keeping top level vi's running

Hi all,

Could someone suggest a method of keeping top level vi's running when they
call lower level vi's. I know it is possible to do using references, but am
not sure how to set it up.

Any help greatly appreciated.

John,

The best for you is to get LabVIEW Basics II and Advanced I Courses
Kit's from NI. These topics are explained there perfectly with an
examples. It's hard to explain here the all subjects. Also take a look
at the ..\examples and ..\VISERVER directory of your LV installation
directory.

Good luck,

Sergey's advice is a great idea. To get you past this hurdle, think
about it this way. The calling diagram's dataflow doesn't stop, just
the ones hat are downstream of the subVI. If you have other things in
parallel with the subVI, they can continue to run. You can either have
a parallel loop, or parallel subVI calls being carried out.
