Enhanced Productivity

The NI LabVIEW Idea Exchange has revolutionized the way LabVIEW users prioritize features in LabVIEW software. LabVIEW 2011 introduces 13 features implemented directly from user feedback that are intended to enhance your productivity. These features include the alignment/distribution tools on wires, layout improvements to the “Create subVI” operation, and the ability to create type definitions directly from a constant on the block diagram.


Stability Worthy of Mission-Critical Applications

With the evolving needs of mission-critical applications, LabVIEW 2011 features a renewed focus on stability and edit-time performance. While LabVIEW 2011 takes a major step forward with fewer bugs and faster VI load times and edit-time operations, it also features a new NI Error Reporter service that lets you add notes, attach code, and send an error report to NI with just a few mouse clicks. In the rare event that LabVIEW 2011 does crash on you, click “Send” to help NI address the issue in the future.


New UI Library

LabVIEW 2011 contains an all-new modern library of UI controls and indicators to honor the 25th anniversary of LabVIEW. This Silver palette contains over 40 customized buttons to reduce the time you spend customizing built-in controls. These controls were designed with drop shadows, antialiasing, and an updated color scheme to create that “wow” factor in your UIs.


Advanced Multicore API

LabVIEW 2011 introduces a two-VI API for creating and retrieving data from VIs running asynchronously. Use this new API to easily manage data running in multiple threads, even if they aren’t part of your main VI.
