I've been having problems with my feedback nodes not resetting when I stop the simulation. When I wire a value to the initializer terminal, the node simply sends the value wired to the initializer terminal, instead of storing the input value for one loop. I have seemed to get around this with putting a "while" loop around the whole VI instead of testing with a "continuous run", however if I leave subVIs like this, they hang up the VI where they are used.
What can I do to get around all this?
I don't know if I completely understand what you are trying to accomplish. Could you post a screenshot of your block diagram for reference?
If you are trying to access data from a pervious iteration of a loop in the current iteration might I suggest using shift registers. A tutorial on shift registers can be found here.
I have also included a screen shot of a block diagram demonstrating an initialized and an uninitialized shift register. Please let me know if you have any questions.
S'okay, I was simply expecting the feedback node to reset when I pressed "abort execution". I didn't realize Labview didn't differentiate between another call and another run.
The reason I'm not using shift registers is because I'm working on subVIs which themselves are not in a loop. I'll just wire up all the resets and reset everything before I test it.
Thank you, Emilie! There was also a thread on Chief Delphi that was asking about posting VIs more easily.
