    cause i'm stumped trying to use this thing to do a really simple task! never used it before and it isn't making much sense to me, even when trying to do the most basic stuff

    bloody 'ell that was quick!


    just trying to build a thermometer (well that bits done) use the Wait Until Next ms Multiple function and a for loop to run it 100 times, and then plot it on a Waveform. Should be easy enough but cant get my head round wiring the thing up and the help file is pretty useless

    cheers

    I don't see how a temperature plot could be displayed as a waveform...

    taking readings 100ms appart and plot them using the waveform chart control. turns out i had the brains to figure it out afterall though. so i've managed to get past all that and get everything done.

    thanks anyway

    Wow, I haven't used labview in 10 years. It was pretty new then. I bet it does some cool stuff now.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help :p

    I mostly use it for timing, occasionally for temps though.
