Problem with boolean buttons

Hello,

I am doing a Labview soft, including many data entry.
For each of these entry, the operator has to validate it by clicking on
a boolean button.
These buttons are implemented in while loop.
But often, I have to click many times on the button to validate the and
to display the next step.
Does anyone can explain me how to do to have to click only once on the
button ?

Thank you for your responses,

Bertrand.

Right click on boolean button. Choose Mechanical action and select latch
when released. The button will stay latched until it is read. There may
be more elegant methods especially if you loop takes a long time to itterate.

The problem could be that your iteration goes too fast.
Instead of trying mechanical action change, you can put a
short Wait ms in your loop let's say 100 ms to avoid your
program be checking the value of your boolean button
everytime.
Hope this helps

If latch when release doesen't work, you could put a Wait
in your loop, let's say 100 ms to avoid your program to be
checking boolean state too fast.

Try putting a 100 ms delay in your loop. If the loop is executing at full
speed, you are competing with the O/S for CPU time.
