Hi all!

I am trying to use NationalInstruments.Analysis.Math to calculate the slope and intercept of a graph using VB. I'm using the CurveFit property but cannot find any resources regarding the applicable syntax. Any any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Paulie,

Have you had a look at the Getting Started guides for Measurement Studio? There are versiosn for Visual Studio 2010, and Visual Studio 2005 and 2008.

This might also be useful.

I hope that helps.

Kind Regards,

Oli

Maybe you want something like this?

Dim xArray() As Double = New Double(samples - 1) {} Dim dataArray() As Double = New Double(samples - 1) {} Dim fittedArray() As Double = New Double(samples - 1) {} Dim slope As Double Dim intercept As Double Dim residue As Double fittedArray = CurveFit.LinearFit(xArray, dataArray, FitMethod.LeastSquare, slope, intercept, residue)

The LinearFit method has several overloaded methods, but the simplest one that still provides the slope and intercept output is:

Public Shared Function LinearFit ( _ inputXData As Double(), _ inputYData As Double(), _ fitMethod As FitMethod, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef slope As Double, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef intercept As Double, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef residue As Double _ ) As Double()
