  • 1. dialog box problem when controlling front panel remotely
    I have encountered an issue with the Web Publishing Tool- I have a VI that calls a subvi that uses the Promt User for Input function.  When controlling the front panel from another computer I get a message saying that you "Cannot control subVI front panels remotely" and points you to the machine actually running LabView to enter the information in the Prompt User dialog box.  I set the subVI front panel to show when called, which does show the front panel of the subVI, but still get the error related to the dialog box.   Is there any way to make this work?  Am I missing something obvious?   Thanks,   Nathan
  • 2. X Y coordinates display for a cursor on a waveform (graph)
    Maybe it has been asked before, but how the heck do you make the cursor display the actual  X,Y coordinates. It seems that such simple task that is available in may other programs does not exist on Labview....   thank you
  • 3. Tip strips not working in LV 7.1
    I have added a bunch of tip strips to a LV 7.1 application and all was going well then all of a sudden things were not working.  The strips were not poping up or we flashing off very quickly.  Has any one else seen this.  Both my options and application property show that tips are enabled.   Paul

Hi Ronald,
Assuming you want to use LabVIEW with your device, if you do not have an instrument driver for it, you can always use NI-VISA for communication.  VISA is a platform independent communication protocol that is often used in cases like these.  I have linked a tutorial below which discusses VISA communication in LabVIEW via the parallel port.  I have also linked an example program that works with LabVIEW 5 and later.  To use NI-VISA, all you need is your instrument's command set, which should be located in it's user manual.  Also, make sure you install NI-VISA after you have installed LabVIEW or the VISA functions will not be installed into the LabVIEW directory.  If you have any questions, just let me know!

Thank you for replying so quickly. I don't think I explained myself very well. We don't care what computer port we use. All that we need is some NI driver to control the RFX 600 Generator from Advance Energy Industries, Inc. Please look at attachment for I/O pin details. What is the best device we can use? 
 
Sincerely,
 
Ronald Chirinos

NI doesn't have a driver and judging by the lack of responses, no regular members of the forum have one either. Unlike other instruments with a DB-25 or DB-9, the port on this instrument is not for a serial interface. The DB-25 is just a convenient way to put a whole bunch of different signals into a single connector. It would appear that you use one or more DAQ boards to control the instrument. You can get boards with analog in/analog out/digital I/O. This sort of application is way outside what constitutes an instrument driver. The 0-15V logic may require some additional circuitry. Most of the digital I/O from NI is 0-5V. I haven't done it but you can count up the number of analog input/outputs, digital I/O required, go to <a href=" http://www.**--****.com/ " target="_blank">www.ni.com</a> and select the Shop for Hardware or contact a sales engineer through the NI Web site or locally. 
Have you asked Advanced Energy for a hardware/software interface? It has been quite a while since I've had any contact with anyone there but once upon a time, they were using LabVIEW internally. Other than developing something yourself or hiring someone else to do it, that may be your best option.

Need to make a front panel where the last meassurments (one strain signal) during last 600 seconds are shown in a plot. I want the plot to draw from the right and then continously, but slowly move to the left. Have tried using the waveform graphs, but haven't got the hang of it...
