Hi partha

Thanks for your mail, I need to have main front panel remain open and additionally the newly opening front panels.Also is it possible to do without using the Event structure.

Thanks

Hi Veeru,

you can also load the other vi´s dynamically, so that you program is more flexible. Don´t you have the Event Structure or whats the reason behind not using it?

Thanks Mike

Actually i am using event structure in some part of my program, previously i got a suggestion that not to use more event structure,thats the reason i thought i will use with other possible methods.

Is it possibel to do in any other methods.Recently i started learning some interesting things in LabVIEW,thats the reason often i post questions.

Thanks

Hi Veeru,

one FP per vi is ok. You can simply add the new events to your existing event structure.

Hope it helps.

Hi Veeru,

sorry, i meant one Event Structure per Front Panel is ok. Smiley Happy You can open it like shown by Partha or you load the vi´s dynamically.

Hi Veeru,
 
You can open multiple FPs from the Main VI either dynamically or using CS/ES also. Smiley Happy
 
Maybe you can try out the option in the VI Properties setting the window to be floating instead of Modal [which I ve set in my VIs].
 
Or you can try out Mike's suggestion using VI Server >> Run VI method or Call by Reference node (in theApplication palette).
