event structure multiple vi

Hi guys,
I would like to know how can i create a vi such that there are some buttons which would activate other vis when i run it? In addition how to wire the vis so that it will return to the main vi when i click continue. Thanks

Hi ouchie,

how long have you been using LabView? Have you heard about sub-vis and while loops?

-Create a while loop in the subvi, wire the "Continue" button to the stop terminal - now the subvi will run until you press "Continue"...
-Make an event ("value change") for each button in your main vi. Now you can start a subvi with each button. When the subvis run longer you shouldn't include them directly in the event structure but prefer some producer/consumer-pattern (by default the event structure will block the vi until the event case is handled...)

You can c the below example for your reference. Instead of that button named stop you can rename it as continue.


Hope this helps,
