I have create a VI that will countdown any input amount from 1 hour up to 12 hours that comes on when the time is selceted and shuts off when the timer ends. Any help will be greatly accepted....
Start with below links to learn about LabVIEW programming and post VI/snippet which you tried and where you are stuck exactly instead of asking for full solution.
Presumably someone in your Institution qualifies as a LabVIEW Guru. Maybe they teach LabVIEW, maybe they're the "go-to person" when a student in Senior Design realizes "Oh, no, I need to learn LabVIEW quick, who should I see?". Ask your fellow students and faculty, and go "apprentice" yourself for a week (means try to arrange to spend at least an hour a day with them).
LabVIEW is pretty easy to learn the "basics", especially if you have some guidance (the Tutorials aren't bad). To get good at it, a mentor ("guru") can be very helpful, especially in teaching you about LabVIEW "Style", and some important "Do"s and "Don't"s.
