jhorne Posted February 13, 2017 Share Posted February 13, 2017 Hi, This seems like a rather straightforward problem but I cant seem to figure it out. I am a beginner with DAQFactory, and i am using a Labjack U6 device to record data. I am able to log channels correctly and I followed a couple examples here in the forum for creating a Button that automatically starts logging while renaming the file based on the time (see code below) if (logging.mylog.running) endlogging(mylog) else logging.mylog.strFileName = "C:\Desktop\DAQ\log_" + formatdatetime("%y%m%d_%H%M%S",systime()) + ".csv" beginlogging(mylog) endif as well as a Variable Value component that lets you change the file save location private string path = File.FileSaveDialog(logging.mylog.strFileName) if (!IsEmpty(path)) logging.mylog.strFileName = path endif What I would like to do now is instead of saving as "log_DATEANDTIME" I have a few combo boxes where the user selects options based on the test configuration. All options are numeric, for example the number of nozzles, the size, and flowrate. I would like to save them as variable so that the filename can be more descriptive, for example: "log_DATEANDTIME_1_3_30" for 1 nozzle, size #3, at 30 litres per minute Any help is appreciated.
