Inspired by a Microsoft .NET Chart demonstration, community member Thoric has developed an XControl for NI LabVIEW software with similar functionality. The XControl allows you to set names and axis labels, add as many data series as you want, change the plot type and switch between 2D and 3D plotting, change design features on your graph, and include a legend. Thoric also shared an Interactive Demo to show how easy it is to program the XControl to expand on the built-in functionality. You’ll need to download the free MicrosoftCharts toolkit before proceeding onto the coding. Go check out Thoric’s example below!

LAVA and OpenG are two popular online forums where LabVIEW users discuss LabVIEW programming, exchange code and gather feedback to be shared with NI LabVIEW R&D. The groups’ NIWeek barbeque brings together forum members and other LabVIEW users for a fun evening of food and networking.

 

The 2011 barbeque will take place Tuesday, August 2 at Scholz Garten in downtown Austin. Tickets for the event are $30 per person.
