Overview This is a simple example which shows how we can use the File I/O functions to build utilities which will dynamically build file paths based upon existing files.
Description The file path in this example is of the form "YY-MMM-DD Filename XXX" - this will auto-increment depending upon the files which already exist on disk and the current date. This is very useful when running repeated tests.
Please note that this is a simple example of utilising the File I/O functions and is not fully tested.
LabVIEW 2012 (or compatible)
Steps to Implement or Execute Code
Open the LabVIEW Project
Navigate to "Example - Create Directory and File Path.vi"
Configure File Setting and run (Run button or ctrl-R)
Create files and view generated paths (do this multiple times to see numbers increment)
Delete files to remove files and be able to generate from *000.* again
Select stop (or close the window) to stop the program (deleting or keeping the files)
