Data entry range ignored by numeric control



I am coding an application on LabView. One of the control accessible by the user is a numeric control situated on the front panel. I would like the value of this control contained in a certain range, say 0 and 100. I accessed the properties of the control and changed the maximum and minimum values in the "Data entry" tab. But when I run the software and try to change the value of this control, the accepted range is 0 to 50. For example, if I change it to 70, it coerces it down to 50.

I tried to change "Response to value outside limits" from coerce to ignore but it did not help.

I also tried to set the maximal accepted value of this control, connecting the constant "100" to one of its property nodes but it did not help.


I also tried go back the default -Inf to Inf in the Data Entry tab of the control but it did not help either.


I am out of idea and really don't understand why my control applies a different range than the one I set. My LabVIEW version is 14.0.1 (32-bit). I would really appreciate if someone had already seen such problem and knew how to solve it. Thanks!

Hi vic,


whenever you have a problem with your VI you should attach that VI!


That being said: check the properties of this control (again)!

"coerce" is the right setting. Does the control have associated units?


Yes, please attach a simple VI that contains the control.
