changing a control to 2 decmal places


I am trying to change a simple control in lab view so that it will allow input of 0.1v increments. At h moment it will only increment at 1v at a time.

I am using lab view 8.6 and am contoling a compat rio. If I alter the increment value in the properties box it just reverts back to zero.

If you are working on cRIO, it is possible that you are on the FPGA target. FPGA does not support floating points. The default numeric representation is integer. You can switch to fixed point if needed.

If you are working on the RT, you can use floating point. But from your description it sounds like you have integer nevertheless....


hope this helps,
