Hello, I am creating a program and coming across some issues. The below scenario simplifies my issue. Basically, when Boolean 4 is TRUE "Boolean 2" and "Gate Trigger" both become TRUE also. The issue I'm noticing is the switches are are toggling instantly but the signal is delayed by the amount in the timer. Why is this? It can be seen in the second picture below both switches are on and both associated LEDs are still off. If the switch is on should the signal not be transmitted instantaneously? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

An important detail that most text-based programmers overlook while learning LabVIEW is to think DATAFLOW.
Text-based languages are executed line by line whereas LabVIEW executes based on the availability of the dependent data.
Apply the Dataflow technique to your VI and everything will make sense then.
