use touch screen to write LabVIEW

Hi all,
Recently&nbsp;I &nbsp;have&nbsp;came up an idea about using touch screen(with pen) to write LabVIEW and I am wondering the&nbsp;workable of using it.<img height="16 src= http://forums.ni.com/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif" width="16" border="0"> 
Have anyone even used touch sceen to write LabVIEW and can give me some comments for that ? 
Thanks in advance.<img height="16 src= http://forums.ni.com/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif" width="16" border="0">

very interesting idea,
&nbsp;I would extend to use a input device like tablet pen they use in &nbsp;cad drawing.
but you need a keyboard to enter control and indicator name plus comments

Hi all,
Thanks for all of your replies.:smileyvery-happy:
Actually the reason that I have this idea because I feel hand pain when I use the mouse to write LabIEW in all day long and I would like to think of another method to write in oder to reduce the painful.
Firstly,I have tried some small touch panel with pan but it seems that the position for clicking is not exactly the point,instead, it has a light variation for tyhe clicking position.
Then,I found that there is a new 17" and 21" touch monitor with pen so I come up this idea.:smileytongue:
Actually do you alll have this kind of painful? And how do you all solve this problem?

Time in LabVIEW DAQ Assistant and Write LabVIEW file
Hello all, I would be extremely grateful for your assistance in helping me understand the timing in LabVIEW. Here are the details of the system. The data acquisition is done using&nbsp;a simple LabVIEW 8.2 based program consisting of a DAQ Assistant VI and a Write to Measurement File VI, which writes data in TDM format (binary with XML header). The hardware consists of a 1042Q chassis that contains 2 PXI-6133 cards. 16 transducers are connected to these 8 channel cards. The chassis is connected to a PC by means of MXI-4 fiber optic cable and a PCI-8336 card. &nbsp; I would like to sample all 16 channels simultaneously at 500 kS/s for 2 secs. or 1MS/s for 0.5 secs. When the signals were sampled at 500kS/s x 2secs., the time column looks like this when opened on DIAdem. &nbsp; Serial#&nbsp;&nbsp; Time&nbsp;&nbsp; Time(in secs. when displayed in number format with 8 decimals) 1&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 07/10/2007 00:09:42.1406&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 63351158982.14060800 14&nbsp;&nbsp; 07/10/2007 00:09:42.1407&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 63351158982.14069760 64&nbsp;&nbsp; 07/10/2007 00:09:42.1408&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 63351158982.14080000 109 07/10/2007 00:09:42.1409&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 63351158982.14090240 etc. &nbsp; The time does not change from serial 1 to 13, and&nbsp;only at the 14th row does&nbsp;it change, after which it&nbsp;remai...

Using the cFP controller with only LabVIEW and FIELDPOINT software but no LabVIEW RT
I have a cFP-2020 controller and cPF-AI-100 modules which I intend to use in a small project. I do have LabVIEW and FIELDPOINT software but I dont have LabWIEW RT software. Is it possible to use the cPF controller with only just LabVIEW? if yes, I would like to be advised how. Thanks Dear Chuma, It is not possible to&nbsp;set up your system without Labview realtime module. There are system integrators who can build a executable for you. You can search for a alliance member by using the following link; <a href="http://sine.ni.com/apps/utf8/niaa.search_display" target="_blank">http://sine.ni.com/apps/utf8/niaa.search_display</a>&nbsp;Or call your local NI branch office. But if you are planning to do more realtime projects&nbsp;in the future this wouldn't be costs effective. Another option is to use compact fieldpoint pc controlled backplane (so there has to be a PC to control your compact fieldpoint system (not deterministic)). You can do this by using the compact fieldpoint ethernet backplane; <a href="http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/202527" target="_blank">http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/202527</a>&nbsp; Good luck with your project, and please let me know if there are any questions, &nbsp; Martijn ...

