continuously update time stamp on main panel

Highlighted

Hello,

 

I am trying to continuously update/show the time stamp based of a fixed starting point.  I made a SubVI, to accomplish the task, however, how can I go about using this subVI into a main program?  Alternatively, how can I continuously update the timestamp on the main VI?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

hiNi.

I’m Unable to check your sample VI (I don’t have 2013 in my PC).

 

Check this. I hope this will help You.

Are you on a MAC or are you looking for Time to XL.vi?  (The Time constant does not travel well, reset it to your local time)

Hi hiNi,

 

I'm not sure to have understood your request.

 

Does this code answers to your question?

Hello, 

 

I have converted the files to LabVIEW 2012.

 

I am bascially trying to update the time stamp in the Main.VI every second.  The time stamp has to start from a default setting of 10pm then update from that point until the program stops.  The subVI by itself works fine, however, in the Main.VI, it does not update the time stamp.

 

Alternatively, is there a more efficient way to have the time stamp update every second in the Main.VI as the program is running, given a default start of 10pm?

 

Thanks,

hiNi

Why you want to read time stamp from Subvi. If you’re not doing anything in subvi (except time) then there is no use. You can simply update your time in Main VI ( as per my previous post).

 

Please check this VI. I hope this will help you.

You want to display an absolute time that has no relationship to the actual time? That sounds useful.
