Slider to a cluster control

Hello All
Clusters are the perfect way to keep a lot of controls in a one peace. But when the amount of controls is too high than the front pannel looks stuffed. It is not possible to use Tab Control inside a cluster, so the only one is an array. But here problems starts on the diagram side when accessing all controlls demands accessing the array cell. It is also possible to hide controlls and show them, but again that is not elegant way.
I recall now the "3D Studio" when the front pannel have a "motion" controlls. The huge control can be slided down and up either with a mouse on it either by clicking on a slider. That would be something I am asking for. How to make a sliding cluster?
thanks in advance

1. It's not a good style to too many things in a cluster. You will have difficulties in maintain the code. Especially when you want to add something in it and wish to keep compatable with older versions.
2. There is some way out. You can run the demo VI and slide the slider beside the cluster.
3. Maybe you can try string table instead.
Let me know whether this helps.

  • Printout a cluster control

    has anyone an idea how to printout a cluster control. When I print it with
    "Append Control Image to Report" the I only have the empty frame printed

    Are you using labVIEW 8.0??
    There was a bug where in, the cluster was not properly saved while using append to control / get image method.
    This was fixed in LabVIEW 8.2

  • Slider for Display and Control Time of Video

    Hey Community,
    I run a Video with the IMAQ/ AVI components. Therefor i want to have a timeband as there is one in a normal video player. The Time runs and if I click on the band the video should jump to this moment of the video. Is there a possibility to manage that or do i have to seperate the display of the time and an extra Control to jump to the point of interest?
    In the file there is a little example what i mean. (LabView 2010)
    Thanks Philipp

    Hi Philipp,
    you could do that by modifying the "Read AVI File" (see Screenshot). I also attached the VI saved with "For previous version", I hope that works for you too.
    This example uses the "IMAQ AVI2 Read Frame VI" function where you can specify the desired frame. So you only have a control that can modifies the current frame, which is normally incremented every loop iteration.
    Best regards,

  • View Cluster Control/Indicator as Icon on Front Panel (sub VI's)

    I make a lot of use of clusters to pass data into and out of sub vi's.  I keep everything typedef'd and the clusters can often grow to be rather large on the front panel which makes navigating the front panel quite difficult.  I usually have maybe 2 or 3 other controls and indicators that are not within the cluster.
    Is it possible to view the cluster as an icon in a similar way to the block diagram?

    Hello DNichols,
    I recommend placing the cluster(s) in question partway off-screen, with the label displayed.  If you really need to minimize the footprint of the cluster front panel object, set AutoSizing to "None" via the right-click menu and resize as needed, but keep in mind that the FP object is now more-or-less useless to future developers except for ease of clicking to link to the connector pane.  Since you're type-defining everything, accessing or viewing the contents of the cluster might not matter much, though.
    Redefining your architecture is probably not a priority right now, but you might also want to consider using classes in the future, as others have suggested.

  • How to extract a cluster controls array in 8.2 PDA Module

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm in the process of porting an application from LV 8.2 to LV 8.2 PDA. The application relies
    heavily on using the controls[] property node which I just found out is not
    supported in LV 8.2 PDA. Does anyone know of any alternative method of
    extracting a cluster's controls array without using a property node?
    I've attached an example of the application.
    Thanks for your help,

    Hello Jon,
    Currently, there is now way to obtain a reference to a control inside a cluster in LV PDA. I have experimented a great deal with alternatives, but to no avail. However, I think you you may be able to accomplish the same behavior using just an unbundle, or just using explicit controls outside of a cluster. Hopefully we will have that functionality in a future version of LabVIEW PDA.

  • Global Volume Slider (from library) to control drag and drop xml playlist

    hi there,
    have spent some time doing tutorial and looking online but can't seem to get a volume slider functioning.
    the scenario is :
    3 circles which can be dragged over a target (one for each circle)
    When the circle is placed on its target it loads its respective xml playlist into 4 buttons (play, pause, forward, back)
    I want to be able to create some kind of function to control the volume, either using a slider or a rotary dial, whichever is easiest!
    any help greatly appreciated!

