I to have version 8.2 so this doesn't run. Shame, might have been able to build a good lesson around this.

Be nice if I could see it  - Jul 17, 2008

I'm sure I'm not the only one who is using a version of labview older than 8.5. It would be nice if this program was saved to something older.

need extra documentation  - Feb 12, 2008

Hi this example shows a number of styles. Good for teaching these styles but missing the comments on what is a very good and less good style. e.g. having four operations within one case and only really using one is not good and surely not modular but shows nicely the effect of the switch function. Please add this to this example and it becomes a nice lesson in itself.
