"Disabled" is not allowed on global variables.  It makes sense if you realy think about it.

Global Variables are already a "different" vi.

 

I don't know what you mean by disabling a global variable.  A global variable is a means to transfer data between VI's.  It is not a user interface element.

 

Do you mean that you have a Ring control in one VI and you want to disable that Ring control in a different VI?  If so, you can pass a reference of that ring control from one VI to the other and use the Disabled property node acting on that reference.

Hi RavenFan,

 

Yes I do need to disable the ring control from the different subvi, I will try using reference.

 

Thanks
