how to make indicator turn on and off?

Go to solution

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I don't know exactly how to express the questions and wasn't able to find anything similar.


I want a LED to turn on on the front panel when a given button is pressed, but I also want it to turn off when the routine it indicates ends. How do I do that? I'll post a print screen of part of my block diagram. The indicator I'm talking about is 'Setting...'. Thanks

The easiest way is to use a local variable but the best way is to create a state machine. To create a local you right click the indicator. You right click on the local to change it from read to write.

You don't need the sequence structure that has only a wire going through it. The wire will determine the flow in the same way without the structure.

I'm gonna use the local variable for now, and read something about state machines later.

And indeed the sequence structure is useless. Thanks!
