Hello everyone! I'm a bit new to labview but i'm learning heh.


I'm getting a response from a picoammeter in the form of a string that contains the current and then some junk i don't need afterwards. Each thing is seperated by a comma so i want to search the string for the comma and then cut off the comma and everything after just keeping the data that comes before the comma. I'm struggling to find a good way to do this. Anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Use "match pattern" from the string palette with a comma as pattern, then use the "before substring" output (top terminal) for the desired result.

If a solution in LabVIEW is not "easy and elegant", you can be pretty sure that it can be improved. 😄
