 nested while loops, inside loop not stopping correctly


A state machine is a while loop, with a case structure inside.  The
loop executes repeatedly, until the "exit" state sends a "stop" to the
while loop.

I am in the process of reviewing your code, and will email the results
to you.  I wanted to post here because this may be a common problem.

You can also go to the Topics section.  There is some discussion there
about program designs, which a state machine is.  There is a sample
posting there of mine that is kind of a state machine (with execution
and reiteration controlled outside of the program, by a caller.)  This
will give you something of an idea.

Additionally, you can search NIs website for examples of state
machines.  These are prolific designs, and you should be able to find

If you cannot, please let me know and I will create a simple example
and place a copy on the design discussion Topic on this site.

Good luck.

Hi VT92,

I tried to run the modified code, but it would execut one iteration
then stop.

Well, slap me upside the head.  I guess that was too easy.  I have it
working now.  Thanks for the help.

I have posted a simple (and working, what a bonus!) state machine in
the Discussion about Designs in "Topics" at the bottom of the overview
