I'm not sure but it may solve your problem. There's an example called AVI Read Write with data example in LabVIEW help (Toolkits -> VISION->Function->AVI Read Write with data example ) that allows tou to display an AVI file in a IMAQ Image and in which you can set the image number of the avi file you want to display. But for this I think you need VISION toolkit.
Hope this helps ...
thanks for your answer, it helps me yes and no. On the computer i am currentlx working, there is vision installed, but i would like to run the Vi in future on a computer without Vision, but for the moment that is exactly what i need. I modified it a little to get an offset for the starting point.
Again, thanks for the hint!
Yeah, its fairly easy...
1. Right click on the green terminal on the block diagram
2. Select Create->Property Node->Container Bounds->All elements
3. Wire a Bounds constant (or control if you want to be able to adjust it) into that property node.
I suggest adjusting the bounds at the end of the process.
Thanks for your reply
Ok, the problem that i was not able to set the hight and width, was that i used the "normal" bounds property.
But unfotunatelly that didn't solve my problem. I have attached two picutures, in the non running mode, you see the frontpanel with the active X container in whcih size i want to pay the movie, but when i run the VI, the video size enlarge up to 600x400 which is the size of movie...
Any more ideas?
Thanks Lord Chaos
