vrf Strip Chart Data

Question asked by VRFuser on Mar 18, 2003
I hate it when I can't do simple things simply.  How do you folks handle
the following?

1) I want a test operator to be able to enter multi-line text comments
while a test is in progress and have the entry added to the data log
file whenever a "done" button is pressed. How do you provide a
reasonable looking multi-line text entry window that doesn't stop the
remainder of the program while waiting for a slow typist?

2) I need to send numerous simple text commands to an instrument with a
short pause between commands (no return data expected) -  exactly what
you would expect alternating "Write text"/"Wait" transactions in a
"To_String" object to do.  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work that
way which makes me wonder about the intended purpose of the "wait"
transaction in the first place.  Am I missing something or do you all
use 20 or 30 independent "to_string" objects to accomplish this simple
task?

3) I need a push button with an alternating "On" and "Off" caption - it
would be nice to change the color also. Somehow I don't feel this should
require an add-on ActiveX component.
