Issue Details

When I wire a Waveform Data type wire to a Double Indicator it still runs and shows a red coercion dot.  When I wire the same Waveform Data type to a Double Input on the Formula Node, the wire breaks.  Is this expected and how do I work around it?


This is a known issue and has been reported to National Instruments.  In order to work around this you will use the 'to double' function located on the Numeric Palette of the Block Diagram in the Conversion Folder.  The work around is shown here:
