restarting vi

Well, what I thought was going to be a very easy procedure in LabVIEW ended
up not being so easy. I am trying to have a button that can close the VI and
start it completely over again. Resetting the positions of all of the
controls to off. But there is no restart VI button. So I thought I'd make a
VI that would call another vi in turn calling the original vi back, but the
LabVIEW realized that I was trying to do a recursion, and didn't like that.
Has anyone made this work before? Thanks!

Hi Charles

You need your VI with the Restart button to be in a while loop in another VI.

The Restart button would connect out of the VI and to the while loop condition terminal so the loop will continue if the Restart
button is pressed.

Also, to reinitialize all values to default, you will have to set them to default using the VI server property.
