cannot use static control reference to drive case statement

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi All,

 

So I have some buttons on my panel. The buttons tell one event case to turn on and off a function generator. (VISA USB port)

 

When I close the panel, I want to make sure to turn these outputs back off, so in my close window event case I try to do that by creating a reference to the button, and using that reference to drive a T/F case that if true (button is on) would turn the outputs off. However for some reason the case statement does not like using the reference as a control? picture below:

of course after fighting this for days, 1 minute after posting i finally find the solution. Please see below, needed to use the "reference properties" box to get the actual value out.
