Get progress when building an EXE with Application Builder API

Get progress when building an EXE with Application Builder API

Hello,

Does anyone know how to get progress when building an EXE with Application Builder API?

I am using the code below to automate my work and it would be nice to see a progress bar like when you build your application from the LV Project.

I've found a VI called "Create progressbar events.vi" but I don't know what it does and how to use it.

Thanks a lot for help.

Matthias.

Hi Matthias,

Sorry this is a little late.  "Create progressbar event.vi" creates user events for the Application Builder API to pass messages with, I would guess the normal pop-up window utilizes these events.  Below is a quick and dirty snippet example of using these events to show build status.

Hi Voky

Have you got snippet example for Installer Builder Progress Bar as well?

Thanks for the example Voky, and the question, Matthias. It's great to get a little more information about the collection of VIs in these folders.

Hi Peter,

 

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I've been busy with a new project the past few months.  I haven't used the installer builder, but poking around the AB_API folder I found something that might be of interest.

 

'.\vi.lib\AppBuilder\IB_Classes\Installer\Get_Installer.vi' looks to be a method for accessing many data members including the user events to drive the progress bar

 

cbutcher,

You're welcome, glad to share it.

 

Thanks guys,

-Voky
