Dequeue a teststand queue with labview

Hello,

 

I'm trying to dequeue elements since a VI that is running in a Thread independent of the mainsequence (Teststand).

 

I :

 

1.- Create a Queue.

2.- Launch the VI in a new trhead (Is a states machine controlated by the queue ).

 

3.- Now in TESTStand mainsequence i will like enqueue elements to give orders at VI. Any idea how to do this?

 

egards,

In TestStand you call a VI that is a wrapper for Enqueue FIFO element. (FGV so you have the FIFO reference in a shift register)

Using queues only with labview The "Dequeue" function is in standby waiting 2 possible events:

 

1.- Element to dequeue in the queue --> Return the queue element.

2.- The queue is closed --> Return Error.

 

Using a "Reference Object" I don't find how to do this.

Thxs roderic,

 

The problem is in the labview part.... I don't find a easy way to do the dequeue.

Hi,

 

First, the best way is to enqueue a close message so you know it has to close.

 

Second, it returns an error when the queue ref is destroyed =>you just need to handle the error! Maybe the easiest way would be to add a failure post step action to your step (in TestStand) and do whatever exit code you need to perform!
