And DON"T forget to read up on Defer Front Panel updates while you are studing Event structures!

I have a lot of issues with Simon's code.


  • Cluttered with local variables
  • two event structures hidden in variuous cases of a case structure (this is really bad, because event structure should never be obstructed, but always in the dataflow).
  • Even structures need to live on the diagram of the main while loop!

Here's a quick rewrite how I would do it. No local variables, no sequences, and a single toplevel event structure doing almost everything.

It also handles the case where stop is pressed too early.


Modify as needed ....

Right you are Christian!  I just wanted to give the OP something that actually worked without getting to critical of a blue bar.  The OP should have good reason to read caveats on using event structures with a critical eye.
