Issue Details

  • My while loop iterates too fast and my indicators update at a very fast rate. I want to update them at a slower rate so I can see the numbers

Solution

The following is an example of logic that you can use in your loop to update your indicators slowly.

 
The following are the True and False cases of the Case Structure.
 
 
The Random Number VI is used in this VI for demonstration purposes. The above VI updates the indicator labelled "Numeric" every 10000000 iterations of the while loop. The logic with the Quotient and Remainder VI makes use of the fact that the remainder is equal to 0 at every 10000000 iterations. Therefore, the "Equal to 0?" VI will only output True in those instances and that is when the "Numeric" indicator will be updated.
