Hello! I have a friend who is currently trying to navigate learning Labview. I had had some experience with it but wasn’t able to answer many of the questions that she had, so I was hoping someone more well versed in labview would be able to help her out. She was not a FIRST alum, so she asked me to post the following:
“Hi, My name is Jackie and physics researcher in charge of connecting a bunch of power supplies to LabVIEW so we can control all of our hardware remotely. I have never done something like this and no one in my research lab has worked with LabVIEW so I have nowhere to turn for help.
Anyway, I have a few basic questions that I need guidance on.
in order to do connect multiple hardware like this, I would have to make an actor framework right? or do I need to start a queued message handler? I’m learning as I go so I don’t know the difference between the two but I found quick definitions for these terms and these two seemed fitting. (please correct me if I am wrong)
what is the best way to start the block code? I’ve seen multiple examples of the block diagram code and its a bit overwhelming. Is there a book or manual I can follow with baby steps provided?
those are all of the questions I have for now but thank you in advance for any help!“
If any of you can offer some guidance would you be able to dm me so that I can give you her email? Thanks so much!
