SOLVED: What block is this? Some kind of error retry icon

Go to solution



I'm preparing for the CLAD; and I happened upon a block I haven't seen before, at least not in a for structure. I've painted it in blue. If you can tell me how to create this block, I'd appreciate it. If you could tell me how I could have found it, with zero notions where it comes from, that would also be great.


Edit: Nvm, I figured it out. Just add conditional terminal to the for-loop by right clicking the frame, and then changing the stop icon to Continue while True...

Hi Dr,


it's the conditional stop of a FOR loop, also indicated by the red circle in the "N" terminal.


Read the help for FOR loops…

Thanks for the quick and accurate answer Gerd. You know, I've worked with LabVIEW/TestStand for three years now and never have I added a conditional to a for loop. I think I have to go through core 2 in detail before I do this test, so many behaviours and features I'm not very familiar with.

I think it was added in ... 2014(?) 🙂

Well, it is actually a "conditional continue". 😄 (i.e. continue if true). You can click it and change it to "stop if true", same as for a while loop.
