Can I Use BITXML To Configure and Initiate PXI-MIL-STD-1553?

Issue Details

I have a Ballard MIL-STD-1553 card or similar and would like to only use BITXML to control the card so that each channel responds. Is this possible? 

Solution

BITXML is only used to create an XML file to load onto the card, but not control the card itself.  To control the card, the XML file will need to be written with the appropriate commands, then LabVIEW will control the card.  BITXML is not a soft front panel style application. 

Additional Information

If you need a soft front panel application with more out of the box functionality, you may want to consider CoPilot made and sold by Astronics.
