VI High 23: LabVIEW 2011 New Feature - Wiring to the Error Cluster with an Or Function
So we want to stop a While Loop on error OR from a user clicking the Stop button on the front panel.
Before LabVIEW 2011, we used to have to unbundle the error cluster before wiring into an Or function going to the While Loop conditional terminal. Not anymore! See how it’s done in this quick video.

Experience level: Basic
“New in LabVIEW 2011 is a feature where we don’t need to explicitly unbundle the Boolean status from the error cluster. So instead of using the unbundle by name, I’ll just delete it, and wire the error cluster directly into the Boolean Or.
And LabVIEW is smart enough to pluck the Boolean Or out of this error cluster and use it for this Or comparison. Much easier.”
