Challenge #3

Challenge #2 Winners

We are so happy to received submissions for Challenge #2 which is 3 times the previous solution. Thanks for your submissions.

1. Jhareesh Akella

Very good explanation, Handled most of the loop holes of this applications. Excellent coding style.

2. Shrikant Singh

Used inbuilt function to search the dictionary word. Also he used Defer Panel Updates Property to avoid UI Update while searching. This property will very use full for very big applications.

Defer Panel Updates Property

When you set this property to TRUE, LabVIEW redraws any front panel objects with pending changes then defers all new requests for front panel updates. For example, controls and indicators do not redraw when you change their properties or values. If the operating system requests a redraw, such as if the window is no longer behind another window, LabVIEW redraws the front panel with the current properties instead of the original properties. If FALSE, LabVIEW immediately redraws the changed elements of the front panel.

Here is the Defer panel update VI which is made by Shrikant singh. Make use of this to your applications.

3. Basker Babu

Good approach to attain the solution.

 Congrats all three. Keep Posting your solutions and share knowledge :) Challenge #2
