FLexRay xlFrSetConfiguration() VI

I am using the VIs  in  the Vector XL on the link to set Flexray communcation .However,among the Vis included,there's no xlFrSetConfiguration() VI(I have tried to create it myself but it requires to be passed a structure of inputs to it that i am not sure how to do).Is there a walk around for this VI that is already included among the Vis?Because I understand it's important for channel setup.Thank you

You can find the structure that needs to be passed (XLfrClusterConfig) in the vxlapi.h file.

Try the attached control and function.

Thank you TroyK for your response..I figured out how to create xlFrSetConfiguration() yesterday thanks to you.I read the information you wrote on the link because i realised you had created the  VIs by making modifications to  vxlapi.h.and the used the import shared library wizard of labview.Now I am trying to do the same for all the other remaining functions..Thank you

Message 4 of 14

Hello TroyK,I hope you are fine.I am having hard time creating the xlFrInitStartupAndSync().it is different from the other functions because i have to pass a structure in it and in that structure there're pointers to other structures.Please help me!

I don't use FlexRay so I have no good reason to use up my time to write functions for someone else to use.


What have you tried so far?  Attach the VI.  What happens when you run it?

What have you read so far to get the information you need?

LabVIEW CLFN structure passing???

vxlapi FlexRay datatypes???

Hello,TroyK.Sorry  it was the end of the day and I was tired and disperate .I have attached my VI.What happens is when I pass the port handle to this VI,I get xl_ERR_INVALID_PORT.When I pass the port handle to other VIs I don't get this error. This makes me think there's something wrong with my I created this VI by modifying the vxlap.h file and then using the import shared library tool.Thank you for your time.

I have updated my VI because i was passing the porthandle as a pointer but it's supposed to be passed as value. Now I am getting a new error: vector xl driver error 271.Here is the updated VI.

I have resolved my problem.the vi i just posted before works but the 271 error was coming from a wiring problem in a previous VI such that the input parameters were being wrongly passed to it

Hi Have you completed developing Flexray communication VIs? If so could you share ?
