View block diagram of code that has been deployed as run on start up?

Is there a way to view code and its block diagram while it runs as startup on the cRIO, just like when you deploy it to RAM? I’ve seen the dashboard VI, and was wondering if that had anything to do with it.



what you can do is run the code off one laptop and then control the bot off of the DS while your connected to your router.

I don’t have the cRIO in front of me, but you should be able to connect to code already running on the cRIO to debug it. However, the code in your project MUST be the same at the code in the cRIO, or it won’t work. A quick search leads me to these steps:

  1. Power up your cRIO/Robot.
  2. Open the correct project with your code in it.
  3. Open up Robot
  4. Select Operate->Debug Application or Shared Library.
  5. Type in your robot’s IP address and click “Refresh”
  6. Select the application to debug, which should be Robot
  7. Click Connect

I think that will work, but I don’t have a system to test it on, and I’m not a true Labview guru. I got all that info from this NI page:

If one of the NI guys comes along and declares the above completely wrong then my apologies for leading you astray.

I spent about 2 seconds trying to get debugging to work on an already deployed program last year, following the steps that Kevin posted. It didn’t work, and I didn’t spend any additional time trying to figure out why. It’s quite likely I did something wrong.
