Here is an example of adding with a wait using a state machine.

Hi there,


I've just read your post and I'm interested to find out where did you get the flat sequence structure from? I'm using labview 6.1 and I haven't been able to locate this one yet.

The flat sequence wasn't added until LabVIEW 7.


I would say it's about time to upgrade.Smiley Wink

I wouldn't upgrade just for the flat sequence


try using the state machine concept to perform sequences.  that way you can edit your sequence very easy. 


if you are up for a small learning curve download the state machine design pattern from the openG toolkit and learn that model.  you can then use what they term macros to script a sequence of states

No, of course not.  But so much else as changed since then as well.  How old is LV6?  About 6 years old?

>sequences are evil


Now, now, they aren't always evil:


Sequences are a tool for explicit control of execution order. People often promote using error cluster wiring to control execution order, but I think that's evil, because wiring error clusters for the goal of handling errors is a clear and well defined use of error wires, and doing it for some other goal obscures the programming intent. It's a programming trick, and programming tricks are fun and clever for a day and then turn into traps for the next time the code is examined.


Besides, if it weren't for sequences, we wouldn't have the biggest glyph in the LabVIEW icon!

Well what happens when you have a sequence with 15 frames and you want to re-arrange frames 3,5,8 and 12 but you only want to do that in certain instances


do you still suggest using a sequence?


That is why i suggested to use a scripted state machine
