As in the title. I am trying to create a user interface wherein each dialog radio button activates a group of controls and options, and results in a subtly different execution of the VI. Only one dialog radio button can be selected at any one time. Bearing in mind that I use LabVIEW 6.1 (just so you don't go suggesting any of these newfangled functions ;)) could someone suggest a means of achieving my aim.
Thanking you all way in advance...!
P.S. I cannot attach my 'code' as I am starting this from scratch. 🙂
Solved! Go to Solution.
I dont have access to LV 6 right now, but at least as far back as v7.1 there is a "Radio Buttons" control in the Boolean palette. This control will let you have a number of linked radio buttons and gets represented as an enum on the block diagram. If you then wire this to a case structure, you can choose desired behaviour based on the selected radio button:
No radio buttons control in LabVIEW 6...
There was an example that shipped with LabVIEW 6 that showed you how to simulate a radio button group. It's in the "Advanced Examples -> Customizing Control and VI Examples -> Custom Control Examples" section. It's called (appropriately) "Simulating Radio Buttons".
