I have made a slideshow VI on LabView that also monitors real-time data from a datalogger.
The program works like this: -
Startup/Page 1: - Background pane displays a nice screenshot. A set of indicators displays real-time data. Switches to Page 2 after 20 seconds.
Page 2: - Background changes to another screenshot. Real-time indicators hide, and a set of three graphs show up, displaying historical data. Switches after 20s.
Page 3 etc: - Graphs and indicators hide, a 'slideshow' is displayed by changing the background pane. Switches back to page 1 after sequence.
Everything works nicely, except for one thing: I cannot get the indicators to hide and background to change simultaneously, resulting in an awkward 'lag' in between.
I did an example VI to illustrate this. Simply select two separate pictures at the front panel, run the VI and toggle the Boolean control to see what i mean.
Any idea of how to get the indicators and background to change simultaneously?
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would use a tab control and pictures. I would preload the pictures and put the controls on the different pages. See the attached code.
