Measurment Studio 8.6 Network Variable and Compact FieldPoint

Hello,

 

Looking for Vb.Net 2005 and Measurment Stydio 8.x Example illustrating how to browse multiple cFP items based on Network Variables.

 

Thanks

Hi Kat,

 

Are you asking if there is a way to find out what cFP items are using certain Network Variables?

Hi Justin,

 

Yes , i'd like to browse then select multiple cFP items (TC channels from TC-120 for example ) like reading Datasocket items , the thing is i'd like to use the new Network Variables

technique insted of datasocket but i could't find example illustrating the steps to read cFP items via Network Variables yet !!

 

Thank's

Hi Kat,

 

I'm more familiar with LabVIEW programming but I'm assuming that what you were using in Measurement Studio is equivalent to DataSocket Select URL.vi in LabVIEW (correct me if I'm wrong).  If this is the case, I'm afraid that there isn't a direct correlation to this with Network Shared Variables.  I think that you would have to first create a shared varible for each TC channel that you want to use and then select from one of those.  But, again, no nice browser window like with the DataSocket Select URL.vi.

 

 I will check around with people who are more proficient in Measurement Studio to see if there is a way.

Hi Justin

You are correct , browse cFP items like Datasocket ... mean while how we can browse for cRIO items ? does it support Datasocket or Opc ?

 Thank's

Hi,

 

I don't think that you will be able to get the pop browser with network variables in Measurement Studio either.  The only example I could find was the project in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\National Instruments\MStudioVS2008\DotNET\Examples\NetworkVariable\Basic\vb.  In this you would have to hard code the shared variable that you want to use.  Also, I found this article that might be interesting to you Migrating to Measurement Studio Network Variable from DataSocke.  

 

I do have some good news on the cRIO front though, it supports both DataSockets and OPC.

Hello,

 

Fine, i thought cRIO channel items could be browsed from VB.Net with Network Variables only , if we can use Opc and Datasocket like cFP that will be great !! can you provide some 

example please.

 Thank's
