P20_SSR

    In the affected elements, I have fixed Type of selection to the 'item (s)"and the value of the Item (s) for 'P20_GVP, P20_DIR, P20_MGR.

    Dynamic action works fine for the display of the page (that is, when I select a sales representative in the selection list dynamic action properly updated only display value fields three).  This page is a form in which the user submits information relating to the rep.  When the page is sent, all fields are filled in a new record of DB with the exception of three that were populated dynamically above.  These fields get the values NULL.

    When the dynamic action updates the values in the three fields is - it does not set the value of session?  Why these fields don't are not taken into account in the submit other ideas > process Page?

    I use 5 APEX with Chrome on Mac (Yosemite).

    Thanks for the note.  I didn't only display the items could not be used in this way.  I think I'll take a different approach with the design; given that the org structure is in another table that I can simply refer to that by rep when necessary rather than saving the information uploaded to the page of the form.  The reason why I have not fill the screen only the points of loading the page is because I don't know what the values should be until the user selects a sales representative in the selection list.

    I'll change the design to one of the following:

    1) change the display only items of standard text field.  NOTE: if I make the text read-only field that causes other problems when loading (I get the message "violation of protection Session state").


    2) do not include org structure in the download folder and just refer to table org Rep when necessary.

    Thank you!
