enable%2Fdisable button in block diagram

Hi,

 

I am writing a program in LabVIEW 2012 where I want a certain button on the front panel to be diabled until another button is pressed. My question is; how do I enable a certain button from within the block diagram?

 

Thanks

Right-click on the terminal that represents the button you want to enable/disable and choose create --> property node.  You'll see a property for "Disabled."  Between what I've told you and the help associated with the property node, you should have to knowledge to use it.  🙂

Thank you! I was confused by it only being called "disable," didn't know it could enable as well! Excellent!

 

What if I wanted to disable a large number of controls after a button has been pressed. Is there an easy way to make a property node affect many controls, not just one?

 

Thanks again,

 

Quinn
