How to use more than two condition in if statement inside the formula node?

Solved!
Go to solution

I know how to use the if and if else in the formula node, but is there any way that I can check multiple cases inside if statement?

for instance: How to write the following syntax in the formula node?

if (u1==1) && (u2==1) && (u3==1) && (u4==1)

Rather than futzing with the formula node, I would just use the native LabVIEW functions.

Bill, do you mean by native LabVIEW functions the block diagram provided by LabVIEW?

Do you think this will create a bulky system?

"Bulky"?  Formula nodes get bulky.  But the main reason I would use the native LabVIEW math functions is because I don't have to check for typos.  😉

Hi Ameer,

 

it gets very clean once you employ the polymorphism in LabVIEW:

Use arrays to handle the same operation on multiple elements…

 

Edit: those "u" variables probably contain boolean values, so you should also use a boolean array in LabVIEW. This way you don't even need this comparison…

Best regards,
