Trouble with bundle function on a cursor cluster

Go to solution

Hello all


I have some trouble changing cursor properties using the cluster bundle function. I want to control where the cursors are placed and how they look.

As far as I understand from reading the help file, it should be possible just to change one or more of the items in the cluster with the bundle function, or 

am I missing something?


I have attached a VI that show my problem.


I am using Win 7 64bit, with LabVIEW 2009 SP1 64bit.

You have an array of clusters going into the Bundle Node.  You need to put the cluster out of the array containder and wire that up.  You'll first have to disconnect the array from its typedef to be able to pull the constant out of the array container.  You will also want to use Bundle by Name if you only want to change a few items.

The cursor list is an array of clusters. To add a single cursor, your bundle function needs the cluster element.

Thanks for the tip, now my problem is that I am not quite sure how to convert the cluster back to a type I can input on the cursor list.

Help please 🐵


Once again I have included the VI 🐵

Instead of the Insert Into Array, it would be better to use the Build Array function. You would not need to convert the new cursor element into an array in either case. Just look at the code that Ravens Fan posted.