    Be sure you include the SoundTransform class...
    Create a SoundTransform object
    ...named 'st' (I like short names). Create this AFTER the creation of your soundChannel object...
    var st:SoundTransform = channel.soundTransform;
    st.volume = 1;//This sets the volume to 100%
    channel.soundTransform = st;//This associates your SoundChannel object with your SoundChannel object
    Then, for simple testing of this
    ...create some new button...
    halfVol_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, doHalfVolume);
    function doHalfVolume(e:MouseEvent):void{
       st.volume = .5;//This sets the volume to 50%
    So, now you have a half-baked volume control. Nothing exciting, but this gets you acquainted with the volume part of what you want. You have created, and have access to, the st.volume property to set the volume to whatever you want, from 0 to 1.
    Next, I'd suggest that you practice the creation of your own slider. Search online for tutorials on it, like I mention above (as a Flash programmer, this is something I, and you, end up doing - searching - dozens of times a week at times). In the end, the position of your knob/button/control in the slider is a %: What % is the location of the knob on the total width/height of the slider. This % is what you send to the st.volume property.
    As an alternative to create your own slider, you can also use the Flash "Slider" component:
    ...but this, too, requires some getting-up-to-speed with using it.
    Good luck. If you want some actual code examples - you'll find plenty online :-)

  • Cluster Control References

    The Controls[] property of a cluster will provide an array of generic
    references to the cluster elements.  However, each element must have
    its own "Type Cast" or "To More Specific Class" node, and the resulting
    type must corresponding to the order of elements in the cluster.    
    An "Unbundle By Name" or "Bundle By Name" node will respectively read or write typed values of cluster elements.
    Is there an "Unbundle References By Name" node or VI to obtain a cluster of typed (not generic) references from a cluster?

    Attached is a very quick toy example of using a cluster's element references.

  • CTS + error during deployment There is no cluster control instance running on host

    We are running our QA portal in a cluster (3 for MS, 1 for ERS, 1 for JC).  The alias for the JC is <jcalias> and the real name of the host is <clustername1).  So depending on which component is one which of the 3 cluster hosts wil dictate which host <jcalias>.

    I have checked the referenced not.  The profiles all use the JCALIAS as the host name, and in the configtool secure store it's also specified in admin/host/<SID>
    If I change it in the secure store to the real name (clusterhost1) that the message server is giving, it will probably work.  But what happens in the future when, after a cluster resart, <jcalias> gets assigned to <clusterhost2> instead?  I'd rather be able to use the alias in secure store and for the message server to pick that name up and use it.

  • Slider bar and volume control gone!  how do I fix this

    I am new to mac and i just lost the slider bar and the top most section of the itunes controls. I don't know what happened. I can't get it back. The controls via menu work. Also the red amber and green dots on the corner are also gone!
    I tried dragging the itunes app to the trash and reloading it but it was restored the same way as before. Does anyone know what went wrong or how to restore itunes to the proper display?
    thanks for your help in advance

  • Cluster Controls causes either one loop to hang or LabVIEW to hang

    I am working on a program that has three clusters.  Each cluster has LED controls inside them.  During the test the Board Image, Block Diagram, and Measurement Number controls will be changed accordingly.  When probing, the while loops that hang most often are the top one (board Image) and the bottom one (schematic).  Sometimes LabVIEW becomes unresponsive and I have to abort the program.  Any suggestions?

    Hi and slam to all
    I have a problem. i had made a labview program for controlling an electronic box. I had designed a GUI. GUI has to work 24/7. It worked best for a month or so. then my GUI started getting malfunctioning specially string control became disabled showing no data and some case statements stopped working. Is that true that Labview is no an industrial grade tool, its just for lab purpose...??? These bugs have threaten my reputation alot.
    This seems completely unrelated to the topic of this old thread that is already marked as solved. (and why did you quote that entire first message, incuding the images???)
    Let's make sure your reputation as a forum poster is not getting tarnished by these strange habits.
    I recommend that you start a new thread.
    LabVIEW is "industrial grade" and used everywhere for mission critical applications (CERN, SpaceX, etc. etc.)
    Please post your code. It is possible that you have programmed your code inefficiently in a way that it uses more and more memory over time, until it finally runs out. How do you tell if a case statement stops working? String controls are to enter data, not to show data. What is an "electronic box"? can you be more specific?

