resetting counter

I am using the attached vi to perform buffered photon counting using my PCI-6602 card.  The problem is that the counter continues to increment during each iteration of the while loop.  I want the counter to restart from 0 after acquiring the array of 256 elements.  How would I go about modifying the vi to perform this task?
 
Thanks,
Anthony

Sorry, I only have LV8.  I have taken a screenshot of my block diagram so you can see what's going on.  This vi was a modification of the example vi "Count Digital Events-Buffered-Continuous-Ext Clk.vi".   Very interesting vis you have posted, butI don't think they are what I'm looking for.

hi,

I noticed that, and purposely removed it to realise that actual execution time.

If the final count & no. of count are of interest, even 1ms matters 🙂 if this is to be for production test sw.

Thanks & Cheers!
