Problem with Write/Read DIO for Programming with LABVIEW

Thanks for help last time. And I am sorry that I have to trouble you again this time.

I got problem with read/write DIO input and output when I programming. I am using PCI-DIO-96 Card and two DMM NI4060 Cards for the testing system. I have got the previous programming but a bit confused about the Task ID part for reading and writing DIO. How does this Task ID comes out, and as I want to add some more input and output for the system, how should I calculate or find out the corresponding Task ID?

Thanks for help and waiting for your reply!


Sincerely Yours,

The task ID is a parameter that is used by Labview to identify the DAQ task. You don't need to worry about that parameter at all.

To add more inputs/outputs to the system, you just need to include the extra channels on your channel list, and Labview will generate a new task ID automaticaly.

Hope this helps.

We have tried as far as we could for rectifying the error in our project,but failed in our attempt ,which we have attached with this "".

Kindly help us rectify it .

Our project title is "Self controlled energy efficient system" ,a part of which is done using labview as above.

You've posted to a very, very old thread and your question seems unrelated to it or to the DMM board.

As mentioned, this is an old thread and likely isn't the correct forum to post in.  I recommend creating a list of specific questions related to the problems you're experiencing.  As-is, your code looks executable, but I don't have any other comments, as I don't know what the problem is.  Also, if you're new to LabVIEW, I recommend some sort of training.  NI offers several courses, but there's also plenty of free material online.  Good luck!
