Chapter 16. Connectivity in LabVIEW

Overview

In this chapter, you’ll learn about the different ways you can connect LabVIEW VIs to the Internet, your network, and other programs. We’ll see how you can easily use LabVIEW’s built-in web server to publish front panels to the Web. You’ll become familiar with network variables and how they can be used to share data between LabVIEW VIs across the network. XML, ActiveX, .NET connectivity (Windows), AppleEvents, and pipes provide you with a way to have LabVIEW interact with external programs. We’ll see where LabVIEW fits in the big picture of the “enterprise” data management and databases. And, finally, we will take a quick look at the report generation VIs.
