I have two applications (A.exe for control & B.exe for measurement) made by Labview.
(Only some shared variables were linked in A.exe and B.exe)
It takes a long time to see some result using two application.
So, I want to make C application to load, wait and control A.exe & B.exe during some process.
They are all in the same computer.
In summary, there are three independent applications not in developement environment.
I have a little experience dynamic loading of vi (not application) but no chance to meet this kind of work with multiple independent applications.
Even this case, can I control A.exe and B.exe by C.exe?
What do I do to realize this project in A.vi, B.vi, and C.vi and how to build them?
Solved! Go to Solution.
After reading the forum, I got to know the application is a similar with VI reference.
I made a test program and maybe I can put or read a value to some variables in other application using invoke nodes.
However, I cannot transfer the signal event due to the mechnical property of button in this attachment.
(pots: okay, stop: no)
Can you advice me how to send the event effectively without modifying some prepared applications?
Here are some ideas that you might explore. I have limited (which can mean "no or not very much", and can also mean "a little, but don't consider myself an Expert") experience with them, so they might not be appropriate for what you are doing:
Thank you for introducing Delacor Queued Message Handler (DQMH).
I will look at it and think about how to apply for it to my future application.
However, I am not a program specialist for LabVIEW but a scientist who works with LabVIEW for simple automation with measurement instruments.
So have no many chances to develop some complicated my own codes or applications.
Sometimes, I need to understand other's application without major corrections for my purpose.
In return to my problem (event with latching a boolean button), maybe I need to use a user-event to solve my trouble in single application.
But I am wondering how to add the function of user-event-"like" to my 3rd application in multiple applications.
Can you kindly consider my trouble?
I can find the way to control two application by the 3rd application using Functional Global and VI server.
