Early mentors of mine taght me two helpfull leassons.

 

1) If in doubt right-click.

 

2) Do not know how a function works? "Ctrl-n" (creat new VI) and try it out.

See my example code I attached earlier. As already pointed out, your event structure is set to lock the front panel until the event completes, but the event never completes because there is an intereactive inner while loop. Catch 22. Also, in order for the control to be read, it belongs inside the loop, else its value only gets read once at the start of the program.

 

These are all typical LabVIEW beginner mistakes that are most prevalent for new users that are very familiar with text based programming. Once your thinking adapts to the new paradigm, things will fall into place quickly. Good luck! 😄

What is "this issue". Does this have anything to do with the main problem described in the tread? Please clarify.

Nothing personal. I have a bad attitude against faulty code and if you take it personally, there's nothing I can do about it.

 

Here are a few smileys: :D:D:D:D:D:):):)

 

Come to NI Week in Austin early August and I'll buy you a beer. 😄

I would also strongly suggest to unmark your "marked solution", because it is a disservice to all future forum visitor (having a similar problem) to suggest that complete garbage code will solve their problem. It will not! Don't lead them astray!

 

You can also ask the moderator to substitute a better VI.

 

Personally, I would wait until you have a good solution, then post it together with a final analysis and mark ithat as solution.

Locking Event Structures.

 

I pointed that out 5 days ago here.  http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/How-to-create-a-start-button/m-p/3316947#M971726  (Though it was another forum user who gave the code that had a problem.)
