Owning Palette: Queue Operations Functions

Requires: Base Development System

Removes an element from the front of a queue and returns the element.

If the queue is empty, the function waits timeout in ms before timing out. If an element becomes available in the queue during the wait, the function removes and returns the element and timed out? is FALSE. If queue becomes invalid (for example, the queue reference is released), the function stops waiting and returns error code 1122.


queue is a reference to a queue. Use the Obtain Queue function to obtain a queue reference.
timeout in ms specifies the time, in milliseconds, that the function waits for an element to become available in the queue if the queue is empty. The default is –1, indicating never to time out.

If the function waits timeout in ms and the queue remains empty, timed out? is TRUE.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
queue out returns the reference to the queue unchanged.
element is the element at the front of the queue. This data type changes to match the subtype of queue.
timed out? is TRUE if an element did not become available in the queue before the function timed out or if an error occurred.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.


Refer to the Queue Overflow and Underflow VI in the labview\examples\Synchronization\Queue directory for an example of using the Dequeue Element function.
