Let me just let you know that there is a better way to architect your entire code. Please don't take this as criticism but I really think you should look into event structures, state machine design, queues and notifiers. Have a look at the Producer/Consumer Design (events) and the State Machine patterns by browsing through the templates that are shipped with LabVIEW (File -> New...). Your GUI should be interfaced with using event structures and not polling (like you are doing right now). Implementing a Producer/Consumer design will remove the issue you are facing right now. If you have any questions, please let us know.
