Hi owlowl !
Programming in LabVIEW is often confusing at the beginning. I think
that Mirroring C techniques is not a good approach of LV. Of course,
basically, there are the same functions running here and there, but
there are a lot of specificities in LV that make the language
powerfull and attractive. As you will discover, the LV community live
To start with, you should have a look at the FAQ, on this forum, and
also on http://www.yqcomputer.com/
And of course, you also need to be able to access the online labVIEW
help, which is EXCELLENT.
To come back to your problem, avoid using nested event structure, and
always use a while loop around an event structure. That will solve
most of your difficulties.
I'll try to post some example later for you.
Courage, keep wiring ! :-)
