Labview Dashboard Help

I am trying to make a slider on the dashboard control a motor’s output. I have an idea as to what to do, but if I could get any suggestions, that would be great.

I found this discussion http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111754 to be the most informative source for this year’s dashboard. They made it ridiculously easy to do but the tutorials I’ve seen don’t explain it clearly.

I opened it up and it said the vi was missing, or had been removed or deleted. So did i do something wrong?

Forgive me if I’m a bit confused here. When you say you opened it up, did you mean you tried to open a dashboard project in LabVIEW or do you mean you opened the dashboard in Windows?
I’m going to assume you tried to open the dashboard.vi in LabVIEW but LabVIEW couldn’t find it. I think you want to open a new Dashboard project first. LabVIEW will then create the dashboard.vi and open it up for you to edit.
Let me know if I’m off base here.
