I'm trying to build a text command to send over to a device. The command is something like READ=volts[number of points,time1,time2],amps[number of points,time1,time2],watts[number of points,time1,time2] etc
I want to dynamically adjust some parameters (such as all of the time1's and all of the time2's), and so i'm using a build text subvi. However, even though i want to use 'time1' three times, the subvi doesnt let me have the same name for a parameter and makes me create 3 seperate parameters so that my subvi ends up looking stupid.
I end up with something like this in my "text with parameters in percents" field: READ= volts[100,%t1%,%t2%], amps[100,%t3%,%t4%], watts[100,%t5%,%t6%] etc Even though t1=t3=t5 and t2=t4=t6
What am I doing wrong?
At least I have chicken
