snap automatically

I have vi program two take a picture(snap) and the attachment is my program, my question is if i want to take a picture automatically by time instead of running program every time to snap picture, is that possible? If i put that code in while loop and make timing that will solve the problem or do u have any idea how can i do it?

Yes, a loop and a timing mechanism (such as the Elapsed Time Express VI) should work for you.

 

It sounds like you have a good plan, so try implementing it and stop back here with questions if you run into any trouble.

You can do this automatically through windows task scheduler and you dont have to be present, just have the computer on. goto vi properties under execution and check mark box "run when opened." ...if that is what you want? Smiley Wink