Unable to install labview in the new mac using the 'labview CD for Power Mac'
I have got a 'Labview full development system for power macintosh'. I have to use labview for some application and so I tried installing labview in my imac using this CD. The CD gets ejected out by itself. I tried it in a Mac laptop. There it opened, but when I try to install it, it gave the following message: 'You can't open the application 'Install Labview' because the classic environment is no longer supported'. Please note that the macs that I used are Intel based. What is the cause of this problem? What is the solution?The version of the software is : 6.0Please do the needful.Thankyou,Pavithra Souriraj The version you are trying to install was apparently written for Mac OS 9 or earlier, hence the reference to the Classic environment. The Classic environment is an emulation of OS 9 under OS X. However, Apple did not start using Intel processors until several years after the introduction of OS X, so they (Apple) did not develop an OS 9 emulator which will run on Intel based Macs. You cannot run LV 6 on an Intel based Mac. This is an Apple issue, not a National Instruments issue. LV 6 runs fine under OS X on a PowerPC Mac, as do several other versions.You will either need to get an older Mac or a newer version of LV. I am not sure which is the earliest version which will run on an Intel Mac.LynnUsing LV on the Mac since version 1.2 Hello Pavithra, Thank you for contacting National Instruments.&nbsp; Please look at this article for your ...

I'm trying to use an external vc++ program to call some of labviews functions in their dll's. Specifically DIO_Port_WriteInterface found in port write.

I can call it from vc++ by dynamically loading it but labview/windowsXP complain that: The value of ESP was not properly saved accross the function call.This is usually a result of calling a function declared with one calling convention with a function pointer dec...

Re: LabVIEW and LabVIEW RT?
Hello Iman, I will try to illustrate it with an example since it all will depend on the type of application you would like to implement. Let's say you would like to implement an application where you log data, maybe exchange data with databases and you acquire a bunch of data points at a time not performing any type of control and where high determinism is&nbsp;not needed. In this case LabVIEW for Windows work great. If you on the other hand would like to implement a closed-loop application where you need high determinism and reliability and will acquire data point by point you would use LabVIEW RT which is an add-on to LabVIEW. I.e. you need LabVIEW + LabVIEW RT when developing an RT application. ...

How to interface the Labview and Simulink (Matlab) without using the &quot;NI LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit&quot;?
Hello, I've been using the Labview for the data aquisition. And I also developed a controller in the Simulink (Matlab) environment. I'd like to control my application using both&nbsp;programs. How&nbsp;could I&nbsp;interface the Labview and Simulink (Matlab) without using the "NI LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit"? thank you, Kostya. Hi Kotsya, Thank you for posting to the National Instruments Discussion Forums. If you are not using the Math Interface Toolkit, you may be interested in using the MATLAB� Script Node. This allows you to call MATLAB� commands using ActiveX and I you can call your Simulink model from MATLAB� that way.

[Urgent]How can I write to physical memory by using LabVIEW 8.2??
Hi everybody, &nbsp; I am dealing with a project related to micro-EDM. We feed the gap voltage back to a NI&nbsp;DAQ card (not quite sure about the series number, might not be important&nbsp;to this problem), and we want to use this voltage to determine the command position of the motor, which is controlled by a Delta Tau PMAC motion controller. Now the problem is, the NI DAQ card and Delta Tau PMAC controller cannot communicate directly with&nbsp;each other. Therefore, we want the LabVIEW to write the value of voltage to a certain physical&nbsp;memory address, and then let the PMAC controller read that address. Is this feasible by using LabVIEW and NI-DAQ card? Which block or library in LabVIEW shall I use to achieve that? Or is there any alternative way to do it? Thanks a million! &nbsp; I have to get this done by the end of this week....if you know how to do it, please let me know. I really appreciate it!&nbsp;You are my lifesavor!&nbsp; &nbsp; Regards, Xiaofei Duplicate post: <a href="http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&amp;thread.id=289539&amp;jump=true" target="_blank">http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&amp;thread.id=289539&amp;jump=true</a> &nbsp; ...
