Trying to change VISA read/write synchronous state.
LabVIEW Help says to right click on the node and select the mode you want (Synchronous I/O Mode).
I right click on it, See that "Synchronous" is checked, and because it is easier or built into my mouse memory I just re-assert the click on and choose "Synchronous", except that when I do that, it changes it to Asynchronous. It behaves as if any choosing of the Synchronous I/O Mode just toggles the state, instead of actually setting the state to what you chose.
This does not seem logical to me. Am I doing this right, or is there some other problem going on here?
I see what you're saying. Any click on either of the two pull-rights toggles the current selection.
I will agree that the semantics of the menu could be better, but as a practical matter it's below my threshold
The icon changes to include the watchface glyph when the node is set to asynch, so I only right-click on it when I want to change it. And it's waaay better than back in the days of yore, when it was a global app preference (syncVISA=TRUE, IIRC).
