Passing data from "for loops"

I am using Labview as an operator interface/control program to perform
testing on hydraulic actuators. My task is to build a program (VI) that
will cycle an actuator with an opposing load actuator through multi layers
of testing. All of the VI's that interface the hardware have been written
for me.

How can I display on the front panel a continuously updated "Total cycle
count" coming from more than one "for loop"?

Each "for loop" contains the VI's necessary to perform its layer of the
testing and a cycle counter is not overwritten when the VI is started and
stopped.

If you are asking what I think you are, there is a small icon in the lower
left hand corner of the for loop. Create an indicator on the front panel,
then wire it to that small icon. I believe it is blue and yellow, and as
an "i" on it. It counts the number of loop iterations performed. But, it
performs 3 or 4 a second, so it will count very quickly.