  • Problem sending Tab/Cluster control image to Word report.

    I've set up an option for the user to send a control image to a Word report where they can decide to Print and/or save from Word (I've found the normal Print option too slow with the printer available). The Word document opens fine but I am loosing data from my indicators, without which there's not much point in printing!!
    Is there a problem with Clusters, I have a chart and table on another page of the Tab in my main program and they come out fine.

    This problem has been reported in previous posts on the LabVIEW forums.  LabVIEW R&D is aware of the problem, and it should be fixed in a future LabVIEW version.  For now, the only workaround I know of is to make extra space in your clusters so the controls are visible in the report.  I know it's ugly, but it's the only thing I know that works (other than reverting back to LabVIEW 7.1).

  • Listener keeps failing when using Veritas Cluster Control 3.5

    Hello -
    During that past 4 months, my Listener has failed on 3 different occasions. The Veritas software attempts to test and see if the Listener is up, and then it issues a kill command. I end up with the TNS-12560 error in the sqlnet.log. The only way to resolve the issue is to stop and restard the Listener. Is anyone out there running Oracle on Solaris 64 with Veritas Cluster 3.5?
    I also added the queuesize=1024 to the Listener.ora file about 5 months ago.

    ok so i experimented a little with the hardware and here what i have to the moment:
    1. i thought that the usb kb could be the case for mac os to crash so i disconnected the cable from the KVM and plugged normal apple kb to the mac.
    2. however when i tried switching back to mac, the machine crashed again.
    from what i noticed for the last few days 'working' with this kvm switch was the screen resolution changing while i was switching. meaning the screen flickered for couple of times prior to showing 1280x1024 that was set up in the system. during flickering the resoution became 1024x768. i 've seen it pretty clearly, just it was for half of a second.
    also when powering up both machines, they were starting with 1024x768 and not 1280x1024 as was set up. i had to manually change the screen resolution on both machines (pc and mac) every time after successful start up.
    so by far my understanding is that kvm switch forces monitor for 1024x768 during switches and on start up. it also causes the OSes (win2K and MacOSX) to lose 1280x1024 and accept 1024x768 as if the monitor was changed and couldn't operate at a higher resolution.
    having said that i uploaded this info to kvm mfg (ATEN) and couple more mac forums so that this info may help someone else when ordering a kvm for mac. at the same time i am still open for any thoughts, advices and crazy ideas to get round this bug.

  • How to use the jquery UI slider object in Edge to control the play head

    Edge seems to automatically load jquery {I think} because I see a lot of $.{...} code in the code file. I want to do something like ... add the jquery UI slider as a symbol into my assets library then place an instance of the slider on my stage. Then I can start coding event handlers that get the position of the slider and then reposition the play head to the trigger associated with the number returned from the slider. The slider seemed to be controlled in jquery and the play head control is in the Edge api.  they both seem to work with js functions ...  so I'm looking for a way to get them working together in the Edge code that I see for a stage.

    You could try to load jquery ui and then apply it to the symbol.
    There are serveral ways to load a script.
    Example 1 for draggable
    $.getScript("js/jquery-ui-1.9.1.custom.min.js", function() {
    var info = sym.$("info");
    info.draggable({ disabled: false });
    info.draggable({ snap: true });
    info.draggable({ axis: "x" });
    Example 2
        complete: init
    function init() {
        var mySymbol= sym.getSymbol("symbolName");
        // do something

  • How to make a slide bar that controls opacity

    I'm trying to figure out how to make a slide bar that would control opacity. If I were to take to pictures on top of each other, the slide bar would control the opasity of the top image. Thanks

    can you make a slider that controls anything?  if so, what's the range you can control?
    ie, when the slider is at one extreme it causes some object to have value1 and when it's at the other extreme the object has value2.  what value1, value2 can you handle?
